Hi! I want to create a node for a package supported by a GUI. I read something about create it as a rqt plugin but I don't like so much this idea. I think it can be a little limiting and I'd prefer to create my custom GUI in c++ (using qt-creator). However I don't find any tutorials that can help me. Any suggestions?

Just a note: rqt == qt but with ROS infra behind / next to it. Creating a gui in Qt Creator designer and loading the .ui file should be perfectly possible.

I'm not saying you have to do it this way, but I wanted to clarify it.

Thanks @gvdhoorn for the clarification. But I don't want to create a rqt plugin. What I need is a tutorial (or also the main steps) to create a ros GUI in qt-creator and to build It.

I read tutorial about GUI nodes in book Learning Robotics using Python. They use qt_creator. But using Python, not C++
