Sample text

One of the beauties of using Qt Designer is that it allows programmers great freedom to modify their form designs without being forced to change their source code. When you develop a form purely by writing C++ code, changes to the design can be quite time-consuming. With Qt Designer, no time is lost since uic simply regenerates the source code for any forms that have changed. ui file (an XML-based file format), while custom functionality is implemented by subclassing the uic-generated class. Shape-Changing Dialogs We have seen how to create dialogs that always show the same widgets whenever they are used.

The parent parameter specifies the parent widget. The default is a null pointer, meaning that the dialog has no parent. 13 signals: 14 void findNext(const QString &str, Qt::CaseSensitivity cs); 15 void findPrevious(const QString &str, Qt::CaseSensitivity cs); The signals section declares two signals that the dialog emits when the user clicks the Find button. If the Search backward option is enabled, the dialog emits findPrevious(); otherwise, it emits findNext(). The signals keyword is actually a macro.

The Find dialog's parent†child relationships Finally, we set the title to be shown in the dialog's title bar and we set the window to have a fixed height, since there aren't any widgets in the dialog that can meaningfully occupy any extra vertical space. The QWidget::sizeHint() function returns a widget's "ideal" size. This completes the review of FindDialog's constructor. Since we used new to create the dialog's widgets and layouts, it would seem that we need to write a destructor that calls delete on each widget and layout we created.
