The picture I have uploaded shows a scheduling app that we use at work. I would like to remake it in Designer with a Odoo Python backend/database. I just want to know, How to start designing it in Designer?
Hi Jonathan_Ray_Pereira and welcome to the forum.
I told you two things.
1 - if you have never use Qt Designer, you should take a look at this tutorial => https://www.learnpyqt.com/courses/qt-creator/creating-dialogs-qt-designer/.
Keep in mind that you want to make a big app and you should well take in hand the software.
2 - Before making this application, you must things at all. After, you should take a paper and make a draft and in this one specified all your widgets, your toolbars (if you want to have those),…etc…
Why ? Because you will be unable to modify them (except for minor modifications and again)
I think for an application like this you’d want to look at the Qt model views. Using this approach you have a model which acts as an interface between your data (e.g. your database backend) and the view (what is shown). The layout of that schedule that you show is basically a spreadsheet-like table, so you could use the
In Qt Designer you would be adding the (empty)
QTableView to a layout, along with the other widgets shown around it. The actual display/drawing of the schedule would be done in your code, not in Qt Designer, since it’s dynamic.
Hope that helps some?
