[solved] PySide subclassed QGraphicsItem not getting mouse events when used as module
I'm using Pyside to create an interactive subclassed QGraphicsView - containing some subclassed QGraphicsItems. It works well in its own module and receives mouse events.
But when used as a module from another file, and incorporated into another Layout - my mouse events are not being triggered. However .itemChange is working. Everything except the mouse events. I am not using tracking events such as hover. I am using mousePressEvent and mouseReleaseEvent.
I have seen c++ responses about setting "setMouseTracking" but this is for widgets and my QGraphicsItems have been added as items not widgets. So when I call this funcion it tells me it doesn't exist for items. Also that seems to be for hover type of events - which I am not needing. I believe I am subclassing properly and I pass on the events to the parent class. As I said at the start - my code works fine in a standalone file.
Any ideas what I've forgotten to do ?
The standalone - working program,
the parent program - where it stops working,
and the ui file it uses are all here (too big for this forum's guidelines):
This suggests a solution for keypress style events but not sure how to override mouse events for GraphicsItems.
Stupid error in my code where I, myself, on my own, disable my own widgets by setting inhibit_edit to True.
I need a bit of a lie down :)
