What: 	Qt Designer (Graphic User Interface Toolkit)
Who:	Robert Anderson
Where:	UNH Morse Hall Room 301, Durham, NH
Day:	Monday 12 June 2006
Time:	7pm to 9pm

The Qt graphics toolkit from Trolltech comes with an impressive design tool 
called QtDesigner. This tool allows you to design and test a Graphical User 
Interfaces (GUI), as well as make modifications after the back end code has 
been created. Qt is a C++ toolkit, but there are hooks for other languages as 
well. Python, Perl and Ruby all have Qt Application Programmer Interfaces 
(API) and can use QtDesigner generated code for both Qt version 3 and 4.

During the meeting we will use QtDesigner to:

  1. Create a couple Graphical User Interfaces (GUI)

  2. Show in Python and C++ how to get them up on the screen and 
     start generating the backend code required to make them functional.

  3. Go back and change the GUI as a demonstration of how well this tool 
     really works.

Web Links to example code will be provided for further exploration.
