    1. boot up you PC
    2. Start you favorite IDE
    3. Code the application
    4. Publish.

    Do you write clean code? - if you are TDD'ing then maybe, if not, your not writing clean code.

    Daniel, you forgot two crucial steps...
    1a. login to your account
    3a. compile the application
    Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is futile.

    Please ask Qt related questions on the forum and not using private messages or visitor messages.

    Oops, sorry!
    And maybe instead of 'compile' it should 'build' since we want to link as well!

    I have no idea what "outlook messenger" is but here is how you start a dialog-style application in Qt Creator:
    • File menu, New File or Project...
    • Select Qt C++ Project, Qt GUI Application
    • Provide a name for your project and somewhere to save it
    • Select a Qt version you wish to use
    • Select QDialog as the base type


    There are a couple of instant messenger application on qt-apps.org

    it's always the same with your threads.

    you have to give us information. you have to tell us what you have tried so far. you have to post specific problems you are struggeling with.

    If you have no idea how to use Qt, a chat application might not be the perfect start...
