designer-qt4 - Visual user interface designer for Qt4.
Qt Designer simplifies the process of designing and creating graphical user
interfaces (GUI) using the award-winning Qt toolkit. Qt Designer is easy to
learn. There are tutorials, walkthrough examples and the reference
documentation accelerating you through the learning phase. After that, Qt
Designer greatly reduces the time and effort needed to develop even the most
complex dialogs with an easy-to-use GUI and an integrated help system.
Qt Designer provides a rich set of features aimed at making the creation of
dialogs as easy and smooth as possible without reducing the power of Qt. It
offers all the strength of the Qt layout system with a well-designed user
interface. This, combined with the Qt Designer's undo/redo system makes it
simple to try different arrangements of the widgets until the result satisfies
Using Qt Designer's convenient property editor along with the dynamic Qt
property system it is easy to set the initial state of your widgets. Special
editors for some widgets (like listboxes, comboboxes, etc.) allow you to fill
these widgets with content without writing any code. Using the object
hierarchy view, the parent-child relationship between the widgets of a dialog
can be understood at a glance.
Integrating dialogs into a Qt project is straightforward thanks to the User
Interface Compiler (UIC), which generates C++ code from the XML dialog
description on the fly. The programmer can easily extend the functionality of
the generated classes by subclassing without touching generated code at all or
running the risk of loosing their changes.
