:( Works over here.

You should make sure the slots are not "ambigious" in the number of
parameters they take. For example the QPushButton::clicked() signal
comes in 2 forms, one with a parameter, one without. For these you have
to decorate the slot with the information about the signal, see:


how to do that.

Huh? Thats not "the right way", you do not write code into the generated
files, you create a new subclass from QWidget (or QDialog, QMainWindow)
and the Ui_Dialog and then in __init__() you call self.setupUi(self).

connectSlotsByName traverses the slots of "self" to find those that
match a given object-signal combination.


Be careful!  Is it classified?
