Hi I have a single project which contains the main app and a custom widget. How do i add the custom widget to the main app's ui file graphically? i don't know how to make the designer recognize the custom widget.

promotion (the easy one, you won't see any graphical difference between your custom widget and the parent one, cause it "promises" you only the fact that setupUi method will create a widget of your custom type, and not the original one). In this case, just right-click on your widget, promote it, give your .h header file and the type of your custom widget.
writing a component for Qt designer (the long one). In this case, refer to Qt documentation, just look for "Creating Custom Widgets for Qt Designer" in Qt Assistant, or have a look to this example: "Custom Widget Plugin Example":http://doc.trolltech.com/4.6/designer-customwidgetplugin.html
