View Full Version : Qt Designer or writing by hand

A small poll. Just wondering if people are using designer or writing by hand. I started using Designer for my first project, then just got used to writing gui's by hand.

For those who code the interface by hand, I was wondering what productivity gains do you have over using the Designer?

Do you use code generation or <insert tool || method || process> ?

I played with the idea of coding the interface by hand with my friend vim, but I have an issue letting go of drag and drop :).

I primarily use Qt Designer, but for small dialogs to just display a bit
of data I'll usually code it by hand, and only if QMessageBox will insufficient.
Small means 2-10 widgets and 2-5 layouts.

Almost every dialog I've written have needed some runtime adjustments based on
some other part or state of the running application.
