    Default What is the connection between Qt and designer?

    Well, I'm posting in the newbie section, ain't I?

    Sorry if this seems really obvious to most of you...

    The obvious link is that both Qt tutorials and designer tutorials come from
    Trolltech. What I mean is, if I do the Qt tutorial and write a widget, can I then
    include it in the designer? How?

    Designer is a Qt tool to design Qt user interfaces. So the proper answer is that Qt Designer is part of Qt

    Yes. Instructions here: http://doc.trolltech.com/3.3/designer-manual-7.html

    You can use "Tools -> Custom -> Edit Custom Widgets..." in the Qt Designer or write a widget plugin.

    Thank you both. I just had a look at Tools -> Custom -> Edit Custom Widgets
    but I hadn't any idea what I was supposed to write in all the <new something>...

    I'll go back to it later, it's nice to know it's there. Now I'll be a good girl and
    try doing one more exercise of the tutorial
