C++: A Dialog: Programming with the C++ Standard Library

From the 1st time I encountered this ebook i used to be inspired with the assumption and process of training somebody without historical past whatever. This nearly assured a finished insurance of a language that certainly has its complexities. The e-book as a complete, with its supply and take among the writer and his pupil, permit the nooks and crannies of virtually all of the topics coated to be uncovered and defined only.

.NET e-Business Architecture

It is a okay publication, however the obtain code dose now not paintings. The ebook is dead with out the code. and do not count on any aid from the writer, you will not get any! So keep your funds and purchase one other publication as a substitute!

Microsoft .NET - Architecting Applications for the Enterprise

A software program architect’s digest of center practices, pragmatically utilized Designing powerful structure is your most sensible technique for dealing with undertaking complexity–and enhancing your effects. however the rules and practices of software program architecting–what the authors name the “science of tough decisions”–have been evolving for cloud, cellular, and different shifts.

Example text

Lines 4 to 7 are forward declarations of the Qt classes that we will use to implement the dialog. A forward declaration tells the C++ compiler that a class exists, without giving all the detail that a class definition (usually located in a header file of its own) provides. We will say more about this shortly. Next, we define FindDialog as a subclass of QDialog: 8 class FindDialog : public QDialog 9 { 10 Q_OBJECT 11 public: 12 FindDialog(QWidget *parent = 0); Part I: Basic Qt 17 18 Part I: Basic Qt The Q_OBJECT macro at the beginning of the class definition is necessary for all classes that define signals or slots.

But this isn't necessary, since Qt automatically deletes child objects when the parent is destroyed, and the child widgets and layouts are all descendants of the FindDialog. Now we will look at the dialog's slots: 39 void FindDialog::findClicked() 40 { 41 QString text = lineEdit->text(); 42 Qt::CaseSensitivity cs = 43 caseCheckBox->isChecked() ? isEmpty()); 54 } The findClicked() slot is called when the user clicks the Find button. It emits the findPrevious() or the findNext() signal, depending on the Search backward option.

A More button lets the user switch between the simple and extended appearances. We will create the widget with its extended appearance in Qt Designer, and hide the secondary and tertiary keys at run-time as needed. The widget looks complicated, but it's fairly easy to do in Qt Designer. The trick is to do the primary key part first, then duplicate it twice to obtain the secondary and tertiary keys: 1. Click File|New Form and choose the "Dialog without Buttons" template. 2. Create an OK button and drag it to the top right of the form.
