Qt::WindowStaysOnTopHint is not working
I need to create a file dialog displayed on top. At first I tried with QFileDialog::getExistingDirectory but I didn't succeed so I changed to:
QFileDialog dialog(0, Qt::WindowStaysOnTopHint);
folderPath = dialog.selectedFiles();@
The first time the dialog is displayed on bottom but the following times is displayed on top.
Could someone please explain me why this behaviour? It happens in Windows XP/7/8
Thanks in advance.
which platform did you try. Normally with above code, it should show on top always. What is the sequence in which this dialog is opened ? If it is X11, you may need to pass Qt::X11BypassWindowManagerHint as well.
The application is run in a Windows platform. The sequence is the following:
- Object A of class 1 is created in main thread and moved to a secondary thread.
- The previous object creates object B of class 2 and moves it into the main thread.
- Object B creates the file dialog.
I´ve just realised that if I do @setOptions(QFileDialog::DontUseNativeDialog);@
then the dialog is displayed on top.
Does anyone know why is this happening?
