[Solved] Custom QGraphicsItem paint problem

  • Hello!

    I have a class that inherits QGraphicsItem and QObject:
    @class Foo: public QObject, public QGraphicsItem

    I have set up a QTimer, and connects its timeout signal with QGraphicsScene's advance.

    I want to display 2 constantly shifting QPixmap on a Foo instance when it is shown:
    @void Foo::paint(QPainter *painter, const QStyleOptionGraphicsItem *option, QWidget *widget)
    painter->drawPixmap(bodyRect, animate?pic1:pic2); // animate is a boolean variable.
    if(animate) animate = false;
    else animate = true;
    e.g., imagine a character walking animation with left foot pixmap and right foot pixmap.

    My problem is, the result shown is not as what i have expected.
    it looks like pic1 is drawn above pic2 or vice versa.
    ( pic1 and pic2 is a .png file, supports transparent background. does that have any effect :? )

    is it impossible to make this, via paint function re-implementation?
    (i'm doing this for learning purposes)

    Thanks for your help and attention!

  • Solved! I used update() in a separate function/ slot.

    Thank you! :)
