Adding Form Files to Projects

You can start Qt Designer from Qt VS Tools by double-clicking a .ui file. For more information about using Qt Designer, see the Qt Designer Manual.

To add a new .ui file to the project, select Project > Add Qt Class > Installed > Visual C++ > Qt > Qt GUI Class.

Typically, you need to wrap the code generated for the form file into a QWidget subclass to add signals or slots to it. Therefore, Qt VS Tools create a .h and .cpp file for you, along with an empty UI form.
