C++ CadCam program development with CodeBlocks instead of QT

Hi,

@bbsr_5a,
nice work !

@Clive,
Thanks for your dxf ellipse drawing. The ellipse read in and display works!
I mentioned, Freecad saves an ellipse as a spline to dxf output. Inkscape does the same. I am wondering what would
be the reason of doing this?

@forum readers,
The Cadcam program written in C++ Codeblocks goes steady forward. Using Codeblocks is a learning process.
I have updated some snap buttons with led style. Managed to show a child dialog when the right mouse button is clicked.
So far so good ! Have a nice day !

Hi Grotius,

I loosely followed your postings.

When I read about your changes from Qt to Codeblocks, I wonder about the benefit you expect from codeblocks.

Afaik codeblocks is "just" an IDE, so you can compare codeblocks with QT Creator, but not with Qt. Qt is mainly known as UI-library (at least I understand it as that), whereas codeblocks works with Qt, wxWindows and many more.
For me, codeblocks is by far the slowest IDE I ever tried. Even eclipse, which is considered very slow is faster than codeblocks. Moreover the official codeblock seems to be abandoned and only a few hardliners keep on working on codeblocks.

So if you changed your UI-library from Qt to wxWindows, you can continue without codeblocks. wxFormBuilder is available as standalone application and wxLua is a fast scriping UI.

Cheers Reinhard

I used to like codeblocks, I really haven't used it since I stopped programming in windows using the win32asm packages and tutorials. It's a shame to hear of it falling by the wayside.

Hi Reinhard,

When I read about your changes from Qt to Codeblocks, I wonder about the benefit you expect from codeblocks.

This has mainly to do with the Qt licence. If you don't contribute to Qt, you have to purchase a licence.
Codeblocks has a different licence. For open source application's QT is free. For commercial program's you have to purchage
a Qt licence one day..

When you program in Qt without using the actual Qt libraries, but using std libraries, you can converse a Qt program to a Codeblocks program in short time.

Hi BeagleBrainz,

It's a shame to hear of it falling by the wayside.
I find out Codeblocks is difficulter to program than Qt. Qt has a powerfull compile debug output. Codeblocks also crashes a few times a day. When you have a expensive piece of software like Autocad, it can save you much money if ported from Qt to Codeblocks.
