I have uploaded a modest collection of widgets that I have found useful to GitHub at https://github.com/MarkVTech/MarkVWidgetCollection. It includes four widgets: LEDWidget, IPAddressWidget, VerticalLabel, and NeedleGauge. Please feel free to use them as you see fit.

My Qt Creator installation on Windows 10 was having trouble with managing Subversion revisions. Creator was complaining it couldn’t find svnversion.exe, but other things had to be wrong, as it was unable to add/delete/rename SVN repo files properly. I figured the problem may be that Creator is a 32-bit application, and was unable to use SVN DLLs. I re-installed (TortoiseSVN), but since my OS is 64-bit, I had to install the 64-bit version. Then I noticed this on the download page:
Context menu in file-open/save dialogs on x64 OS
On x64 versions of Windows 7 and 8, the TortoiseSVN context menu and overlays won’t show for 32-bit applications in their file-open/save dialogs until you install the 2017 C-runtime for x86. (select the vc_redist.x86.exe file for download).
Note: this only applies to 32-bit applications on x64 OS. The Windows explorer is not affected by this.
So, I install the vc_redist.x86.exe and everything now works.
I’ve been working a project that uses Qt Charts, which is of course a great library. I created a custom widget that incorporates a QChartView. I then decided to create a designer plugin for my new widget. Unfortunately, after I installed in plugins/designer under Qt Creator’s bin directory, it failed to load, stating “The specified procedure could not be found.” Given the fact that Creator can’t or won’t show you what procedure is missing, I had to do a little debugging. I determined that the Qt Charts DLL wasn’t being found.
The solution was to copy the Qt5Charts*.dll files to the Qt Creator bin directory with Qt5Core, etc. Since Qt Creator is compiled with Visual Studio C++ (in my case MSVC 2015 32-bit), make sure you are copying from the correct bin directory in your installed Qt hierarchy.
This was Qt Creator 4.5.0, Based on Qt 5.10.0 (MSVC 2015, 32 bit)
