NAMEuic - Qt user interface compiler
SYNOPSISuic [options] file
DESCRIPTIONThis page documents the User Interface Compiler for the Qt GUI toolkit. The uic reads a user interface definition (.ui) file in XML as generated by Qt Designer and creates corresponding C++ header or source files. It also generates an image file that embeds raw image data in C++ source code. Generate declaration: uic [options] <file> Generate implementation: uic [options] -impl <headerfile> <file> <headerfile>: name of the declaration file Generate image collection: uic [options] -embed <project> <image1> <image2> <image3> ... <project>: project name <image[1..n]>: image files For convenience, uic can also generate declaration or implementation stubs for subclasses. Generate subclass declaration: uic [options] -subdecl <subclassname> <baseclassheaderfile> <file> <subclassname>: name of the subclass to generate <baseclassheaderfile>: declaration file of the baseclass Generate subclass implementation: uic [options] -subimpl <subclassname> <subclassheaderfile> <file> <subclassname>: name of the subclass to generate <subclassheaderfile>: declaration file of the subclass
GENERAL OPTIONS-o file Write output to file rather than to stdout. -nofwd Omit forward declarations of custom classes in the generated header file. This is necessary if typedef classes are used. -tr func Use func() instead of tr() for internationalization. -version Display the version of uic and exit.
USAGEuic is almost always invoked by make(1), rather than by hand. Here are useful makefile rules if you only use GNU make: %.h: %.ui uic $< -o $@ %.cpp: %.ui uic -impl $*.h $< -o $@ If you want to write portably, you can use individual rules of the following form: NAME.h: NAME.ui uic $< -o $@ NAME.cpp: NAME.ui uic -impl $*.h $< -o $@ You must also remember to add NAME.cpp to your SOURCES (substitute your favorite name) variable and NAME.o to your OBJECTS variable. (While we prefer to name our C++ source files .cpp, the uic doesn't care, so you can use .C, .cc, .CC, .cxx or even .c++ if you prefer.)
