QGraphicsView with custom QGLWidget
I am trying to integrate this:
But I want to use a third party library that does the rendering.
The class that currently renders is derived from QGLWidget.
This is how it currently draws:
@ void occView::paintEvent( QPaintEvent* e )

If anyone could help me with this I would greatly appreciate it
Added link to program
Well, you have to ship your code from third library to Qt's Graphics-View framework, an alternative is to override QGraphicsView's drawBackground() method and draw it.
Thank you for replying.
So if I override drawBackground()
Is it as simple as this?
I uploaded the project if you want to see how the drawing is done.
I am very sorry to tell you that I can't access your bare bone program.
you mentioned that 3rd party library renders the widget in paintEvent method, I know, before doing any OpenGL command, they should call makeCurrent() first to ensure the OpenGL context is ready, and usually end with its method using doneCurrent(). and Qt's graphics-view framework is slightly different, as I mentioned above, drawBackground() method is called within QGraphicsView's paintEvent method, people who wants to do 2D overlays usually warp drawing OpenGL commands by called painter->beginNativePaining() and endNativePainting(), the "painter"variable is passed as an argument in drawBackground(). What if the third library uses QPainter again? I don't know, but you could have a try. If failed, please do let me know what the third library is. Hope to bring you useful information.
I have tried what you said. No errors or warnings, but it still doesn't display.
According to "this":http://doc.qt.digia.com/qq/qq26-openglcanvas.html If you do any painting using QPainter instead of using pure OpenGL commands, you will need to invoke save() and restore() on the painter.
I did this as well.
I have uploaded a basic example to a better file host, if you want to understand my problem better. http://www.mediafire.com/download/aaho6zeu6f4m5e7/Basic program.zip
If I add "this->show();" in OpenGLScene, it shows the correct window in a seperate window, so there is nothing wrong with the code. I seems like it isn't adding it to the window.
The third party library is "OpenCascade":http://www.opencascade.org/.
