       uic - Qt user interface compiler


       uic [options] file


       This page documents the User Interface Compiler for the Qt GUI toolkit.
       The uic reads a user interface definition (.ui) file in XML  as  gener-
       ated  by  Qt  Designer  and  creates corresponding C++ header or source
       files. It also generates an image file that embeds raw  image  data  in
       C++ source code.

       Generate declaration:
            uic  [options]  <file>

       Generate implementation:
            uic  [options] -impl <headerfile> <file>
               <headerfile>:    name of the declaration file

       Generate image collection:
            uic  [options] -embed <project> <image1> <image2> <image3> ...
               <project>:       project name
               <image[1..n]>:   image files

       For  convenience,  uic  can also generate declaration or implementation
       stubs for subclasses.

       Generate subclass declaration:
            uic   [options]  -subdecl   <subclassname>   <baseclassheaderfile>
               <subclassname>:     name of the subclass to generate
               <baseclassheaderfile>:    declaration file of the baseclass

       Generate subclass implementation:
            uic  [options] -subimpl <subclassname> <subclassheaderfile> <file>
               <subclassname>:     name of the subclass to generate
               <subclassheaderfile>:    declaration file of the subclass


       -o file
              Write output to file rather than to stdout.

       -nofwd Omit forward declarations of custom  classes  in  the  generated
              header file. This is necessary if typedef classes are used.

       -tr func
              Use func() instead of tr() for internationalization.

              Display the version of uic and exit.


       uic is almost always invoked by make(1), rather than by hand.

       Here are useful makefile rules if you only use GNU make:

           %.h: %.ui
                   uic $< -o $@
           %.cpp: %.ui
                   uic -impl $*.h $< -o $@

       If you want to write portably, you can use individual rules of the fol-
       lowing form:

           NAME.h: NAME.ui
                   uic $< -o $@
           NAME.cpp: NAME.ui
                   uic -impl $*.h $< -o $@

       You must also remember to add NAME.cpp to your SOURCES (substitute your
       favorite name) variable and NAME.o to your OBJECTS variable.

       (While  we  prefer  to  name our C++ source files .cpp, the uic doesn’t
       care, so you can use .C, .cc, .CC, .cxx or even .c++ if you prefer.)
