Xmmm...i tried what you said, the PyQt examples (examples/designer/plugins).
When I click on "Launch", a message box informs me that "This example will
start Qt Designer when you click the OK button..." but this never happens.
It also says that after that,PyQt examples are going to be found in their
own group in Qt Designer, which also never happens.

A detail: I have installed (Win XP system) latest version of PyQt only, not
QT itself.

Look at the PyQt examples in examples/designer/plugins of the PyQt 
sources. There you can see how to write plugins to use your own widget 
classes with Qt Designer.

Also take a look at the PyQt documentation:
