How to change the QToolButton opacity when the cursor is on int?



  • I have created a button and set a text and icon to it. By using CSS, I have decreased the button background color and the text opacity and increased them when the cursor is on the button (hover in CSS). As far as I know, It's not possible to set opacity for the icon using CSS, so that I have used QPainter to set the opacity to my icon. I have two problems:
    1: the opacity is not set to my icon (when I run the program, I get my default icon ).
    2: how can I change the opacity of my icon when the cursor is on it?
    I would appreciate if someone could help me.

    Here is my code:

    QToolButton *butt= new QToolButton(this);
        butt->setFixedSize(widthW/2.5,heightW/2.5);
        int width_button_EM = butt->frameGeometry().width();
        int height_buttin_EM = butt->frameGeometry().height();
        butt->setGeometry(widthW*50/100,heightW*20/100,width_button_EM,height_buttin_EM);
    
    
    
        butt->setObjectName("butt-name");
        butt->setStyleSheet(
        "QToolButton#butt-name {"
        "background-color: rgba( 90, 233, 240, 20%);"
         "color:rgba(38, 12, 12, 20%); "
                    "}"
    
        "QToolButton#butt-name {"
            "border:5px solid #303030;"
            "border-width: 3px;"
            " }"
        " QToolButton#butt-name {"
            "  border-radius: 0px;"
            " }"
        " QToolButton#butt-name:hover {"
            "background-color: rgba( 90, 233, 240, 100%);"
             "color:rgba(38, 12, 12, 100%); "
            " }"
    
        "QToolButton#butt-name {"
            "padding-left:5px; padding-right:5px; padding-bottom:5px;  padding-top:5px;"
           "}"
            );
    
    
    
    
        QImage image;
        image.load("F:/qt codes/eqatuapp/animation/EqProjectFS/2-2");
    
        image = image.convertToFormat(QImage::Format_ARGB32);
    
        QPainter painter(&image);
        painter.setOpacity(0.5);
    
        QPixmap pixmap = QPixmap::fromImage(image);
        QIcon icon(pixmap);
        butt->setIcon(icon);
        butt->setIconSize(QSize(widthW/2,heightW/3.3));
        butt->setText("my book");
        butt->setToolButtonStyle(Qt::ToolButtonTextUnderIcon);
        butt->setCursor(Qt::PointingHandCursor);
    
    

    Here is the output:

    UPDATE:
    I found out how to change the opacity of the whole button (the background, the icon and also the text), by using QGraphicsOpacityEffect. Now my problem is how to change the opacity of the button when a cursor is on it. Is there a specific signal for it?
    Here is my updated code:

     QImage image;
        image.load("F:/qt codes/eqatuapp/animation/EqProjectFS/2-2");
    
        image = image.convertToFormat(QImage::Format_ARGB32);
    
        QPainter painter(&image);
        painter.setOpacity(0.5);
    
        QPixmap pixmap = QPixmap::fromImage(image);
        QIcon icon(pixmap);
        butt->setIcon(icon);
        butt->setIconSize(QSize(widthW/2,heightW/3.3));
        butt->setText("my book");
        butt->setToolButtonStyle(Qt::ToolButtonTextUnderIcon);
        butt->setCursor(Qt::PointingHandCursor);
    
    
        QGraphicsOpacityEffect *effect = new QGraphicsOpacityEffect(this);
        effect->setOpacity(0.5);
        butt->setGraphicsEffect(effect);
    
    

    the output:

    No signals, but events.

  • @Pl45m4 Thank you for reply. I set setAttribute(Qt::WA_Hover, true) to my button and then Implemented Dialog::enterEvent(QEvent * event), but I can't get the result I want.
    Here is my updated code:

    dialog.h:

      #ifndef DIALOG_H
      #define DIALOG_H
    
      #include <QDialog>
      #include <QToolButton>

    public:
         explicit Dialog(QWidget *parent = 0);
        ~Dialog();
         QToolButton *butt;
         QGraphicsOpacityEffect *effect;
    
    private:
        Ui::Dialog *ui;
    
    protected:
          void enterEvent(QEvent * event);
    };
    
    #endif // DIALOG_H
    

    dialog.cpp:

    butt= new QToolButton(this);
    butt->setFixedSize(widthW/2.5,heightW/2.5);
    int width_button_EM = butt->frameGeometry().width();

    butt->setGeometry(widthW*50/100,heightW*20/100,width_button_EM,height_buttin_EM);
    
    
    
    butt->setObjectName("butt-name");
    butt->setStyleSheet(

         effect->setOpacity(1);

    I would appreciate if you could help me in this matter.



  • @nanor

    Not QDialog's enter event, QToolButton's.
    Then you can install an eventFilter to handle the mouse enter / leave events and apply the opacity effect (that's how I would do it and have done with a custom widget before).
    In addition, I think, you also need to enable mouse tracking on your widget (your QToolButton), in order to track the mouse movement, even when there is no real action like mouse clicks happening.

    Add this to your Dialog.h

    protected:
        bool eventFilter(QObject *obj, QEvent *event) override;
    

    then re-implement it just about like this:

    bool Dialog::eventFilter(QObject *obj, QEvent *event)
    {
        if(obj == YOUR_BUTTON)
        {
            if(event->type() == QEvent::Enter)
            {
                // SET YOUR OPACITY
            }
            else if(event->type() == QEvent::Leave)
            {
               // SET OPACITY BACK TO NORMAL
            }
            return true;
        }
        else
        {
            return QDialog::eventFilter(obj, event);
        }
    }
    

    Don't forget:
    (put this in your cpp file, in your dialog constructor)

       // enable mouse tracking
       YOUR_BUTTON->setMouseTracking(true);
       // Install event filter on your button
       YOUR_BUTTON->installEventFilter(this); // this = your dialog
    

    You can also add animation effects to make it look smooth. Otherwise you get some 2-state behavior, instant opaque when the mouse left the button and your pre-set value, as soon as it enters again.

    QPropertyAnimation *animation = new QPropertyAnimation(effect, "opacity");
        animation->setDuration(1000); // duration time in msecs
        animation->setStartValue(1); // 1 to fadeOut, start with 0.5 (or some X<1) to fadeIn
        animation->setEndValue(0.5); // change end value with start value
        animation->setEasingCurve(QEasingCurve::InQuart); // OutQuart for fadeOut
        animation->start(QPropertyAnimation::DeleteWhenStopped);
    

    This can be called here, for example:

    if(event->type() == QEvent::Enter)
    {
    // SET YOUR OPACITY
    }
    else if(event->type() == QEvent::Leave)
    {
    // SET OPACITY BACK TO NORMAL
    }

    This belongs in your dialog.cpp. If this does not help, also #include <QEvent> .

    ... and remove or comment your Dialog::EnterEvent. It will always fire, when you move your mouse over your dialog.

    BTW: butt is a hilarious name for a button :D



  • @Pl45m4 I added #include<QEvent> to both dialog.h and dialog.cpp files and commented the part:

    void Dialog::enterEvent(QEvent * event)
    {
    
        QToolButton::enterEvent(event);
        effect->setOpacity(1);

  • @nanor

    Not in both. Only in your header is enough. Your cpp already includes your header file.

    And you didn't move the implemention from your header to your code file.

    Only this

    bool eventFilter(QObject *obj, QEvent *event) override;
    

    should stay in your header.

    What to put where, is general OOP / C++ knowledge ;-)



  • @Pl45m4 I'm really sorry , if I understood correctly, I have to remove the line void enterEvent(QEvent * event); from my header file?



  • @nanor said in How to change the QToolButton opacity when the cursor is on int?:

    remove the line void enterEvent(QEvent * event);

    Or comment it to test if my code works for you. You dont need a QDialog::EnterEvent. AND move the eventFilter implementation to your cpp. The errors should be gone now.



  • @Pl45m4 I commented the line void enterEvent(QEvent * event); in the header file and added bool eventFilter(QObject *obj, QEvent *event) override; to the cpp file, after ui->setupUi(this);
    in the constructor, but I get this errer:

  • @nanor

    AHHHHHH.

    No :)

    This (bool eventFilter(QObject *obj, QEvent *event) override;) is not the implementation.

    HEADER (Dialog.h)

    protected:
       bool eventFilter(QObject *obj, QEvent *event) override;
    

    DIALOG.CPP

    bool Dialog::eventFilter(QObject *obj, QEvent *event)
    {
        if(obj == YOUR_BUTTON)
        {
            if(event->type() == QEvent::Enter)
            {
                // SET YOUR OPACITY
            }
            else if(event->type() == QEvent::Leave)
            {
               // SET OPACITY BACK TO NORMAL
            }
            return true;

  • @nanor

    I assume you still have the Dialog::eventFilter implementation in your header file?!
    (Because it says, that you are re-defining it in your cpp).

    If not, try a "Clean" followed by "Build" or "Rebuild" and "Run QMake".



  • @Pl45m4 Oh sorry. I have thought you mean the protected part of the header file.
    My header file now is:

    #ifndef DIALOG_H
    #define DIALOG_H
    
    #include <QDialog>
    #include <QToolButton>
    #include <QGraphicsOpacityEffect>

    But the output is only an empty dialog window without button and button icon.

  • @nanor

    How is your button set to your dialog and where?

    QDesktopWidget is deprecated and shouldn't be used anymore. All in all, you picked the wrong approach. Better apply some QLayout (horizontal or vertical) to your QDialog and then add your button.



  • @Pl45m4 Actually I have used QDesktopWidget, because I want to set the geometry based on my screen width and height.

    When I comment the part:

    bool Dialog::eventFilter(QObject *obj, QEvent *event)
        {
            if(obj == butt)
            {
                if(event->type() == QEvent::Enter)
                {
    
                    effect->setOpacity(1);
                    butt->setGraphicsEffect(effect);
                }
                else if(event->type() == QEvent::Leave)
                {
    
                    effect->setOpacity(0.5);
                    butt->setGraphicsEffect(effect);
    
                }
                return true;
            }
            else
            {
                return QDialog::eventFilter(obj, event);
            }
        }
    

    from my cpp file , and the part:

    protected:
        bool eventFilter(QObject *obj, QEvent *event) override;
    

    from my header file, I got the following output:

    asd.png

    And when I don't comment those parts, I got an empty dialog window.



  • @nanor said in How to change the QToolButton opacity when the cursor is on int?:

    I want to set the geometry based on my screen width and height

    QScreen is the alternative / replacement.
    https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qscreen.html

    Your button is floating around / just drawn on your widget (dialog).

    It is always better to use layouts unless there is any reason to not, which I dont see in your case :)

    dialog.cpp (after butt->setCursor(Qt::PointingHandCursor);)

    QVBoxLayout *layout = new QVBoxLayout;
    layout->addWidget(butt);
    setLayout(layout);
    


  • @Pl45m4 I added the layout and now my cpp file is:

    #include "dialog.h"
    #include "ui_dialog.h"
    #include <QDesktopWidget>
    #include <QIcon>
    #include <QPixmap>

        /*QDesktopWidget wid;
        int screenWidth = wid.screen()->width();
        int screenHeight = wid.screen()->height();
    
        this->setFixedSize(screenWidth/2.5,screenHeight/1.5);
    
        int widthW = this->frameGeometry().width();
        int heightW = this->frameGeometry().height();
        qDebug() << widthW;
        qDebug() << heightW;
        this->setGeometry((screenWidth/2)-(widthW/2),(screenHeight/2)-(heightW/2),widthW,heightW);
    
        
        butt->setFixedSize(widthW/2.5,heightW/2.5);
        int width_button_EM = butt->frameGeometry().width();
        int height_buttin_EM = butt->frameGeometry().height();
        butt->setGeometry(widthW*50/100,heightW*20/100,width_button_EM,height_buttin_EM);*/
    
    
        butt= new QToolButton(this);
        butt->setObjectName("butt-name");
        butt->setStyleSheet(
    
        "QToolButton#butt-name {"
            "border:5px solid #303030;"
            "border-width: 3px;"
            " }"

           "}"
            );
    
    
    
    
        QImage image;
        image.load("F:/qt codes/opacity4/2-2");
    
        image = image.convertToFormat(QImage::Format_ARGB32);
    
        QPainter painter(&image);
        painter.setOpacity(0.5);
    
        QPixmap pixmap = QPixmap::fromImage(image);
        QIcon icon(pixmap);
        butt->setIcon(icon);
       // butt->setIconSize(QSize(widthW/2,heightW/3.3));
        butt->setIconSize(QSize(100,200));
        butt->setText("my book");

        butt->setCursor(Qt::PointingHandCursor);
    
    
        effect = new QGraphicsOpacityEffect(this);
        effect->setOpacity(0.5);
        butt->setGraphicsEffect(effect);
    
        //butt->setAttribute(Qt::WA_Hover, true);
        butt->setMouseTracking(true);
        butt->installEventFilter(this);
    
        QVBoxLayout *layout = new QVBoxLayout;
        layout->addWidget(butt);
        setLayout(layout);
    
    
    
    }
    
    Dialog::~Dialog()
    {
        delete ui;
    }
    
    
    bool Dialog::eventFilter(QObject *obj, QEvent *event)
        {
            if(obj == butt)
            {
                if(event->type() == QEvent::Enter)
                {
    
                    effect->setOpacity(1);
                    butt->setGraphicsEffect(effect);
                }
                else if(event->type() == QEvent::Leave)
                {
    
                    effect->setOpacity(0.5);
                    butt->setGraphicsEffect(effect);
    
                }
                return true;
            }
            else
            {
                return QDialog::eventFilter(obj, event);
            }
        }
    
    
    

    Again, when I don't comment the eventfilter parts, the output is an empty dialog window and when I comment those parts, I got:

    vboxxx.png

    The reason I use QDesktopWidget is that I want to have my program exe file and then use the program in different computers with different widths and heights, so I have to set geometry to my elements based on the screen geometry.



  • @Pl45m4 Hi. Finally I succeed! I changed the protected part of my header file to:

    protected:
    bool eventFilter(QObject *obj, QEvent *event){
             if(obj == butt)
              {
                 if(event->type() == QEvent::Enter)
                 {
                     effect->setOpacity(1);
                     butt->setGraphicsEffect(effect);
                 }
                 else if(event->type() == QEvent::Leave)
                  {
                     effect->setOpacity(0.5);
                     butt->setGraphicsEffect(effect);
                  }
         }
    
         }
    
    

    and clear the bool part from the cpp file and my code worked fine.
    Thank you so much for the code you provided yesterday. Really appreciate your help .
    Best regards.



  • @nanor

    I dont see any difference, since the code is the same and you can put your defintions / implementation in your header, but normally you put them in your code (cpp) file. You find getters / setters defined in header file very often. So I dont know what was going on before :) It should work with the code in your cpp file as well.

    @nanor said in How to change the QToolButton opacity when the cursor is on int?:

    The reason I use QDesktopWidget is that I want to have my program exe file and then use the program in different computers with different widths and heights, so I have to set geometry to my elements based on the screen geometry.

    There is nothing wrong with it. I also didn't say, you shouldn't do it, but there will be one day, they remove QDesktopWidget completely. It's already kept because of compatibilty reasons. With QScreen you can do the same and it will stay in Qt Framework for a longer time than QDesktopWidget.
    But you really should consider using layouts (you can set a fixed geometry as well as min / max sizes).



  • @Pl45m4 I didn't know about QScreen and I thought that the only way to use my device screen geometry is using QDesktopWidget. I will change it to QScreen .
    About layouts, also I didn't know that I can set size for them :)
    Thank you for valuable points you mentioned. I will definitely use them in my project.
