Qt Test

Qt Test provides classes for unit testing Qt applications and libraries. All public methods are in the QTest namespace. In addition, the QSignalSpy class provides easy introspection for Qt's signals and slots, and the QAbstractItemModelTester allows for non-destructive testing of item models.

Getting Started

To enable Qt Test in a project, add this directive into the C++ files:

#include <QtTest>

To link against Qt Test, add this line to the project file:

QT += testlib
