View Full Version : System Error when running loadUi()

9th March 2011, 15:11
I'm pretty new to Qt, Python and their combinations. I'm currently writing a QGIS plugin in python (I used QtCreator 2.1 (Qt Designer 4.7) to generate a .ui-file and am now trying to use it for a Quantum GIS plugin that's written in Python 2.5 (and running in the Quantum GIS Python 2.5 console)).
I am running into trouble when loading the ui-file dynamically when the program runs the loadUi() function. The error occurs outside my script. Does that mean, I'm passing something wrong into it? Where does the error come in? Any hints on what could be wrong?

# Set up the user interface from Designer
code_dir = os.path.dirname(os.path.abspath(__file__))
self.ui = loadUi(os.path.join(code_dir, "Ui_myfile.ui"), self)

Traceback (most recent call last):
