(Beginner) How do I summon this dialog?
There's a fundamental concept here I'm not grasping :(
I'm trying to create a simple address book. The "add contact" button will run the appropriate function, but I can't figure out what to put in that function in order to summon the addcontact.ui I created.
I have a feeling the answer will be long, so I appreciate in advance the time you may take to answer :)
Files I have:
MainWindowImpl::MainWindowImpl( QWidget * parent, Qt::WFlags f)
: QMainWindow(parent, f)
// this function will run when the button is pressed
// this function should summon the "add client" dialog
if you want to 'summon' the dialog you have to:
- make a class wich handles the addcontact ui.
- include the header from your addcontact class.
- call it to show with : .exec or .show.
If you use creator for making your addcontact ui, just add a 'Qt designer form class' and you have it all at once.
if you make your ui in designer and later on add a handling class to it, you have to include the ui_addcontact.h manualy.
Look at "this":http://doc.qt.nokia.com/4.7/designer-manual.html for more info about using designer.
I use QDevelop and the Qt Designer and included the automatically generated "ui_addcontact.h".
The class name seems to be Ui_dialogAddContact. Could you show me an example of what the function code would look like? I can't seem to get it to compile even with the inclusion.
Thank you :)
You really should read the link i gave you, but here is a little example:
int main(int argc, char *argv)
QApplication app(argc, argv);
QDialog *dialog = new QDialog;
this will only shows your dialog, without any handling class behind it. look at your mainwindow class how to make a handling class for it. :)
You are a gentleman and a scholar.
