The only possibility is #1. The 'uics' command line tool will create C# source 
files from .ui files. You also don't need to fire up Qt Creator for designing 
UI's. The stand-alone app "designer" does the same.

Qt Designer, as stated above.

It's a plugin for MonoDevelop, which automatically updates C# source files 
from the .ui files. But it's unmaintained and horribly broken.
