    Background applications

    Hi.

    My application, a GPS/Location logger, interracts with user only at configuration time.
    The rest of the time, my application is silent, and just records the locations.


    My idea is to :

    1/ Send the app to background at start-up.

    How can you do that ?

    2a/ Disable the icon in application switcher (so you really don't see the application running foreground)

    2b/ Draw some little icon/indicator on main screen (Homescreen).
    The user can then click on this indicator to send the application to foreground (for adjusting settings)

    Is that possible ?

    Thanks

    Re: Background applications

    Sending application to background is as strait forward as described in that article (As mentioned by mrudulpen).

    However disabling app icon seems bit difficult, because all resource files in Qt application are generated by QMake and you can not modify it. You can try by adding following line your .pro file.

    Code:
    TEMPLATE = app
    CONFIG += no_icon
    This lines will not generates registration file, so it might help you.
