Very new to QT and ask to be pointed in the right direction. Thanks!
I have a QMainWindow that is roughly 1280x1024.
QScreen screen = qApp->screens().at(0);
QMainWindow display = new QMainWindow();
This works as intended, I get a nice window that is the appropriate size. Life is Good.
After this, I try to add a QWidget to the QMainWindow.
QWidget *c = new QWidget(display);
I then try to set the Geometry(top left coordinate, height, width) of the QWidget.
c->setGeometry(100, 100, 200, 200);
This did not work as intended. It set the size to 200x200, which is great. However, it put it in the top left corner of the window.
So, I tried this, with the same result.
I added combinations of the following to no avail.
I would appreciate any help. Thanks!
