           Summary: xmlgui should be more usable
           Product: kdevelop
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Compiled Sources
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kdevelop-devel at kdevelop.org
        ReportedBy: tnagy at eleve.emn.fr

Version:           gideon alpha 5 (using KDE KDE 3.1.91)
Installed from:    Compiled From Sources
Compiler:          gcc 3.3.1 
OS:          Linux

Using the projectui.rc files in a project template is really nice feature, since it enables the developper to create the menus from a description file.

However, to test an application using ui.rc files, it is necessary to install it, otherwise the menus don't appear and critical features can be hidden.

It can be acceptable for the pixmaps or the translations, but it is a lot more annoying for the menus.

It would then be very interesting to compile the data from the ui.rc file into the program itself, in case if the ui.rc file is not found. In addition, it could accelerate the startup time of the application ;-)
