Issue with using 'promote to' in QtDesigner with PyQt5
I've created a object called ImageViewer that inherits from QStackedImage. I wanted to use the 'promote to' function in QtDesigner to change my current QStackedImage to a ImageViewer object. I was a little confused about it asking for a header file in python for a while but eventually I figured it out. It imported correctly and even created a .pyc file which means it imported and compiled it correctly. The problem arises in my code when I try to set up the UI. A snippet is shown below.
qtCreatorFile = "EITDaq2.ui"
Ui_MainWindow, QtBaseClass = uic.loadUiType(qtCreatorFile)
class DAQView(QtWidgets.QMainWindow, Ui_MainWindow):
def __init__(self, model): # qt required window init stuff (from double inheritance) QtWidgets.QMainWindow.__init__(self) Ui_MainWindow.__init__(self) self.setupUi(self)
On the command 'self.setupUi(self)' I get the error:
self.setupUi(self) File "<string>", line 257, in setupUi TypeError: __init__() takes exactly 1 argument (2 given)
It seems like I'm passing it 1 parameter but maybe when I promote the new ImageViewer object into the ui file it makes it into a sister widget to the main window instead of a child widget so it's like passing in two parameters to the ui builder. I've checked all over the forum and haven't found anything. Much appreciation for any insight.
