The first official Trolltech guide to Qt 3.2 programming!
Straight from Trolltech, this book covers all you need to build industrial-strength applications with Qt 3.2.x and C++--applications that run natively on Windows, Linux/Unix, Mac OS X, and embedded Linux with no source code changes! The book teaches solid Qt programming practices; it is not a rehash of the documentation.
Build powerful C++ GUI applications quickly and easily
Design dialogs and main windows visually and in code
Learn Qt's innovative type-safe signals and slots mechanism
Use layouts to create forms that automatically size and scale
Create custom signals, slots, events, and controls
Program the ''Qt way'' with techniques for Qt 3.2 that'll work with Qt 4

Write database and XML applications
Internationalize to reach foreign markets
Exploit platform-specific-features like ActiveX
Already using Qt or just starting out? Evaluating Qt or managing it? Building open source applications--or commercial applications? Want to develop for Windows without buying an expensive compiler? Whatever your goal, this is the only book you need!
