This is a discussion on Tweaking the cvs apps - KDE ; Is there any way to get the GUI (e.g. .ui) files for the applications in the KDE CVS? Where they even developed with .ui, and it was subsequently removed from the cvs version, or the GUI was coded in manually?...

Thread: Tweaking the cvs apps

  1. Tweaking the cvs apps

    Is there any way to get the GUI (e.g. .ui) files for the applications in
    the KDE CVS? Where they even developed with .ui, and it was
    subsequently removed from the cvs version, or the GUI was coded in manually?

    Many dialogs are manually coded. *.ui files are still available for some
    (parts of) dialogs. Just visit http://webcvs.kde.org, there you can find
    some *.ui files.

    Thanks! I hope I'll be get over the first quirks of kde development
    soon, and start coding at a real pace instead of this excruciating crawl
    :P I have to say the IDE gives me lots and lots of trouble after many
    years working with visual studio, but it will get better with practice
    (or maybe with the next version! One more question that I didn't
    find in the web: I'm trying to use layouts in qt designer, but they keep
    shrinking my widgets to nonexistance. For example a have a simple
    dialog: a listview on the left, a qlabel on the right (used for bitmap
    showing), both widgets have the same height. Below them, some buttons.
    Putting the buttons in a horizontal layout works fine. However when I
    put the listview and the label in a horizontal layout, they become
    really small and move on the top left corner of the screen. If I resize
    the layout, they become of the same size. I would like them both to
    shrink and expand when I resize the dialog, but I want to keep their
    proportion intact; or at least keep the listview's width fixed, and just
    expand the label. How can I do that?

    If there's a better newsgroup for this kind of questions please direct
    me there.
    Thanks.

    You should lay out the dialog itself too. Click on some empty space in the
    form and lay it out vertically. The widgets will fill the dialog.
    To give a widget a fixed size, you should check it's properties. Experiment
    some with the geometry and the sizepolicy properties of a widget.
