Developing GUI

GUIs for SAMSON and SAMSON Extensions are done using Qt 6.5.2.

Qt provides you with a lot of modules. Due to their licenses, not every Qt module can be used in a SAMSON Extension that you want to distribute via SAMSON Connect. For example, Qt modules with GPL licenses cannot be used in SAMSON.

If you plan to have a GUI in your SAMSON Extension, you can check out the Qt Documentation.

SAMSON Extension generator creates Qt forms for classes where they can be necessary. For working with Qt forms we advice using QtCreator (see QtCreator manual), which should have been installed during the installation of Qt.

Please refer to the tutorials page to learn how to develop SAMSON Extension with GUI.

Good practices

Non-GUI functionalities, if possible, should be placed in non-GUI classes: SAMSON Extension's GUI should be used only to interact with users (e.g. receive data, commands, show results). Example: data processing, computations should not be placed in GUI-related classes, but rather in a specific classes (e.g. App).
