Detailed Description

To load the Qt Positioning module, add the following statement to your .qml files

import QtPositioning

For C++ projects include the header appropriate for the current use case, for example applications using routes may use

#include <QGeoCoordinate>

Using the Module

Using a Qt module requires linking against the module library, either directly or through other dependencies. Several build tools have dedicated support for this, including CMake and qmake.

Building with CMake

Use the find_package() command to locate the needed module components in the Qt6 package:

find_package(Qt6 COMPONENTS Positioning REQUIRED)
target_link_libraries(mytarget PRIVATE Qt6::Positioning)

Building with qmake

To configure the module for building with qmake, add the module as a value of the QT variable in the project's .pro file:

QT += positioning
