Creating and running Qt apps in QNX CAR systems

Qt Creator supports the entire Qt app lifecycle, from creating projects to defining source files and other resources to deploying the app on a target QNX CAR system. After it's installed on your target, you can run the app by tapping its icon in the Apps Section screen.

The sections that follow provide a walkthrough of writing a Qt app, packaging it, deploying it on a QNX CAR system, and then running it. Here, app refers to a Qt program packaged as a BAR file, which makes it visible in the Apps Section screen of the HMI. The steps for writing a more elaborate application (e.g., a new HMI) are the same except for the packaging (because the application would not be packaged as a BAR file).
