Hi Wong,

I never used Kdevelop but I made Qt programs with Developper, its integrated 
editor ( or kate for version 4) and the shell.

With Designer version 3 I first create a project  (Hello.pro)
Then I create a dialog or main form or widget and add it to the project.
Then write menus, place some stuff on the form, make connections, write some 
Ask Designer to write a main.cpp file...save all.

Finally from a shell, I cd into that dir, and type the commands:
->qmake Hello.pro		this will generate a Makefile
->make				this will "uic" your .ui file and generate .h and .cpp files 
					and also do the "mocing"  ( moc_Hello.cpp )
					compile, link and produce the executable.
That's all  ;0)

I suggest you first try to make a very simple program, look at the tutorial 
and examples, use "assistant"... before dealing with MySql.

Happy coding		Perry

P.S.   Thanks Kevin
