"quickly design" Widget, does it exist?
I'm a bit of a noob to QT designer but I like what I have seen so far. I'm following this tutorial but I am confused by one of the instructions.
The tutorial instructs to pull a number of widgets onto the main window as , which is fine, except for one of them it names as "quickly design" (see attached image) which isn't in the list of widgets. The instruction seems to me a bit ambiguous. Can anyone clarify what I am supposed to do?
Hi and welcome to Qt user forum
No there is nothing of the Desktop Widgets that are named like that
Only thing that sounds like that is QML
Do you have link to tut ?
Maybe its more clear from text than the table ?
Filename could be LineEdit
output format could be combo box with format options
imageLabel1/2 sounds like a label where we use the
pixmap property to set an image to the QLabel.
Yes, here is the link to the full tutorial:
Disclaimer: I am Python noob :)
Ok some of it is known. like
"we have created two labels on the form called imageLabel1 and imageLabel2. "
So those are QLabels.
Then there is
outputFormat = str(self.ui.outputFormat.text())
which is the "outputFormat" and it seems like a text control.
QPlainTextEdit will do.
also inputFile = str(self.ui.fileName.text())
which also seems a QPlainTextEdit
This based on the use of text() to get the text. Normally it might be
toPlainText() ( in c++) but the Python bindings might not be 1-1 ?
It could be wrong. ( as in I guess wrongly :)
ok, thanks mrjj, i'll give that a go,
