I am making a GUI for a script I am making, after researching I found pyqt would be helpful. I have now made a GUI with no working buttons as of yet in pyqt but wanted to look at the code.
I opened cmd.exe and typed in:
pyuic4 project.ui -o python.py
It created me a python.py script which showed me all the script I needed, however when I run it via IDLE or command prompt it shows it as running but no GUI opens up. Am I doing something wrong?
Also on a side note, is pyqt suitable to use to create a simple GUI for windows, or is it for mobile development?
Here is a snippet of code that i want to compile and run
from PyQt4 import QtCore, QtGui try: _fromUtf8 = QtCore.QString.fromUtf8 except AttributeError: def _fromUtf8(s): return s try: _encoding = QtGui.QApplication.UnicodeUTF8 def _translate(context, text, disambig): return QtGui.QApplication.translate(context, text, disambig, _encoding) except AttributeError: def _translate(context, text, disambig): return QtGui.QApplication.translate(context, text, disambig) class Ui_FileHash(object): def setupUi(self, FileHash):
Check this tutorial on how to use the generated code by the pyuic4 command;
Basically, you need to do this:
import sys from PyQt4.QtGui import QApplication, QDialog from ui_project import Ui_Name # here you need to correct the names app = QApplication(sys.argv) window = QDialog() ui = Ui_Name() ui.setupUi(window) window.show() sys.exit(app.exec_())
Pyqt is completely suitable to create GUIs on Windows.
As a notable addition, pyuic4 accepts a "-p" or "--preview" parameter which will preview the UI file by running it out of the box:
pyuic4 -p project.ui
