were not removed early enough. Parent objects were not deleted along
with their children.

same table for each layer. One connection
would clean up the contents,

Latest commit 7e53f3d Apr 10, 2019


ArcGIS Runtime SDK 100.5 for Qt sample applications. The repo contains Qt projects for each sample that can be run from within the Qt Creator IDE.


  • Qt SDK 5.12.0 or higher (Open source or commercial)
  • Qt Creator
  • For more information, please visit the System Requirements page.

Fork the repo

If you haven't already, fork the repo.

Clone the repo

Command line Git

Clone the ArcGIS Qt SDK Samples

Open your terminal, navigate to your working directory, use git clone to get a copy of the repo.

# Clone your fork of the repository into the current directory in terminal
$ git clone

Configure remote upstream for your fork

To sync changes you make in a fork with this repository, you must configure a remote that points to the upstream repository in Git.

  • Open a terminal (Mac users) or command prompt (Windows & Linux users)
  • List the current configured remote repository for your fork
$ git remote -v
origin (fetch)
origin (push)
  • Specify a new remote upstream repository
$ git remote add upstream
  • Verify the new upstream repository
$ git remote -v

origin (fetch)
origin (push)
upstream (fetch)
upstream (push)

Sync your fork

Once you have set up a remote upstream you can keep your fork up to date with our samples repository by syncing your fork.

  • Open a terminal (Mac users) or command prompt (Windows & Linux users)
  • Change to the current working directory of your local repository
  • Fetch the branches and commits from the upstream repository. Commits to master will be stored in a local branch, upstream/master.
$ git fetch upstream
  • Check out your forks local master branch
$ git checkout master
  • Merge changes from upstream/master into your local master branch which syncs your forks master branch with our samples repository.
$ git merge upstream/master

Open a sample project file in Qt Creator

Start Qt Creator. When the IDE opens to the Welcome screen, click on the Open Project button and browse to a project file (.pro) within your forked repo location. Configure the project and run the sample.

Use a previous version

The master branch contains samples for the current, most up-to-date version of ArcGIS Runtime. To access previous versions, you can checkout by a tag or commit, or alternativley you can download the source zip:

Use offline data in the samples

Some of the samples consume offline data, including TPKs, VTPKs, mobile geodatabases, and mobile map packages, among other data formats. If the sample does consume offline data, the sample's associated will note where you can download the data (from ArcGIS Online), and where the data can be placed once downloaded. For example, it may say something like:

Link Local Location
Los Angeles Vector Tile Package <userhome>/ArcGIS/Runtime/Data/vtpk/LosAngeles.vtpk

In this case, you would download the VTPK from the ArcGIS Online Location, and place in specified location. <userhome> is used throughout to denote a generic location on the different platforms. The below table specifies where this is on all of the supported platforms:

Platform Userhome Location Example Location
Windows %userprofile% C:\Users\Bob\ArcGIS\Runtime\Data
Linux ~ /users/bob/ArcGIS/Runtime/Data
Mac OS X ~ /Users/Bob/ArcGIS/Runtime/Data
Android /sdcard /sdcard/ArcGIS/Runtime/Data
iOS <your app bundle> <appbundle>/ArcGIS/Runtime/Data
