[solved]QDialog keyPressEvent is not triggered

  • Hi All. I have created a subclass to QDialog.I need to catch mouse click on the dialog window area.But it doesn't work.
    Here is my code:

    #include "aboutdialog.h"
    #include <qdebug.h>
    AboutDialog::AboutDialog(QWidget *parent) :
    QDialog(parent,Qt::FramelessWindowHint | Qt::Popup|Qt::Dialog)



    void AboutDialog::keyPressEvent(QKeyEvent *e){

    qDebug()<<"About dialog window clicked";

    void AboutDialog::showEvent(QShowEvent *e){



    What is missing here?ShowEvent gets triggered all right but when I am clicking in the dialog window the keyPressEvent doesn't respond . The UI for the AboutDialog contains only background image.

    keyPresseEvent is for the keyboard, you have the mousePressEvent for the mouse click

  • Indeed,I need to stop working at night ;) Thanks.
