Overview

This article is a basic QWidget application which performs HTTP GET and POST for a user specified URL.

This is a very basic article this can be extended to suite the developers need. Note that it can only be used in portrait mode - it does not scale properly when rotated.

Prerequisite

capability required

  • NetworkServices

UI design (.ui file)

The below screenshot shows the ui design file.
