UI not updated after clean & rebuild



  • Hi,

    I am using QT Creator 2.3.1 to modify GUI of an old QT project.
    Using UI Property Editor, I tried to change a checkbox from "not checked" to "checked" by default. Then "clean all" and "build all". But the setting does not change, the checkbox is still unchecked. The mainwindow.ui file has re-generated correct XML
    But the output GUI is incorrect. Is that something wrong with auto-generated moc_mainwindow.cpp? What is the correct step i should follow to update the GUI successfully?

  • First of all I don't think that reporting all the compile output could help in this case.
    However on the right side of the UI editor you have a property editor, scroll it until you find the "checked" property and mark it as true. Of course having the checkbox selected in the form. It worked fine for me.
    Now things I will look if it does not work:

    having an instance of the application still running that prevents the modification of the file

    having some code that interferes with the checkbox, such as @ui->checkbox->setChecked( false );@ somewhere else in your application

    having selected the wrong checkbox in the form editor
