This project is designed for static linking.

  1. Add source code to your project.

I recommend using git submodules unless you have a better option.

  1. Enable QxtGlobalShortcut by importing provided .pri file:

In your .pro file add:

# Adding QxtGlobalShortcut
  1. Include "qxtglobalshortcut.h" and use QxtGlobalShortcut class:
#include "qxtglobalshortcut.h"


QxtGlobalShortcut myShortcut(QKeySequence("Shift+F1"));
QObject::connect(&myShortcut, SIGNAL(activated()), something, SLOT(shortcutActivated()));
