Could anybody give me a hint how to connect the QDateEdit and the QTimeEdit widgets with a field in a QGIS layer (shp or spatialite)?

The fields in the QGIS layers are from datatype "date" (dd.MM.yyyy) and "datetime" (HH:mm). ObjectName in Qt-Designer and the layer in QGIS are equal. For some reason the connecting doesnt work and the entry in my table stays "NULL". The binding with normal LineEdits works. I tried to describe my problem here but obviously I wasn't that precise.

I'm not a programmer and until now I haven't worked with C++.

The use of Qt native widget (QDateTimeEdit) is now possible in QGIS, since QGIS 2.4.
