[SOLVED] Add custom QWidget to designer without a separate project

  • I saw the article about creating custom QWidgets to be used in the designer:

    I'm already using a promoted QWidget placeholder which works fine for runtime, but I want to know if it's possible to have my QWidget subclass correctly shown in the designer. Meaning, if my QWidget has a grid layout with several lineEdits, I want to actually see that rather than an empty QWidget.

    Also, I'd like to be able to do that without creating a separate project just for that QWidget.

    Appreciate any advice!

    AFAIK, you need to make a plugin for designer to have that. You can however have that plugin as a subproject of your project so you don't have to create a whole new.

    Hope it helps

  • Hmm I guess for the specific situation I have it's not worth it. But good to know.

    Thank you!
