@gillesfernandez yup, we need to compare them. Also, I think that shorty could do screenshot sequences (I don't recall if we did that in qml or C++)
I just had a look - it does not do sequences, but you can inject events using it, e.g. keypresses and mouse clicks
@/all I just did an initial review of all the issues for qmlbook and tagged them. For all typos, I'll try to get them fixed this weekend.
bugs can be super easy, but some requires some analysis - I would prioritize them next
that will give us an up to date baseline
@gillesfernandez How should that go practically? I would not like that a screenshot solution has any influence on an example. Also not every root item has a grab method (e.g. Window). I find the current solution to have the functionality in the runtime is a good approach.
@jryannel that's what I was pointing out
someone asks why not a pure QML method
might be worth showing how the qml method works, but what are the limitations
no sequences, not all items, bad image quality (not sure the one you have does better, didn't try it)
@Brethzel_gitlab I know we use the grabToImage function in many test qml documents.
I just closed all typos. Quite a few of them where already fixed, but I've walked through all of them.
@jryannel I've done a whole bunch of updates now, but I'm not sure about the travis build status.
to me, it looks broken
will the page auto-update, or do I have to do something?
Currently I would need to run the publish script. Ideally in the future we create release tags and auto publish latest tag
Travis is still broken
I think that we should do tags according to Qt releases, and then have a dev build which is the current bleeding edge
When we tag for a Qt release I would expect we update also all QML imports for the latest? And this tag would also mean that would be the Qt version we tested agains. Korrekt?
Hello everyone, i'm new to become c++ developer with qt and i want to know i qml book teach in how to develop app with c++
@xhimanshuz the qmlbook is about QML, even though there are some chapters on how to extend a QML application with C++. If you want to learn C++ and Qt, the qmlbook is the wrong resource.
@e8johan Thanks man you saved my life and time, is there any other resources where i can lean qt with c++ then i will be more appreciable.
I'm not sure what's available on-line (I'm sure there is something). I wrote the Foundations of Qt Development a few years back (available through APress).
Also, if you are learning both C++ and Qt, I recommend that you start with basic C++ first, then continue with Qt.
This will teach you about the language (C++) first, before you go into the details of the framework (Qt), since Qt uses C++ in a specific way.
@e8johan but i already know c++ now i want to learn c++, i need resources

Hi erveryone, I am studing QML and almost now I bumped into a small issue with the book assets in chapter 4. It is a small thing, the greenbox asset in the transformation segment and example is missing. In the download files there is a box_green@2x and 3x, not a simple boox_green with 64x64 pixels. Just to let you know. Thank you for this material, it is very helpful.
@silviogatisf Thanks for telling - I will create an issue.
Hi guys, do you have qmlbook as presentation somewhere?
@e8johan congrats on your sponsoring !
Thanks! It is great to be able to spend some time on this project again!
@jmlich nopes, there is no such version available.
Hello, how can i help with german translation?
i am from germany, a teacher and i want to learn qt and qml, so i need a book, i thougt, when i help with translation, i will learn something about qt and qml
can you answer me at gerhard . prade @ outlook . com please? Thank you
Same for Arabic.
Is there a Yahoo Groups-style user community forum for QMLBook where questions can be posted in a bit more detail than makes sense on a pseudo-real-time chat room like this?
@amreisa thanks for reaching out. We're currently restructuring the CI/CD, so we have a plan for translations, but none in place.
We need to figure out how to support this before we make anyone spending time on it.
as for community forum - good idea - because this room is not really "monitored", as you might have noticed :-)
Thanks, @e8johan. I'm having one specific problem (so far) with the QMLBook tutorial. It'll take a relatively longer post to describe, perhaps not suitable for this chat room. Should I go ahead and post it here, or is there a better venue to post it?
One problem with posting it here is that every time I hit <ENTER> it posts what I've written, so not really suitable for posts that contain more than one paragraph.
Thanks, @e8johan. I have posted my first question in the Qt Forum "QML and QT Quick" sub-forum at https://forum.qt.io/category/12/qml-and-qt-quick. I will also send it to you directly. Please respond in whichever way is most convenient to you.
