Generic Component Framework – Help

One of the nice things about programming with Qt is “Qt Assistant”. One of the sexiest documentation tools in the market today, by my opinion. We wanted to ensure that developers are able to access GCF documentation from within Qt Assistant as well. The new QtHelp module in Qt 4.4 helps us to do all this magic.

  • We now have a HelpSystem module (written by my colleague Vasudha) in GCF. Using this module you can quickly provide a help browser in your GCF-Qt applications.
  • We also have tools that automatically generate HTML documentation (using doxygen), extract keywords (using doxytag), generate QHP and QHCP files (using our own DoxygenToQHP tool) and generate QCH and QHC files for Qt Assistant and QtHelp module to make use of.

The screenshots below show the magic in action 🙂
