QtCreator – Search & Replace with Captured Texts

I wanted to replace many occurrences of

g_theme.themeDisplay(100, 80, 65)

by

g_theme.thSz([100, 80, 65])

in many QML files. The values of the three integer arguments varied from occurrence to occurrence. What I hoped for was that QtCreator’s search & replace function for regular expressions would support captured texts – the three arguments.

Building HMI of Harvester with Qt

At Qt Developer Days 2014 in San Francisco, I gave a talk with title “Case Study: Driver Terminal for Forage Harvester”. I describe the technical challenges and their solutions when I helped Krone to develop the driver terminal of their new BigX 480/580 forage harvesters with QML, Qt and C++. Here are the slides of my presentation and an abstract.

Revolutionary HMI-Design of Forage Harvester

Agricultural OEM Krone bets on Qt software library for development of their terminal / First prototype read in less than three months

585 horsepower, 15.6 litres engine displacement and an up to 9 metre wide cutterhead – forage harvesters are among the most powerful agricultural machines. It takes a lot more technology and know-how to drive such a vehicle than a car. The driver terminal of a forage harvester must process information from more than 30 components like motor, cutterhead, metal detector or grinder within tenths of a second. The terminal additionally provides a diagnosis system. The agricultural OEM Krone from Lower Saxony has built all these functions into the touch-screen terminal of its forage harvester Big X 480/580. The HMI software of the terminal was developed with the GUI and application library Qt.

Why Use Qt for Embedded Systems

When my customers develop embedded systems, they face similar challenges:

  • Challenge 1: iPhone-Like HMI
  • Challenge 2: Internet-Connected
  • Challenge 3: Running Everywhere
  • Challenge 4: Fast Time-To-Market

Using examples from different industries, I’ll first elaborate on the challenges and then on how Qt can help us to solve these challenges. These challenges are typical for nearly every industry nowadays: automotive, agricultural, medical, manufacturing, home-appliance, home-automation – to name just a few.

My Talk “Practical QML” at Qt Developer Days 2013

My talk “Practical QML” at Qt Developers Days in Berlin and San Francisco was pretty popular: about 70 attendees at each location. Thank you very much for your interest and your great questions! The main topic was key navigation with QML. Side topics were changing languages and themes dynamically. Here are my slides and the sample code.
