Qt HTML5 in a transparent frame
I'm trying to create a translucent/transparent frame/window where I can render some HTML (without background). In Qt Quick it was fairly easy to achieve the transparent window, but because of the HTML requirement I started of with the HTML5 project template.
I then modified htmlapplicationviewer.cpp, Html5ApplicationViewerPrivate() to do:
This makes the frame transparent as expected, but as a lot of other posts mention the repainting of the frame if broken and I get something like this for the HTML5 template application (the stars you see is my desktop background, so the window is fully transparent as wanted):
It seems that the repaint issue is known, but the solutions do not seem to work for me. Things I tried:
- overwrite the repaintEvent() of the Html5ApplicationViewerPrivate as suggested "here":http://qt-project.org/forums/viewthread/24837.
- messed with the palette and did setBrush(QPalette::Base, Qt::transparent); for parent and Html5ApplicationViewerPrivate.
However, I did not find a solution. Anyone that can help me?
