Creating and running Qt apps

Qt Creator supports the entire Qt app lifecycle, from project creation to source file and resource definition to app deployment on a target system.

The sections that follow provide a walkthrough of writing the code for a Qt app, packaging the app, deploying it on a target system, and running it. Here, app refers to a Qt program packaged as a Blackberry ARchive (BAR) file, which you can unpackage on the target to make the app accessible from the HMI. To run the app, you simply tap its icon in the Home screen.

To develop Qt apps, you must have installed and configured the necessary Qt tools (including Qt Creator), as explained in Preparing your host system for Qt development.
