Qt Sensors - QML Example


Qt Sensors in QML

The QtSensors - QML example demonstrates the QML sensors types in the QtSensors import.

To write a QML application that will use the QML sensors types in the QtSensors import you need to to the following steps:

Import the QtSensors declarative plugin:

import QtSensors

Add the Sensor QML types into your qml file.

In this example we use the TiltSensor :

TiltSensor {
    id: tilt
    active: false

The Tilt-, AmbientLight- and the Proximity QML sensor types have the ‘enabled’ property in common. To start or stop the sensor set this property to true or false.

tilt.active = (tiltStart.text === "Start");

Reading the data can be done for each sensor type like following:


text: "X Rotation: " + (tilt.reading ? tilt.reading.xRotation.toFixed(2) + "°" : "Unknown")        text: "Y Rotation: " + (tilt.reading ? tilt.reading.yRotation.toFixed(2) + "°" : "Unknown")


onReadingChanged: {
    if (reading.lightLevel == AmbientLightReading.Dark)
        ambientlighttext.text = "Ambient light: Dark";
    else if (reading.lightLevel == AmbientLightReading.Twilight)
        ambientlighttext.text = "Ambient light: Twilight";
    else if (reading.lightLevel == AmbientLightReading.Light)
        ambientlighttext.text = "Ambient light: Light";
    else if (reading.lightLevel == AmbientLightReading.Bright)
        ambientlighttext.text = "Ambient light: Bright";
    else if (reading.lightLevel == AmbientLightReading.Sunny)
        ambientlighttext.text = "Ambient light: Sunny";
        ambientlighttext.text = "Ambient light: Unknown";


text: "Proximity: " +
      (proxi.active ? (proxi.reading.near ? "Near" : "Far") : "Unknown")
