Running Qt Designer with Python pyqtgraph

Here are more notes on how to get this powerful combo running with a GUI builder including a powerful plot. This can be done


Running Qt Designer
When you pyqt, it is installed as well but you will find it in a strange spot

find /Users -name Designer*

found in /Users/quantlabsnet/Qt/5.5/clang_64/bin/

Convert .ui file to .py with
pyuic4 -x testDesigner.ui -o

To use pyqtgraph ‘element’, follow!msg/pyqtgraph/31cqr43cvCA/K8aCYomRrBYJ
and another approach

The VideoSpeedTest and ScatterPlotSpeedTest examples in pyqtgraph both use .ui files that were compiled using the tools/ script (which just calls pyuic4

Note that there is also exampleLoaderTemplate.ui and
but pyside package is needed

pip install -U PySide

You may need cmake: brew install cmake

About caustic

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at
