I've been prompted to look at improving pyuic's support for custom widgets.
At the moment, if you use a custom widget, pyuic will generate the following
at the start of the module...
from modname import widgetname
...where "widgetname" is the class name of the custom widget - no problem
there. "modname" is the value entered in the Headerfile field of the Edit
Custom Widgets dialog with the .h extension removed. While this works, I'm
told it isn't particularly useful. It also makes dubious assumptions about
how custom widgets have been packaged into modules and make it less easy to
satisfy both uic and pyuic.
I propose to remove this behaviour.
A more generic, think about it for 2 minutes, solution is to allow Python code
to be embedded in the Comment field of the Form Settings dialog. Any line
beginning with "Python:" will be copied to the generated module. This is then
Before I go ahead and implement this, does anybody have any better
suggestions? Or additional things that could be done for common cases (like
support for PyKDE widgets).
