How to disable screensaver on Qt Android App

edit: I forgot to mention that I use Qt Creator.

You need to ad "QT += androidextras" to the .pro file

#include <QtAndroidExtras/QAndroidJniEnvironment>
#include <QtAndroidExtras/QtAndroidExtras>

QAndroidJniObject activity = QAndroidJniObject::callStaticObjectMethod("org/qtproject/qt5/android/QtNative", "activity", "()Landroid/app/Activity;");
if (activity.isValid()) {
    QAndroidJniObject window = activity.callObjectMethod("getWindow", "()Landroid/view/Window;");
    if (window.isValid()) {
        const int FLAG_KEEP_SCREEN_ON = 128;

//Clear any possible pending exceptions.
QAndroidJniEnvironment env;
