Help with GUI layout creation

  • Hi,

    I am new to this (mostly programmed console apps) and totally lacking design skills. I understand about horizontal, and vertical and grid layout, yet I feel uncapable of solving a simple design, for my task.

    This is the look of my window I would like to create:

    alt text

    I have no clue how to pull it together?
    What should I use for this? Vertical or horizontal layout? More layers?

    For starters, I would say 2 vertical layouts on top of 3 horizontal layouts?

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    A QMainWindow with e.g. one QDockWidget for the search part and the rest as central layout would be a start. You would only need one QVBoxLayout per group of widget.

    Hope it helps.

  • Google images for QDockWidgets tells me this is it! Thank you mister!!
