I just finished my first ever code in QGIS using qgis stack and google. Now I want to make its UI so that my non-programmers can use it easily. I just walk through this guide (Building a Python Plugin) but it is making plugin with external tools like Qt Creator.

I want to ask you is there any direct UI making facility available in qgis through which i can run my console code or alternative any.?

    What version of QGIS do you have installed? I've always used QT Designer for UI configuration which comes installed with Q.

    It should be located here, Designer.exe, C:\Program Files\QGIS Essen\bin

  • its Qt Designer, so it is already shifted with QT framework also. Sep 1, 2016 at 12:49
  • I second what @artwork21 has mentioned, Qt Designer is available to use to create a UI for your code.

As my comment noted you may use QT Designer (Designer.exe, C:\Program Files\QGIS versionName\bin) (which comes installed with QGIS) to edit .ui form files. Create a plugin using the plugin builder "plugin" and this will give you a template form .ui file which you may bring into Designer and edit and add your console code to the boiler .py it creates.

  • There is only Qt Designer available to develop GUI in qgis. m right Sep 2, 2016 at 4:44
