View Full Version : More widgets | more control over the forms?

(I couldn't post in the 'Feedback' forum, so here goes this post.)

I think QT (Desktop development) needs more widgets.
By widgets i mean the default UI controls. One control in particular is this one: 7137
- on a second notice, it may already be implemented.

Although, it would be great if we could actually have more 'control' over our controls, such as the
capability to hide a control, and via code make it '->show()'. Or, the capability to change the border of the MainWindow, without having to paste code in.

Just my thoughts.

Some attention would be great.

All that you say of is already supported with Qt.

- You can hide widget using ->hide()
- You can change MainWinodw (any widget's border to that case) border. If you looking to change from Designer, you may need to write a custom mainwindow and plug it into Designer.
- If you are looking for more widgets, did you visit Qt Apps (http://qt-apps.org/)

Indeed, the 'SpinControl' does exist. I should have checked better.
However, i still maintain that it would be great to have the capability of changing controls via the control panel.
As mentioned, such controls could be 'hide', "Style", and so on.

On a different subject, it seems as if this forum is 'dead', apart from your own post, ofcourse.
