introducing X2

I know the number of Qt experts out there is growing (like crazy). Still, I believe we should do more to help people master this great framework. I am aware that I might bore you with few Qt code examples I did last year or even the year before, but somehow I feel that I won't do no harm if I keep sharing new stuff I learn every now and then (especially since now I got a new toy). And maybe it's not too bad if I change this blog tagline to "don't code today what you can't share tomorrow" :)

Since I am not with Nokia/Qt anymore, I also left the Graphics Dojo corner behind. I decide to publish my new and upcoming Qt examples under a new moniker: X2 from Ofi Labs. The two Xs there stand technically for eXperiments and eXamples, though X2 only sounds cool (even if that X-Men movie would not exist) and I prefer it that way. The name "Ofi Labs" will require a longer explanation, which I rather not elaborate right now.

The git repository for X2 is at gitorious.org/ofi-labs/X2. In the next few days, watch this space for the first few examples.

Meanwhile, enjoy the logo. If you are an artist, feel free to propose a new and better logo!

Would be nice to see these examples in a wiki, maybe kde techbase.

Years ago, you wrote an example of how to add Dock Widget controls to the menu bar... I just wanted to add this snippet for posterity:

ui->menuView->addAction( ui->dockWidget->toggleViewAction() );

It seems like there should be a way to do that in Creator, maybe next version...
