Using MarbleWidget in your project.

This is a small HOWTO describing how I used Marble in my university project. Some facts: - The build environment I used was CMake - I used the latest Marble SVN version (because it had the latest features)

To be able to #include and to link Marble in your project, you have to add the Marble headers and library in your CMakeLists.txt file:

INCLUDE_DIRECTORIES(
...yourDirectories
/usr/local/include/marble) #or whatever the path to your Marble installation(!)
 
TARGET_LINK_LIBRARIES(yourProject ${QT_LIBRARIES}; marblewidget)
</code>
 
To actually use the widget, it's quite easy. I had a pointer
<syntaxhighlight lang="text">
MarbleWidget *mwidget;
</code>
and used it like any other widget, e.g:
<syntaxhighlight lang="text">
mwidget->show();
mwidget->moveLeft();
</code>
 
You can get the default theme (map) up and running as a widget with the following:
<syntaxhighlight lang="text">
mwidget = new MarbleWidget;
mwidget->setMapThemeId("earth/srtm/srtm.dgml");
</code>
For a screenshot of what I did, see http://www.kdedevelopers.org/node/3206 (it's the one with the satellites) - thanks tackat.
If you want to have to source of my project or want further information, drop a line and I'll gladly try to help: claudiu dot covaci at gmail dot com
 
Have fun!
