What's the best method to create a GUI similar to Qt Designer's Property Editor?

  • We are creating a new level editor for my company and need to implement a property editor similar to the one that Qt Designer has- where there are clickable headers to expand/collapse a section of properties. I may only want the grid to show when a header is expanded though.

    Was this done using a QTreeView with QTableWidgets as the tree item delegates? Or should I use a QTableWidget and implement my own multiple header class (to do the expand/collapse handling)?

    I looked through the forums already and didn't see anything similar to what I'm looking for.

    Thanks in advance for the advice.

    There are several examples of property editors on "qt-apps":http://qt-apps.org/

    use property as search string and will have plenty examples.

    EDIT : the Qt Designer sources are available to look into too....

  • Thanks, Eddy.

    Looks like maybe QtPropertyBrowser from QtSolutions archive might be what I'm looking for. We are using the Qt commercial license so this would be safe to use, I'm assuming. BTW- is that the source for Qt Designer's property editor?

    No I don't think so. Afaik Qt Designer existed before Qt Solutions. But I'm not sure. You could check it easily by comparing the sources.
