Navigation from login form to main window.. any help?
I want to navigate to main window from a login window after clicking a form.
I am able to do it using Signal() and Slot() but for the particular form.
To make it more clear, I wanna go from one window to another. A click should hide that window and show another (Already created form). I am able to hide that window using signal and slot as mentioned in reference docs, but I want an another form to open after hiding of previous form.
any help over this?
One way to achieve your task is to do the following because I followed this.
- From the main.cpp go directly to the form of your main application (lets say mainappwindow.cpp)
- Before the ui->setup(Ui) line, call your login window.
- Now your login window must be a QDialog with public members to retrieve your data. (A QDialog will execute first).
4.Now back in your mainappwindow.cpp constructor retrieve the data and use it for further processing.
but can you explain 1st and 2nd step in more details?
I am pretty new to Qt programming, It may be the reason I need some more explanation.
