Creating Component Instances
Qt Design Studio comes with preset components that you can use in your UI by creating instances of them.
To create component instances and edit their properties:
- Drag-and-drop components from Library (1) to Navigator (2), Form Editor (3), or 3D Editor (4). This creates instances of the components in the current component file.
- Select component instances in Navigator to edit the values of their properties in Properties.
For more information, see Specifying Component Properties.
- To change the appearance and behavior of the component instances in ways that are not supported in Qt Design Studio by default, you can define custom properties in Connection View > Properties.
For more information, see Specifying Dynamic Properties.
- To enable users to interact with the component instances, connect the instances to signals in Connection View > Connections. For example, you can specify what happens when a component instance is clicked. For more information, see Connecting Components to Signals.
- To dynamically change the behavior of a component instance when another component instance changes, create bindings between them in Connection View > Bindings. For more information, see Adding Bindings Between Properties.
- Add states to apply sets of changes to the property values of one or several component instances in the States view. For more information, see Adding States.
- Animate the properties of component instances in the Timeline view. For more information, see Creating Timeline Animations.
