Qt Sensors - QML example

QtSensors - QML example demonstrates the QML sensors types in the QtSensors 5 import.

Qt Sensors in QML

To write a QML application that will use the QML sensors types in the QtSensors 5 import you need to to the following steps:

Import the QtSensors 5.x declarative plugin:

 import QtSensors 5.0

Add the Sensor QML types into your qml file.

In this example we use the TiltSensor :

 TiltSensor {
     id: tilt
     active: false

The Tilt-, AmbientLight- and the Proximity QML sensor types have the 'enabled' property in common. To start or stop the sensor set this property to true or false.

 tilt.active = (tiltStart.text === "Start");

Reading the data can be done for each sensor type like following:


 text: "X Rotation: " + (tilt.reading ? tilt.reading.xRotation.toFixed(2) + "°" : "Unknown")
 text: "Y Rotation: " + (tilt.reading ? tilt.reading.yRotation.toFixed(2) + "°" : "Unknown")


 onReadingChanged: {
     if (reading.lightLevel == AmbientLightReading.Dark)
         ambientlighttext.text = "Ambient light: Dark";
     else if (reading.lightLevel == AmbientLightReading.Twilight)
         ambientlighttext.text = "Ambient light: Twilight";
     else if (reading.lightLevel == AmbientLightReading.Light)
         ambientlighttext.text = "Ambient light: Light";
     else if (reading.lightLevel == AmbientLightReading.Bright)
         ambientlighttext.text = "Ambient light: Bright";
     else if (reading.lightLevel == AmbientLightReading.Sunny)
         ambientlighttext.text = "Ambient light: Sunny";
         ambientlighttext.text = "Ambient light: Unknown";


 text: "Proximity: " +
       (proxi.active ? (proxi.reading.near ? "Near" : "Far") : "Unknown")
