Qt and Kdevelop


It has been about a month or 6 weeks since I started using Qt along with Kdevelop. Whenever I introduce some modifications in the .ui file, my header file at KDevelop stays the same without any modification.
o, for instance, if i add some layout, then, in the .cpp file I will have this layout added, and its size set, etc... and at the same time, it will give me an error saying that there is no declaration of the layout in the header.

I am quite sick of constantly re-modifying every slight change by hand. Please let me know if there is anything that can be done about it? And, how is that sort of thing called at, the overwriting and stuff.

May be I should switch to some different combination of Qt and <smthing>, but KDevelop seems to be quite powerful.

PS: And I still don't really know what does it mean "OVerwrite", "Do Not overwrite", etc messages given at the Build and Install processes.

Thanks alot.

I think it's a lot easier to use Qt Designer for the GUI, then write the back end separately. For the most part I find it best to make Qt GUI actions call extern functions, to be defined independently of the GUI. Of course, I'm not big on IDEs in the first place.

Normally I'll design the GUI based on both what the internals need from the user and what the user needs overall, then I'll design a complete extern interface to wire the GUI to the back end. That makes the GUI 100% superficial, which is how I think it should be. Once that's done, I'll only modify the GUI for aesthetic purposes or to change things I forgot to take into account while designing the back end.
