Qt Creator is a cross-platform and open source graphical Integrated Development Environment (IDE) application that provides Qt developers with everything they need to create usable and attractive graphical user interfaces (GUIs). It supports both Qt4 and Qt5 toolkits.

It is comprised of a visual debugger, a forms designer and an integrated GUI (Graphical User Interface) layout. The program is engineered in such a way that it can be used by experienced and novice Qt programmers alike.

Features at a glance

It features a code editor with support for QML, C++ and ECMAscript, rapid code navigation tools, code completion, syntax highlighting, static code checking, and support for source code refactoring. In addition, it provides users with style hints as they type, context sensitive help, code folding, as well as parenthesis selection and matching modes.

The integrated C++ visual debugger is capable of displaying Qt’s data in a human readable format, thanks to its awareness of Qt classes’ structures. Additionally, it can display GNU debugger’s raw information clearly.

Another interesting feature is the integrated support for several well known version control system, including Git, Mercurial, Bazaar, Subversion, CVS and Perforce. Also, it supports the CDB (Microsoft Console Debugger). internal JavaScript debugger, LLDB (LLVM debugger) and GDB (GNU Symbolic Debugger) applications.

Under the hood and supported platforms

Being written in Qt, the application is platform-independent, supporting Linux, Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems. It has been successfully tested with both 64-bit and 32-bit instruction set architectures.

On Linux, it is distributed as native installers for the 64- and 32-bit hardware platforms, as well as a source archive that can be configure, compiled and installed on any Linux distribution.

Bottom line

All in all, the Qt Creator project is a very useful utility for existing and upcoming Qt developers who are looking for one of the best solutions to deploy modern and uncluttered user interfaces for their applications.

What's new in Qt Creator 3.4.0:

  • The C++ support in Qt Creator now has a new refactoring action that moves all function definitions out of a class declaration. We also added auto-completion for signals and slots in Qt 5 style connects. Just type the “&” and let auto-completion figure out the type of the object. Also new is a locator filter, All Included C/C++ Files, which finds all files that are used in your project by including them, even if they are not explicitly mentioned in your project. The filter is part of the default that is used when you just type in the Locator input field, and shares the shortcut string with Files in Any Project.
  • For users of the Professional or Enterprise edition we added experimental integration for Qt Test based auto tests and Qt Quick tests. It adds another navigation pane Tests, which lists the tests defined in your project, provides ways to run individual or sets of tests, and nicely shows test results in a new Test Results output pane. To try it, open Help > About Plugins (Qt Creator > About Plugins, on OS X), turn on Utilities > AutoTest, and restart Qt Creator. We also moved the Clang static analyzer integration out of experimental state. If you have at least Clang 3.6 installed, it now also supports using it with MSVC and MinGW. We also added suppression of individual diagnostics for a file, and a new page in Projects mode for managing these.
