Strange autoclicking of qpushbutton



  • I've been trying to learn c++ and qt framework by doing a point of sale software project.my main window has couple of tabs and with in one tab i have a qpushbutton which open a newpurchase dialog which takes input from user to record a new purchase from supplier.this newpurchase dialog has a lineedit which, when recieves product barcode from a barcode reader ,triggers another quanity dialog which, user can use to enter the quantity of the product. but when i click ok on the button box of the quantity dialog instead of closing just the quantity dialog ,it closes the newpurchase dialog as well.i debugged the qt application and it shows that a qpushbutton (which saves and closes the newpurchase dialog)on the newpuchase dialog gets triggered automatically.additionally this behaviour is only spotted when quantity dialog is triggered through the barcode lineedit,i have another lineedit which accepts description of the product and triggers the same quantity dialog ,but clicking ok button when quantity dialog is triggered through description lineedit does not closes the newpurchase dialog or trigger the qpushbutton which saves and closes the newpurchase dialog.im attaching the screen shots of the dialog and code for the dialogs

    on mainwindow.cpp

    void MainWindow::on_pushButton_clicked()
    {
       newpurchase mypurchase;
       connect(&mypurchase,SIGNAL(purchase_added()),this,SLOT(update_view()));
       mypurchase.exec();

  • @jerin-johnson said in Strange autoclicking of qpushbutton:

    i debugged the qt application and it shows that a qpushbutton (which saves and closes the newpurchase dialog)on the newpuchase dialog gets triggered automatically.additionally this behaviour is only spotted when quantity dialog is triggered through the barcode lineedit

    The only way this could happen is, that your button has default or autoDefault property set. So you Enter inside your dialog to accept your inputs, but it also triggers your default button which apparently saves and closes your dialog.

  • @Pl45m4 thanks you so much ,autodefault was set.any idea how this property get set by default?.i recently moved from windows to ubuntu.



  • @jerin-johnson

    This property's default is true for buttons that have a QDialog parent; otherwise it defaults to false.
    
    

    https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qpushbutton.html#autoDefault-prop

    Your buttonBox is a child of your QDialog, so it must be true. You can disable it manually, but then you can't accept your dialog by pressing enter anymore. But it seems that you don't need this anyway.
