We suggest you use the Qt Creator version provided. Newer versions change features and will not match the support materials we provide to you. Reach components are tied to a specific version. Newer versions may change the way Reach components are supported. About Qt Creator Qt Creator is the cross-platform IDE that makes UI development a breeze. Since time-to-market is key, the IDE includes productivity tools that speed up your development time.
The Help system built into our version of Qt Creator provides examples suitable for use in our environment. Examples found on the Internet may be for newer versions of Qt Creator which are not compatible with the version we supply.
If when you switch to Design mode you get the, “Using Qt Quick 1 code model instead of Qt Quick 2 (M324) error,” you are probably using the wrong default kit. You should be using the “Qt 5.3.1 Desktop” kit. Follow these steps to update your kit: From the Qt Creator menu select Tools -> Options. Click the “Build and Run” option in the “Options” pane, on the left-hand side. Under the “Kits” tab choose “Qt 5.3.1 Desktop” and click the “Make Default” button on the right-hand side. Click the “Apply” button at the bottom right-hand side.
Qt Creator has a few quirks/bugs. Try switching to Edit mode and then back to Design mode.
You must use the Edit mode in Qt Creator to change add/change items to a List Field. The Design mode is used for look and feel, while the Editor mode is used for entering GUI details.
The Qt Quick Controls module components are designed for desktop (mouse and keyboard) applications, not for touchscreens. As such, we do not support them. If there is a control in this set that does something our QML components do not, please let us know.
