Associating .ui file extension with external program, ie: designer-qt4


In File->Settings->Editor->File Types, "Qt UI Designer Form" is associated with "*.ui". Great. How do I associate "Qt UI Designer Form" with a binary and launch an external tool whenever a file is double clicked in the Project panel that has the extension "*.ui", ie: "/usr/bin/designer-qt4 $1" where $1 is the name of the file in the Project panel? Thank you.

You need to add the appropriate binary in File | Settings | Tools | External Tools, after that right click on *.ui file in the Project tool window and select External Tools > this binary.
