Qt Designer expands the options available to programmers by providing a visual design capability. Qt Designer can be used to develop all or just some of an application's forms. Forms that are created using Qt Designer end up as C++ code, so Qt Designer can be used with a conventional tool chain and imposes no special requirements on the compiler.
