You should never try to alter the generated code. If a subclass is
really needed you should create a new widget class and use the promoting
feature to have code generated that uses your new widget. See the
designer documentation for how that works.


So now I am wondering should I try designing the whole thing with the designer and promote any subclasses items I have to code?
If so, does anyone know of a step-by-step tutorial dealing with this? I am needing to start out with two tree views that I can drag and drop between.
I am currently using subclasses of QTreeView.

I have started looking at the documentation on promoting widgets, but it could take me awhile to wrap my head around that.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
