newbie with KDevelop


I am a new with KDevelop, and I would someone could help me out a little.
The things is that I know C++, but aren't able to make a KDE app(grapical), so here is the things I need to know:

1. When I start KDevelop, and make a new project (C++ -> KDE -> Simple Designer based KDE Application), and there you will see a small dialog with one label and one button.
How do I change the text on the button when I click on it??
I have tried with: button->setText("some text"); but that didn't work!

2. Is there a quick way to make a message box(in a similar way as in VB6: Msgbox "some text")?

3. I have used VB a lot because VC6++ does not have a good IDE, so could anyone give me some translations from VB to KDevelop.. (see question 1& 2)

4. Where do I find some good tutorials? or a place where I could download a lot of examples?

Hey Buddy its simple, even simpler then its in stupid Windows.
All you have to do is that you have to use Qt-designer with Kdevelop.
Wait a minute let me confirm that link....

just go to the website

In the website navigation bar at the left of the page there is a heading DOCUMENTATION and under that heading there is a sub heading TUTORIALS.
Click in front of tutorials, and it will show you the tutorials for Kdevelop and the first link for tutorial is
Qt Designer-3 and KDevelop-3
Just follow the link and you will learn it in maximum of 30 min.

Direct link for the tutorial is

In this tutorial you just jum to the chapter3 which is
Creating the application
and follow the instuctions.
Wish you all the best.
