The player, for lack of a better name, is called LlamaBox. In regards to the S4, I pointed out 60Hz because that is a good thing. If that switcher changes it to 60Hz then something is right. Anyways, a BIOS flash fixed the problem.Originally Posted by intuitionsys
As far as Qt goes.... It is the reason why I wrote my own toolkit. Speaking of that: I just spent today writing a really nice line drawing algorithm. It is based off bresenham's algorithm, but it draws lines with various weight and cap styles. This is needed on my VFD panel where there is no API for drawing primitives. (I've been limited to 1-pixel wide lines on this device until now).
But, The toolkit is coming along nicely. I added selection to the listview widget and I'm in the process of adding a TreeView. I have one huge stumbling block ahead: adding the theming engine. I must decide where to draw the line between the widget level and theme level.
Have you enjoyed using Qt's Styles? Are you making your own QStyle or are you just making your own widgets? When you make your own widgets, do you use the primitives provided by QStyle or do you just do it all by hand? This is the kind of experience I need to decide where to draw this line.
This line must lie somewhere between: "The style draws every widget, the widgets do not draw themselves" to "There is no Style".
The first method has two obvious disadvantages: Custom widgets must be used with a Style that supports them. Derived widgets cause a problem and there isn't any code reusability. The second method doesn't even provide Styles.
So, the answer is some place in the middle, where the Style provides primitives like borders, glyphs, fills, etc.. The hard part is quantifying all of these elements and finding a reasonable granularity.
Oh yeah, and I need to write this kernel module for the HQCT Radio.
EDIT: If you post or read information on this thread that you believe is important or critical then please let me know so I can add it the the first post. Might as well do this right. So, let me know -- even if you just read something from this thread and it helped you out.
EDIT, PART II: If you think of a name better then LlamaBox (there is undoubtably one) the let me know. It doesn't have to relate to anything -- just sound cool. But please PM it to me, or I guess I could start a thread. Now I am just rambling.
