How to change the import path of qrc module in Qt Designer



  • Im looking for a way to change the import path of the qrc module in the pyuic generated python file.

    An example pyuic generated python code from a ui file:

        from PyQt5 import QtCore, QtGui, QtWidgets
        
        class Ui_MainWindow(object):
            def setupUi(self, MainWindow):
                MainWindow.setObjectName("MainWindow")
                MainWindow.resize(249, 103)
                self.centralwidget = QtWidgets.QWidget(MainWindow)
                self.centralwidget.setObjectName("centralwidget")
                self.horizontalLayout = QtWidgets.QHBoxLayout(self.centralwidget)
                self.horizontalLayout.setObjectName("horizontalLayout")
                self.pushButton = QtWidgets.QPushButton(self.centralwidget)
                self.pushButton.setText("")
                icon = QtGui.QIcon()
                icon.addPixmap(QtGui.QPixmap(":/gui_icons/res/play.png"), QtGui.QIcon.Normal, QtGui.QIcon.Off)
                self.pushButton.setIcon(icon)
                self.pushButton.setIconSize(QtCore.QSize(32, 32))
                self.pushButton.setObjectName("pushButton")
                self.horizontalLayout.addWidget(self.pushButton)
                MainWindow.setCentralWidget(self.centralwidget)
        
                self.retranslateUi(MainWindow)
                QtCore.QMetaObject.connectSlotsByName(MainWindow)
        
            def retranslateUi(self, MainWindow):
                _translate = QtCore.QCoreApplication.translate
                MainWindow.setWindowTitle(_translate("MainWindow", "MainWindow"))
        import icons_mw_rc
    

    I want to change icons_mw_rc import path to another location to better organize my source files [Example: import qrc_res.icons_mw_rc]. Is there a way to do that using the qt designer without manually modifying the pyuic generated src file.



  • pyuic has a couple of options, among them there is one called --from-imports that might solve your issue.
