Looking for example to learn combination of "text" and "form / ui" design



  • Judging from recent experience examples included in QT Creator are not the best for the beginner. During my previous life, when I started with Qt I struggled with managing "text development" and "GUI / ui development" together.
    That was few years back and I like to avoid same problems again.
    If I recall - there is a relationship between adding components using standard text methods and doing same in form / graphical design.

    I am asking this forum - does anybody have a suggestion WHICH example woudl be the best to learn from .

    The samples descriptions do not lend itself to identify if it is "text sample" or "GUI /form sample " or both .

    Thanks

    Are you talking about the difference between QtDesigner (the .ui XML type files created with Designer) and actual C++ code?

    In most cases it's a combination of both... Some things are easier to create by using the Designer GUI, but some things just can not be done in designer... You have to use C++ code then to make them or to change a specific setting.
    For simple GUIs, you can do almost everything in design mode, by dragging the buttons, layouts and labels to their destination. Afterwards you go to your code and setup their behavior etc.. (What happens, if you click QPushButton XY)

    Depends on what exactly you want to learn :)
