Detailed Description

The QtScript module only provides core scripting facilities; the QtScriptTools module provides additional Qt Script-related components that application developers may find useful.

To include the definitions of the module's classes, use the following directive:

 #include <QtScript>

To link against the module, add this line to your qmake .pro file:

 QT += script

For detailed information on how to make your application scriptable with QtScript, see Making Applications Scriptable.
