Qt Creator or Direct Modification of UI Files?

• Apr 12, 2018 - 14:05

As someone new to Qt development and MuseScore, is it best that I modify UI components using Qt Creator, or should I modify the .h and XML files directly?

I'm using Xcode 9.3 on MacOS 10.13.4.


You mean the .ui files? Use QtCreator. Doing this manually is just way to error prone. Don't do anything to the .h files that go along with the .ui files, those get generated by the build process.

Do you have any advice regarding workflow? Is it best to just import the .ui files into QtCreator, as needed, and then copy the resulting files into the original directories, overwriting the original files? I still prefer to use Xcode, where possible.

Thank you, btw, for you time and expertise.
