Setting a signal to signal connection with QtDesigner



  • Hello,

    Using Qt Creator, I wish to connect a widget signal to another widget signal. How can I do that ?
    It seems I cannot do it from the Qt Designer tool itself. I therefore tried to modify myself the .ui file as shown below, with no success either:

    <connection>
    <sender>m_disableWarningCheckBox</sender>
    <signal>toggled(bool)</signal>
    <receiver>MyDialog</receiver>
    <signal>DisplayWarningToggled(bool)</signal>
    </connection>

    The generated ui_File.h is not connecting the check box signal to the dialog signal.

    Is it a feature missing in .ui files ? Or did I misunderstood something ?
    Thank you.

    It looks like it is not possible to connect a signal to a signal in the designer. You will need to do this in your code. But I would not do this in ui file! Because next time you use the designer it will be overwritten!
