Trolltech Brings Scripts to Qt Applications with New Product

7/3/2003 - Trolltech announced that Qt applications are now scriptable with the release of Qt Script for Applications (QSA). Leveraging the powerful Qt API, QSA takes static Qt/C++ applications, and makes them dynamic.

"QSA was designed to tightly integrate with Qt, ensuring that developers donít have to worry about binding layers or subset functionality," said Eirik Eng, Trolltech president. "All developers need to do is add a few lines of code to their Qt applications, and then the apps are enabled for scripting and extending."

QSA enables developers to: Prototype changes in already-compiled applications; write test scripts; customize applications to individual customer's business requirements; script-enable applications so that power-users can write sophisticated macros; and provide script-based fixes for previously released applications.

The QSA toolkit includes the following components:
