    Default Line edit and push button

    I am trying to get started with my school project relating to QT designer, but after going through different tutorials I still don't seem to get it. I haven't programmed with graphical user interfaces before.

    Problem is that I have a line edit box for text input and a push button. What I am trying to do is to save a text from the line edit box to a certain variable when push button is clicked. This sounds like a basic thing to me but I would appreciate if some one could give me a hint how to do this. Thanks.

    Have you looked at Signals and Slots? It a way of linking events between two objects.

    For your problem, you'll need to write a function (to activate on the pushbutton being clicked) that would do something along the lines of
    Qt Code:
    1. QString var = linedit.text();
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    Connect that with the pushbutton clicked.
