Talk:Development/Tutorials/Using KActions

2007/3/18: The .ui file isn't working with trunk from svn

I fixed it by using this instead:

<!DOCTYPE kpartgui SYSTEM "kpartgui.dtd"> <kpartgui version="2" name="tutorial3"> <ToolBar name="mainToolBar" >

   <text>Main Toolbar</text>
   <Action name="clear" />
   <Menu name="file" >
     <Action name="clear" />



I'm not shure why. Should this be added to the tutorial?

Let's wait, to my experience this is repaired quickly --Tstaerk 21:12, 18 March 2007 (CET)

after creating the files i get this error message after starting the tutorial 3 application (through dbus-launch ./tutorial3):

tutorial3: WARNING: KXMLGUIClient::setXMLFile: cannot find .rc file tutorial3ui.rc

but this file exists in the current directory... any hint? thx --Stefon 21:41, 16 April 2007 (CEST)

It tells you in the CMake section that you must install the application in order to get it to work. --milliams 22:38, 16 April 2007 (CEST)

sorry. you are right. maybe we can stress this difference out a little more?

Broken tutorial (kdelibs have changed)

KAction has no constructor which takes a KActionCollection and a QString as stated in the tutorial. Also, moments later in the "final" code section, this constructor is not used.

A QAction is also being used! :@

Well it seems that KActionCollection extends QAction, so I doubt it's even possible or sane to use a KAction here. Not to mention that if you use QAction you depend a little less on the kdelibs. The problem is that knowing that, you learn basically nothing about KAction in this Tutorial.


Where possible, K* classes should be used in place of Q* classes. I've fixed the tutorial to correctly use KAction. --milliams 17:26, 28 June 2007 (CEST)

The link on KStandardAction is dead, it should lead to but leads to classmapper, which doesn't find it. 12/27/07


It's really a problem with classmapper that it doesn't search for namespace matches. Nonetheless, I've changed it now to hard-link to the url. Thanks for pointing this out. --milliams 23:07, 27 December 2007 (CET)
