You don’t have to be a code guru to develop GUIs.
Qt4 Designer is one of the most powerful GUI builders on the market. If you look at the many
Qt4 Designer tutorials, they are all very
code-heavy, which really puts off new
programmers. After some searching, I
put together a few simple methods that
make GUI development easy, even for
novice C++ programmers, and for
experts, it will speed up development.
This article shows how to use a GUI
builder based on Qt4 Designer and
Eclipse. Unlike other tutorials, this one
is not code-heavy; instead, it describes
several simple methods that will enable
you to develop a GUI in a visual manner
with a minimum of C++ code. If you are
new to C++ and GUI building, this tuto-
rial will make it possible for you to build
a GUI. If you are an expert, these meth-
ods at least will help speed your devel-
opment. The development tools must
run under the KDE desktop, although
the final program can be run on a
GNOME desktop as well.
