Get the drop event inside child widgets in a MainWindow.

  • Hello Qt Devs, I have been using Qt for 3 months but still don't sure about event handlers.
    I have a MainWindow with 10 list widgets for dropping inside and a LineEdit for counting the items inside these widgets. What I want to do is whenever an item is dropped inside the widgets, lineedit count plus 1. Can someone suggest for me a method, I tried dropEvent and eventFilter but didn't work. Thank you for reading.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    What exactly did you implement ?

    One simple way is to create a subclass and re-implement the dropEvent method and emit a signal from there. Then you connect that signal in the main window to increment your counter.
