Hello Experts!

This is my first attempt to use QT.

I dragged and dropped kcolorbutton component.

Now I cannot compile, compiler cannot find "kcolorbutton.h" file.

What should I do?

Thank you

'kcolorbutton.h' is not part of Qt, at least not for the Windows version - it actually belongs to KDE.

Oh, BTW - if you are in fact compiling on Linux, installing the KDE development environment should work (see http://techbase.kde.org/Development or better the Packet Manager of your choice).

I suggest you download Qt library or QtSdk to get all tools together before start developing. KDE version of things are little different.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

So if I develop my application using this component and run it on Linux without KDE it will not work?

No, it wouldn't work without KDE, e.g. Gnome would fail - they're simply not compatible. That's the price you have to pay when being able to choose between different desktop environments.

Are there any components (like drop down menus etc) which I may use with QT and would work on any Ubuntu/ Fedora PCs?

Thank you

All will work - given that you install the necessary KDE libs ;o)

If you are into a platform-independent alternative, take a look at http://wxwidgets.org/
