[SOLVED] Cropping an image using QLabel and QPixmap
I want to take a screenshot of my desktop screen and then crop that image by drawing a rectangle on it. So for I am able to capture the screenshot as QPixmap, set it on QLabel and displayed as a window (window.showMaximized()). I am also able to draw a rectangle on QLabel using mouse events and paintEvent of QLabel.
The problem is that, when the paintEvent is called to draw the rectangle, the actual image vanishes from the QLabel.
How can I draw a rectangle on QLabel without loosing the pixmap?
Here is the code:
def init(self, parent = None):
self.mousePos = QPoint()
self.mouseDown = False
self.rect = QRect()
def mousePressEvent(self, event): self.mouseDown = True self.mousePos = event.pos() self.rect.setTopLeft(self.mousePos) def mouseReleaseEvent(self, event): self.rect.setBottomRight(event.pos()) self.repaint() def mouseMoveEvent(self, event): if self.mouseDown: self.rect.setBottomRight(event.pos()) self.repaint() def paintEvent(self, event): if self.rect.x() > 0: painter = QPainter(self) painter.setPen(QPen(Qt.black, 1, Qt.SolidLine)); painter.drawRect(self.rect);
for such purposes check QRubberBand class on top (as a child widget) of the label
Thank you very much :) It worked like a charm.
btw, how to make this post as "solved"? I am new to qt-project.org
