Glad, you finally got it.

Nope, the container widgets (QWidgets) contain an implicit layout, that you can find as a 
separate *property* section. The layout type is shown with the icon as well! They will come 
to life, when you e.g. generate python code from the UI with pyuic..

The layouts *below* the container widgets are the nested (explicit) layouts containing the 
widgets. For contacts, that's gridLayout, all others have nested vertical layouts 
(verticalLayout_2, verticalLayout_4, ...)
