Qt UI Module

The Qt UI module provides user interface related components.

The following configure line can be used to build the Base and UI module:

    ./configure -modules ui -device xyz [-ui-type [mobile|home]]

The -ui-type option is optional and is used to select whether the mobile phone or the video IP deskphone user interface is selected. By default the mobile phone is chosen.

Feature description

Qt Extended supports two different user interface implementations. The first user interface targets keypad/touchscreen based mobile devices whereas the second interface type is suitable for IP and video based desktop devices such as a deskphone. The UI module includes the components for both user interface types. The selection of the user interface happens via the -ui-types flag passed to configure.

Both UI types have common support components which are required regardless what UI style is chosen. By selecting the UI module but not selecting a particular UI style the following components are selected:

This table outlines the differences between the Qt Extended UI types:

UI typeDescription
mobileThe mobile UI style is selected by passing "-ui-type mobile" option to configure. In addition to the components common to both UI types the mobile UI style provides the following components:
homeThe deskphone UI style is selected by passing "-ui-type home" option to configure. In addition to the components common to both UI types the video UI style provides the following additional components:

Software components

The UI module includes the following software components:

The exact list of components included in this module can be found in $QPEDIR/src/module_ui.pri.
