Do you mean a kdevelop dialog that would open up when the .ui file is
saved in Qt Designer ?
This would perhaps be possible with stdin/stdout communication. It would
need Qt Designer to send something to stdout when a file is saved (like:
"File 'filepath' saved."). Could you add it ?

Ok, so perhaps we can add it to qt-copy (if it still exists) just after
it is updated with the new release.
