From 10:00 CET Friday 22nd November we will adjust how the server works to deal with some recently reported problems. Therefore there may be a load problem, if you experience more problems than usual trying to access the forum then please PM AndyS or any of the moderators so they can inform me.

Form load function

  • i created new form in Qt and i would like to ask you where is form load function, where i can put my code.

    And another problems are that file_exists doesn't work and i dont know why (i would like to use C native functions), and my Messagebox show before form load why? I would like to load while form and then show my Messagebox. And the last thing is that this->close(); at if statement doesn't work.

    This is my code:

    @#include "nacitanie_okno.h"
    #include "ui_nacitanie_okno.h"
    #include "funkcie.h"
    #include <iostream>

    const char *subory[] = { "test.txt" } ;

    nacitanie_okno::nacitanie_okno(QWidget *parent) :
    ui(new Ui::nacitanie_okno)

    int i;
    int pocet = 1;
    int percent = 20 / pocet;
    for(i = 0; i < pocet ; i++){
            ui->progressBar->setValue(ui->progressBar->value() + percent);
        } else {
            MessageBox("Hi","teeest"); // my own function for messagebox


    delete ui;

    and in funkcie.h is this:

    @bool file_exists(const char * subor)
    if (FILE * sub = fopen(subor, "r"))
    return true;
    return false;

    thank you

  • [quote author="SGaist" date="1416439024"]You can't but C++ code anywhere in a file like that.

    Also, Afterload doesn't belong to MainWindow.

    Are you a C++ beginner ?[/quote]

    At C++ yes, but i have experiences with C and C#. So how does it work? Where i have to put it? :)

    Thank you

    in e.g. main.cpp

    You should take the time to go through Qt's tutorial and read some of the examples/demos provided with Qt's sources.

  • Okey i found solution.

    I just add to mainwindow.h

    void load();@

    And in mainwindow.cpp

    @void MainWindow::load() {
    QMessageBox msgBox;
    msgBox.setText("The document has been modified.");

    And then i call it from main.cpp

    @ MainWindow w;;

    This works but it amazes me that such an important function is not implemented in default "Slots" (Go to slot) in Qt Creator :)

    Thank you

    Important in your you ;)

    There are several possibilities to achieve that and without knowing what exactly you'd like to do after the widget is shown, it's not easy to help you.

    I have one more question how can i call function after all items in widgets are constructed? (By items i mean for example, buttons, progress bar etc). Because when i write:

    @void MainWindow::load() {
    // my func

    then i have to wait 1 second + execution time of my func to load all items in widget. I would like to construct all items and then call my func.

    Can you help me please?

    Thank you very much! :)

    QTimer::singleShot is your friend

  • [quote author="SGaist" date="1416876558"]QTimer::singleShot is your friend[/quote]

    Do you mean this?


    @#include "mainwindow.h"
    #include "ui_mainwindow.h"
    #include <QMessageBox>
    #include <QTimer>
    #include <QThread>

    void MainWindow::do_it(){

    QMessageBox msgBox;
    msgBox.setText("My func.");


    void MainWindow::Afterload(){
    QTimer::singleShot(500, this, SLOT(do_it()));

    MainWindow::MainWindow(QWidget *parent) :
    ui(new Ui::MainWindow)

    delete ui;


    @#ifndef MAINWINDOW_H
    #define MAINWINDOW_H

    #include <QMainWindow>

    namespace Ui {
    class MainWindow;

    class MainWindow : public QMainWindow

    private slots:
    void do_it();

    explicit MainWindow(QWidget *parent = 0);
    void Afterload();

    Ui::MainWindow *ui;

    #endif // MAINWINDOW_H@

    This works, but i am wondering if is this correct :)

    @MainWindow::MainWindow(QWidget *parent) :
    ui(new Ui::MainWindow)
    QTimer::singleShot(0, this, SLOT(do_it()));
