No, that's input from you, not output from Creator. Creator did not 
create that code.

Output from creator and designer are .ui files, the .cpp/.h files output 
by moc or rcc, etc.

If you wrote the code, it's your output, not Creator's. Just because you 
feed it to Creator doesn't mean it created it.
