    What are you doing ?
    What errors do you get ?

  • hi,

    QList<QGraphicsItem> list;

    in the code it doesn't show any error, but in the compiler it says
    "ivalid abstract return type 'QGraphicsItem'"

    Should that not be
    QList<QGraphicsItem *>
    so its a list of pointers to QGraphicsItem's
    also the scene has such list already. (just in case)

  • QList will call follow code to create object:

    template <typename T>
    Q_INLINE_TEMPLATE void QList<T>::node_construct(Node *n, const T &t)
        if (QTypeInfo<T>::isLarge || QTypeInfo<T>::isStatic) n->v = new T(t);
        else if (QTypeInfo<T>::isComplex) new (n) T(t);
    #if (defined(__GNUC__) || defined(__INTEL_COMPILER) || defined(__IBMCPP__)) && !defined(__OPTIMIZE__)
        // This violates pointer aliasing rules, but it is known to be safe (and silent)
        // in unoptimized GCC builds (-fno-strict-aliasing). The other compilers which
        // set the same define are assumed to be safe.
        else *reinterpret_cast<T*>(n) = t;
        // This is always safe, but penaltizes unoptimized builds a lot.
        else ::memcpy(n, static_cast<const void *>(&t), sizeof(T));

    But QGraphicsItem is a abstract class, See, boundingRect(), paint(), that causes compilation to failed.
