Qt SCXML Media Player QML Example (Static)#

A Qt Quick application that sends data to and receives it from a compiled ECMAScript data model.


Media Player QML Example (Static) demonstrates how to access data from an ECMAScript data model that is compiled into a C++ class.

The UI is created using Qt Quick.

Running the Example#

To run the example from Qt Creator, open the Welcome mode and select the example from Examples. For more information, visit Building and Running an Example.

Using the ECMAScript Data Model#

We specify the data model as a value of the datamodel attribute of the <scxml> element in mediaplayer-common/mediaplayer.scxml:

Compiling the State Machine#

We link against the Qt SCXML module by adding the following lines to the example’s build files.

  • .pro*

when using qmake:#

We then specify the state machine to compile:

  • CMakeLists.txt*

when using cmake:#

We then specify the state machine to compile:

The statechart directives STATECHARTS or qt6_add_statecharts invoke the Qt SCXML Compiler, qscxmlc, which is run automatically to generate a header and a source file, which are then added appropriately for compilation.

Instantiating the State Machine#

We instantiate the generated MediaPlayerStateMachine class in mediaplayer-qml-static.cpp:
