I want to add
QChart to the form. But I can’t find it in the Widget Box. So I created it in the code. How can I insert it in
QFrame or something else?
I want to set area of that widget in QtDesigner.
Option 1: Promoted
I suppose you mean inserting a QChartView, because QChartView inherits from QGraphicsView, this would be a good option, for this we do the following:
- first add
QT += chartsin the .pro
- place the QGraphicsView to the design.
- Right click on the QGraphicsView and select
- When doing the above, a menu appears, in the menu it should be set in
Promoted Class Name, and
Header file, then press the
addbutton and finally press
Screenshots of some steps:
The same could be done using
QWidget as a base instead of
Why is one or another widget chosen as a base?
It is chosen because Qt Designer through moc establishes certain properties by default, and if the widget does not have that method then it will not compile. as all widgets inherit from QWidget this would be the basis for any new widget to promote it in Qt Designer.
In the following link you will find an example.
Option 2: QtChart plugin
Another option would be to compile the
QtChart plugin for
QtDesigner, for it you must download the 5 files from the following link:
Then you execute the following:
qmake make sudo make install
At the end you can access
QtCharts::QChartView in Qt Designer
