Creator button grouping

  • I am trying to develop an app in Qt Creator right now and I am having trouble with a signal. I have a Dial that I want to control a group of push buttons. Basically the idea would be as the dial turns, it selects the appropriate button, but I am having trouble setting up the signal and slot to do this. I'm not sure how to group these buttons, and possibly it is because I am doing this through the GUI in Creator and not by had coding it. Any ideas?

    There's no need to write everything by hand, however the slot implementation (i.e. selection of the button in your case), you'll have to write yourself.

  • So I am assuming that I need to declare what I want in the header file and implement the connection in the mainwindow.cpp file? My C++ is rusty but it looks like I write it like a normal class, and instantiate it in the .cpp

    You should then take a look at the Creator Using Qt Designer doc to get on the right track.
