Lost keyboard control when embedding application into QApplication



  • I'm using Qt 5.2 and trying to embed notepad.exe into a widget in my QApplication. my code is:

    @ HWND winHandle = ::FindWindowA(NULL, "Untitled - Notepad");
    if(winHandle != NULL)
    {
    QWindow * window = QWindow::fromWinId((WId) winHandle);
    QWidget * notepadWidget = QWidget::createWindowContainer(window);
    notepadWidget ->setParent( ui->widget);
    QVBoxLayout *layout = new QVBoxLayout();
    layout->addWidget(notepadWidget);
    ui->widget->setLayout(layout);
    }@

    the notepad window is embedded beautifully into my application, but i lost the keyboard control!! I cannot type inside notepad. The mouse is working properly(i can select text, etc.) anyone?



  • Maybe in the keyEvent call explicitly the notepad keypressed event?



  • Didn't get that...
    what do you mean exactly?
