Is it wise to use qt with bsf?



I’m new to game development. I like QT, especially the gui builder. Is it difficult to integrate QT into bsf and if so, is it wise?

Thank you very much!

Qt is one of the biggest GUI libraries around. I’m not 100% certain but I think it is basically impossible to embed that in another program. So the only possible thing to do is embed bsf inside a Qt application. Qt has a widget that lets you draw on it using opengl so it is theoretically possible to have bsf perform drawing in a Qt widget. However that is likely very difficult to do (unless I missed some bsf feature that allows this to happen). If you are a beginner I suggest you stay very far away from attempting this.

I do understand why you’d want to do this though as the inbuilt GUI system in bsf is lacking. I hope this will get addressed in the future.
