[WIP] Equivalent of QTabWidget with tabs on left and horizontal text

  • I am using a QTabWidget to put all the GUI for my application settings, and the number of tabs is growing as time passes.
    It's come to a point where the number of tabs makes it unreadable.

    My first idea was to try to put the tabs on the right side (say West) but keep the text horizontal. After a few google searches, I found out that it is impossible (and also that I am not the only one trying to do that).
    Another request is to be able to insert and manage this modified tabwidget from designer.

    So I looked at "containerextension":http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-4.8/designer-containerextension.html and try to build a Designer plugin from that.
    My code is available here: "assembla":http://www.assembla.com/code/extendedtabwidget/subversion/nodes

    I have thre problems right now:

    • -Clicking on a QPushButton does not work in Designer (only in preview) but the QComboBox is working fine. Why?.-
    • Changing current page does not update the QIcon path in the widget properties view but tab title is working.
    • Button's text and icon are shown in Designer, but not in my application

    Any help will be much appreciated!

    [edit] interactive QComboBox was related to objectnaming ('__qt__passive_xxxxxxxx')


  • Fixed a few issues but I'm still struggling at getting icons to be saved correctly.
    Anyone who want to help me?
