[PyQt] uic.loadUi() and custom widgets

I was curious if there was a way for a tool to have its Ui generated
from a .ui file but still use custom widgets?

I have a widget I wrote that inherits the QLineEdit widget in which I
needed to modify the event() method so that a custom property will be
modified if the backspace key was pressed

I was able to get everything to work properly, in a simple dialog where
I defined the layout within the __init__() method, however for more
complex dialog windows I'd like to keep the ability to modify the layout
within the designer and just swap out the which ever widget is supposed
to be the custom one, that way the __init__() method remains tidy and
less lines of code.


Is there any straight forward ways to do this?
