Yes exactly, wrong title for my problem I guess ; I will try to be more 
clear ;)

So I made a small project, added two files to it : "main.py" creating a 
"Form" instance and "form.py" defining the "Form" class, subclassed from 
a "Formbase" class that I would like to be generated from a .ui file.

I then added "formbase.ui" file to the project, defining a form named 

Now I see the "formbase.ui" file in the form browser, but I don't see no 
compile option for it in the interface or its context menu, and when I 
launch the script hitting F2, the .ui file is not compiled to produce a 
.py file.
If I generate the .py "by hand" using pyuic, it works.

Hope it makes sense, thanks for your help !
