Previewing on Devices

To preview UIs on Android devices, enable USB debugging on them and connect them to your system with a USB cable.

To preview UIs on Boot2Qt devices, connect the devices to your system with a USB cable, or a wired or wireless connection, depending on the device, and configure connections to them. The necessary kits have been predefined and you only need to enable them for your current project.

Deploy configurations handle the packaging and copying of the necessary files to a location in a device where you want to run the executable at.

Note: To preview on a wirelessly connected device, go to Preferences > Devices and connect the device.

  1. In the bottom toolbar, select and enable the kit predefined for the device type.
