Making multiple windows on browser
Hey, so im new to Qt and I have been working on a browser.
I am not sure how I can make multiple windows for the same application.
I want it set up where I can click 'new window' and a new window will pop up.
Could someone please advise me on how to do this? Thanks!
If this post is in the wrong section, please let me know.
Qt 5, Ubuntu 12.04
Of course you can make multiple windows for your single application, there are many ways to do that.
For browser kind app i think QTabWidget is convenient or you can use MDI or simple parent child dialogs. It depends of your goals.
qxoz, thanks for the quick response!
what are the differences between QTabWidget, MDI, or simple parent child dialogs? My goal is to make the browser display a new window when I press a button.
How do you imagine your app, how it will look like?
here it is thus far:
my design philosophy is to be sleek yet functional. kinda a hybrid between chrome and firefox. I would like to possibly make a tab row underneath the search bar row.
Ok, use QTabWidget then.
ok, thanks. is there a way to undo size constraints?
ok, so i am still really confused on how to use QTabWidget.
What is the problem?
So I have read the documentation, but im not sure how to make it switch tabs. Do I have to make separate windows for each tab? I know im being vague, but I just don't really understand how to get started with the tabs.
Maybe this "link":http://www.codeprogress.com/cpp/libraries/qt/qtClasses.php?item=QTabwidget can be helpful.
