[SOLVED] Intercepting Tab key press to manage focus switching manually
I want to intercept Tab key press in my main window to prevent Qt from switching focus. Here's what I've
tried so far:
@bool CMainWindow::event(QEvent * e)
if (e && e->type() == QEvent::KeyPress)
QKeyEvent * keyEvent = dynamic_cast<QKeyEvent*>(e);
if (keyEvent && keyEvent->key() == Qt::Key_Tab)
This doesn't work, event isn't called when I press Tab. neither do keyPressEvent and eventFilter. How to achieve what I want?
Found a solution: reimplementing virtual bool QApplication::notify(QObject * receiver, QEvent * e) and pasting the code from my question there works.
