Qt Quick Designer and Qt Quick Controls 2

Qt 5.6 introduced the Qt Quick Controls 2 and they are already integrated in the upcoming release of Qt Creator 4.0.

We took this as a reason to create a video that shows how the new controls can be used to build a UI easily using Qt Creator and the integrated Qt Quick Designer.

The video shows how we create the UI of a simple home automation application for a touch device. Finally we run the software on a hardware with the boot2qt stack installed.

The UI uses the material style that comes with the Qt Quick Controls 2. We also show a couple of new features that help to maintain the split between .qml and .ui.qml files.

All these features are both in the free Open Source version and the commercial version of Qt Creator 4.0.
