How can I include a form created in Designer in my QGIS plugin?

And how to get controls values (textbox,label,etc)?


1 Answer 1

One approach is to load the .ui file dynamically:

    # load the form
    path = os.path.dirname( os.path.abspath( __file__ ) )
    self.optionsDialog = uic.loadUi(os.path.join(path,"options.ui"))

    # restore some options

    # show dialog

You can have a look at the corresponding full source code here: https://github.com/anitagraser/TimeManager/blob/master/timemanagerguicontrol.py

Thank you! I was able to download the form, but I do not understand how can I assign, for example, a textBrowser value? –  Cathrin Jun 21 '12 at 10:01
As posted in the example above: There most likely is a .setValue() function. You have to assign names to the UI parts in Designer, like "spinBoxFrameLength" in the example. –  underdark Jun 22 '12 at 6:41
I can not find where the assigned value "spinBoxFrameLength". <<self.optionsDialog.spinBoxFrameLength.setValue(animationFrameLength) >> is it? what value it takes in this case? –  Cathrin Jun 22 '12 at 6:46
I have an error occurs. swears at "setValue" . << AttributeError: 'QTextBrowser' object has no attribute 'setValue' >> –  Cathrin Jun 22 '12 at 6:52
QTextBrowser has a setDocument() function. If you want to write plugins you will have to learn to use the Qt documentation doc.qt.nokia.com/4.7-snapshot/qtextbrowser.html –  underdark Jun 22 '12 at 7:51
