Finally, here’s the much-demanded second part to this QML beginner-focused series. Okay, one guy asked, but he sounded really interested.
I said at the end of the first article that I would progress to the next phase in this one. But the request for a screenshot of the app at this point got me to thinking that it would be worth more to fledgling QML developers if I backed up and broke down the code. So let’s do it. There’s a lot to cover, so I’ll spread it across two or three articles. Continue reading
