[Solved ]how to redirect Wheel events of QWidget to QTextEdit ?



  • when you turn the mouse wheel while the mouse cursor is not on the QTextEdit ,the scroll bars will not move in such case ,but I still want to move the scroll bars by mouse wheel ,so how can I implement this function ?
    I know some software like Microsoft Word have this feature .

    I implement this feature like the following ,but when you move the scroll bars to the top or bottom by mouse wheel ,an error would occur : maximum recursion depth exceeded while calling a Python object.
    anyone can help ?

    import sys
    from PyQt4.QtGui import *
    from PyQt4.QtCore import *
    class BoxLayout(QWidget):
    def init(self, parent=None):
    super(BoxLayout, self).init(parent)
    self.resize(100, 300)

        ok = QPushButton("OK")
        cancel = QPushButton("Cancel")
        self.textEdit = QTextEdit("""This function returns true if the contents of the MIME data object, specified by source , can be decoded and inserted into the document. It is called for example when during a drag operation the mouse enters this widget and it is necessary to determine whether it is possible to accept the drag and drop operation.""")
        
        vbox = QVBoxLayout()
        vbox.addWidget(self.textEdit)
        vbox.addWidget(ok)
        vbox.addWidget(cancel)
        self.setLayout(vbox)
    

    self.textEdit.installEventFilter(self)

    def eventFilter(self, obj, event):

    if obj == self.textEdit:

    if event.type() == QEvent.Wheel:

    self.textEdit.wheelEvent(event)

    return True

    else:

    return False

    else:

    return QMainWindow.eventFilter(self, obj, event)

    def wheelEvent(self, event):
        self.textEdit.wheelEvent(event)
    

    app = QApplication(sys.argv)
    qb = BoxLayout()
    qb.show()
    sys.exit(app.exec_())
    @



  • Passing events directly from one object to another can be a recipe for a world of pain, try the following instead:

    @
    from PyQt4.QtGui import *
    from PyQt4.QtCore import *

    class BoxLayout(QWidget):
    def init(self, parent=None):
    QWidget.init(self, parent)

        self.resize(100, 300)
             
        vbox=QVBoxLayout(self)
        self.textEdit = QTextEdit("""
            This function returns true if the contents of the MIME data object,
            specified by source , can be decoded and inserted into the document.
            It is called for example when during a drag operation the mouse
            enters this widget and it is necessary to determine whether it is
            possible to accept the drag and drop operation.
        """)
        vbox.addWidget(self.textEdit)
        vbox.addWidget(QPushButton("OK", self))
        vbox.addWidget(QPushButton("Cancel", self))
    
    def wheelEvent(self, event):
        vsb=self.textEdit.verticalScrollBar()
        dy=((-event.delta()/8)/15)*vsb.singleStep()
        vsb.setSliderPosition(vsb.sliderPosition()+dy)
    

    if name=="main":
    from sys import argv, exit

    app=QApplication(argv)
    qb=BoxLayout()
    qb.show()
    exit(app.exec_())
    

    @

    See "here":http://pyqt.sourceforge.net/Docs/PyQt4/qwheelevent.html#delta for an explanation of how dy is calculated.

    Hope this helps ;o)

    thanks very very much !!!
    but there is a little flaw in this way .
    The “scrolling speed” of the scroll bar is faster when the mouse cursor is on the QTextEdit than it is NOT on the QTextEdit ,so is there any way to make the “scrolling speed” of the scroll bar when the mouse cursor is NOT on the QTextEdit equal to the speed when it is on the QTextEdit ?

    sorry for my poor english ,hope you can understand :)



  • Increasing dy will have the desired effect, try replacing line 24 with:

    @
    dy=((-event.delta()/8)/15)*vsb.singleStep()*3
    @

    You may just have to tweak this a little until you get the desired result.
