Qt-creator : how to design the widgets to be used in the status bar ? [Solved]

  • Ok, I know how to achieve this with lines of codes, but I was looking for some convenient way to achieve this on the designer view of qt-creator.
    I mean I was looking for something like the Addsubwindow entry offered in the context menu of an mdiArea, but I cannot find the equivalent in the context menu of the statusbar.

  • I think this feature is not available in designer.

  • Ho ! Too bad !
    Thank you nevertheless, Andre for answering.

    So, now, If I still want to use designer to create the plugin, I should create a new form. (correct ?)

    But then I fail to understand how, using the qt-creator-designer signals & slots editor (I know how to achieve this with lines of codes) is it possible to connect signals from this separated widget to slots of the main window or the other way round.

  • I'd use QWidget as the base widget when designing.

    There is no way to directly connect signals and slots between different .ui files using the editor. Again: use code for that.

  • OK, it seems I am cursed today.

    Anyway... Thank you for the answers.
