Develop an application like QtDesigner
I am new to Qt and am trying to develop an application like Qt Designer or Qt creator.
Should i be using MdiArea for this? My feeling is that perhaps not. But in QtDesigner the background is complete gray which happens only with MdiArea(unless i do some setting or something). So i am not sure if i should use MdiArea?
I want to have 2 windows on the left that are splitters and then like in QtDesigner have a central tab based widget and then on the right side again have 2 windows that are splitters. Also the left side, right side and central should be splitters. Can anyone suggest the correct way to do this?
- Qt Creator does not use an MDI area
- take a look at the palette and discover its wonderful world of colors
- have a look at QSplitter and QTabWidget or QStackedWidget
- have a look at Qt Creator's sources
