Important: Please read the Qt Code of Conduct -

Ancient Qt used; want to upgrade and use Qt Creator wat do?

  • got a project with around 50 files, the previous devs were not using Qt creator, and I'm not exactly that familiar with 'manual Qt' outside of the Creator. it is extremely difficult to make any ui changes since they spread it through the code.

    I'm not sure what to do tbh. Thoughts, suggestions, mockery?

  • Moderators

    • learn "manual Qt", it is a very useful skill
    • just open the project in Qt Creator (it is using qmake/ cmake, right?) and see how it works. Qt is source compatible between versions, and Qt Creator can handle all Qt4 and Qt5 projects, so it should work fine
    • 50 files does not sound like much. If you really want/ need to, you can probably refactor the project to make it work as you like with QtC
