How to get another process window handle using qt
I am trying to get the window handle of the mstsc window using qt.
In win32 I can do it using win32 api HWND hMSTSCWindow = FindWindow(L"TSSHELLWND", NULL);
is there something similar exist in qt, same stuff I would like to try in Linux as well, there I will be looking for XRDP window handle
"QWidget::winId() ":/doc/qt-4.8/qwidget.html#winId could be what you need.
I'm not sure that QWidget::winId() is useable in his case. He want non-application window.
eg. for embedding firefox into qt app, so I guess that he need direct calls to X11.
In that case, there is no Qt method to retrieve the id. One will have to resort to platform dependent code.
ok if this is the case then I can write a code for separate plattform.
But is it possible to make my qt application window as a child of another win32/X11 application.
Actually I wanted to move my qt application in mstsc window.
I have seen a method in QWidget named as setParent(QWidget *). But even I use plattform specific code to get the window id, can we make qt application as a child of this using qt api only?
Currently I hace achieved this using plattform specific code as setParent under windows , it works well but I am looking for qt way to do this.
No Qt does not have such ability. You have to do it on your own for each platform separatelly (but it's possible).
Is your problem solved ?
Thanks for your suggestion, I wrote code for windows and it works well,
I am able to move my qtApp as a child of mstsc, yet to give a try for X11 system.
I was just browsing thru and came to this question.
Although it seems that Ashish's problem is solved - still I think you all would be interested in going thru this link about the QxtWindowSystem Class:
I hope I've added a useful link to the discussion.
