How to get QPixmap from QItemSelection?

  • Hello.

    How can I get QPixmap from QItemSelection?

    I am trying to make an image viewer. Currently, I have successfully loaded images to QstandarditemModel as below.
    Now, I would like to show an enlarged image which is selected by mouse clicked. To do so, I think, first, I should get QPixmap from QItemSelection in order to show into QLabel Box.

    Please help.

    Thank you.

    this->model = new QStandardItemModel();
    ui->listView->setGridSize(QSize(320, 240));
    ui->listView->setIconSize(QSize(280, 200));
    QObject::connect(ui->listView->selectionModel(), SIGNAL(selectionChanged(QItemSelection, QItemSelection)), this, SLOT(imageSelectionChanged(QItemSelection)));

    //---------Load Button Event ------------
    QFileDialog::Options options;
    options |= QFileDialog::DontUseNativeDialog;

    QString selectedFilter;
    QStringList fileNames = QFileDialog::getOpenFileNames(this, tr("QFileDialog::getOpenFileNames()"), "./../data", tr("All Files ();;Image Files (.bmp)"), &selectedFilter, options);
    for (int i = 0; i < fileNames.count(); i++) {
    QStandardItem *item = new QStandardItem(QIcon(fileNames[i]), fileNames[i]);

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    You should rather load it from the same file used to create the icon. Your QIcon will have a reduced version of the image while you rather want to have the original.
