[PyQt] Designer, mutiple main windows, lions, and tigers. Oh, my!
Hello PyQt gurus,
I have a fairly simple question. Using designer I have created a mainwindow with a menu bar plus four additional interactive form windows. I have the slots defined and the classes created to display the form windows.
I am able to display the main window and interact with the menu but am stumped on how to
- save the current display
- bring up my data entry form
- return back to the saved display once the form has been submitted.
I have looked at ~20 different examples and none do quite what I am attempting to do. If anyone has advice or a pointer to sample code please let me know.
I am running Python 2.7, PtQt 4, and Designer 4.8.0.
As a follow-up. When I call the second main window it causes two windows to be displayed - one over the top of the other. What I want is the content of the new window to appear inside the working area of the main window.
Should I be using a widget rather than a second main window?
After digging around more I suspect I need to set centralwidget to the new window object to keep everything in the same main window context.
Advice still welcome ;-)
