    Default Source code to *.ui

    Hi

    Is there any possibility to convert source code(generated from qt designer) to *.ui file? I m asking because I overwrote my ui file and i didn't find any backups... But I found ui_file.h which contains generated from qt designer source code. I want to continue my project so is there any possibility to convert this file back to *.ui or I have to rebuild my ui form again?

    Best regards

    Is there any possibility to convert source code(generated from qt designer) to *.ui file?
    No, since designer does not generate source code, but ui files!

    But I found ui_file.h which contains generated from qt designer source code.
    the ui_file.h IS the source code generate from the ui file!
    so is there any possibility to convert this file back to *.ui
    No.

    Do you write clean code? - if you are TDD'ing then maybe, if not, your not writing clean code.

    .ui file is basically xml, so I guess you can write a generator for that. Anyway, it should be faster to design the ui again, based on the widget in your app (you can still use this ui_file.h to display ui in the app).

    You don't need the .ui to make changes to your app anyway, you can just make them in code.

    It would be possible to write a flakey script to translate the generated code back to .ui, but it would be easier and quicker to just redesign the ui.

    And next time MAKE BACKUPS!

    I have a backup of every change I've made to all of my projects, so I can always revert overwritten files, deleted files and any other changes. Lookup 'version control' then install something like Subversion or GIT.
