May I use MapWinGIS with Qt?

I want to create an application with MapWinGIS,can it do this?

Hello @sd1036770

I’ve not used Qt, so I can’t say for sure. But if it is able to use ActiveX controls (such as MapWinGIS.ocx), then you should be good to go. I would be suspicious since Qt is intended as a cross-platform tool, and ActiveX is pretty much a Windows-only technology. Perhaps someone else has some input here. I will try to look a little into the Qt environment.

Regards.
Jerry.

I found this link: Using ActiveX controls and COM in Qt

I know several years ago somebody wanted to use MapWinGIS with Qt as well but failed.
Then he started moving all logic of MapWinGIS to a ‘common’ dll and only use an ActiveX wrapper.
But he never finished it.

Please let us know your progress.
