I have a form that appears when you start the plugin.How do I properly apply to the button on the form, so that when you click on the button performed "function".

import sys,os
import win32api
from PyQt4.QtCore import *
from PyQt4.QtGui import *
from qgis.core import *
import ctypes
from PyQt4 import uic

class HelloWorld:
   def __init__(self, iface):  
      self.iface = iface
      self.canvas = iface.mapCanvas()

   def initGui(self):  
      self.action = QAction(QIcon(":/plugins/"), "&HelloWorld", self.iface.mainWindow())
      self.action.setWhatsThis("Configuration for test plugin")
      self.action.setStatusTip("This is status tip")
      QObject.connect(self.action, SIGNAL("activated()"), self.hello_world)      
      QObject.connect(pushButton, SIGNAL("clicked()"),self.function)

      self.iface.addPluginToMenu("HelloWorld", self.action)   

   def unload(self):    

   def function(self):
      QMessageBox.information(self.iface.mainWindow(), QCoreApplication.translate('HelloWorld', "HelloWorld"), QCoreApplication.translate('HelloWorld', "HelloWorld"))

   def hello_world(self):      
      path = os.path.dirname( os.path.abspath( __file__ ) )
      self.optionsDialog = uic.loadUi(os.path.join(path,"untitled.ui"))

if __name__ == "__main__":

Your pushButton variable isn't on the form. You need to add it to your untitled.ui using QtDesigner – Nathan W May 13 '13 at 7:55
I have it there has already been added. it did so. the only question is how to appeal to a button on this form? – Cathrin May 13 '13 at 8:44

If you want to access the button on the form you can just do:

  self.optionsDialog = uic.loadUi(os.path.join(path,"untitled.ui"))

pushButton is the objectName of the QPushButton.

This part of the code should be in the "def hello_world(self)"? – Cathrin May 13 '13 at 8:52
yes inside hello_world() – Nathan W May 13 '13 at 8:53
In "def initGui(self):" No need to change anything ? – Cathrin May 13 '13 at 8:54
well you don't need pushButton=QPushButton("pushButton") or QObject.connect(pushButton, SIGNAL("clicked()"),self.function) in there. – Nathan W May 13 '13 at 8:55
and that, instead, I need to use? – Cathrin May 13 '13 at 9:00
