    Default Applying the horizontal and vertical layouts ensures that the application UI scales

    I'm newbie with some programming experience. I downloaded QTCreator 2.0.1 on a Ubuntu box. I'm doing the tutorial "Creating a Qt C++ Application" from the from the QT Creator Documentation.

    I've created my label, LineEditor and TextBox, Applied both the Vertical and Horizontal Layout as explained on the tutorial, When I compile and execute the program. I drag to increase the main box, The widgets I created don't scale (stretch) like I expected them to.

    I'm doing something wrong.

    Show some code... or attach a little sample that replicate the problem you have.

    Also are you creating the layouts with Designer or code?
    If you use the Designer apply a layout by selecting the "form" in the "background" of the QLabel, QLineEdit and other QWidgets.
    If you are creating with code make sure that the layout is properly parented, i meant that you have a QWidget to act as a "form" and this is the parent to layout and this will be the widget you show()...

    My guess is that you either didn't set the layout for the window or you didn't add your objects to the layout.

    Thanks for you quick answer. I was using the Designer. It now works. I selected the Form and I applied the layout to the form.

    Thanks
