Adding in vertical bar
I have a canvas with a set size. The amount of widgets that I would like to add to the canvas will exceed the size that the canvas can hold.
I was thinking that I could implement a scrolling feature where there would be a vertical side bar and the user scrolls with the sidebar to gain access to the other widgets. I have been exploring Qt for this feature but I haven't found anything yet.
Does any know if I can do this with Qt?
Are you thinking about something like QScrollArea ?
That looks like a possibility. Looking at the description, I can only associate 1 widget to the scroll area. Can I still use the QScrollArea with multiple widgets? Or is there a widget that groups multiple widgets into 1?
You can add as many widgets to the scroll area as you want.
You just add it as children to the first widget using a layout.
so the one you set via setWidget is the main widget but it can contain any
number of other widgets and the scroll area will handle the scrolling.
