    Question Qt Creator plugin: how to add a new tab to the Qt Creator tab?


    I'm building a plugin for Qt Creator.

    I was able to successfully create the basic Qt Creator plugin as explained in and see my plugin added to the Tools menu.

    Now, I want to add a new tab in the vertical tab widget containing “Welcome”, “Design”, “Debug”, “Projects”, “Analyze” and “Help”.
    As shown in the attached image by the letter N, the new tab should be after "Help". Also the page associated to that tab should occupy the entire screen.

    Any idea will be very much appreciated.

    Subclassing Core::IMode?

    Default Re: Qt Creator plugin: how to add a new tab to the Qt Creator tab?

    All plugins in Qt Creator are based on providing implementations of interfaces provided by other plugins. So if you want to add an object to an existing element in Qt Creator then find implementation of another object that is placed in that element and base your implementation on that.
    Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is futile.

    Please ask Qt related questions on the forum and not using private messages or visitor messages.
