Disable window maximizing/showing in QML

  • I have an application in the QML/C++ that shouldn't be able to be maximized/showed by user. It should stay minimized in taskbar whole time and when it receives a message from a server then it should maximize itself. Is it possible to do it in the QML? I was looking everywhere and I was not able to find anything similar to my issue.

    If you are using Window then set Window visibility to Maximized and then call requestActivate() when messaged is received from server.

  • Hey,

    like p3c0 already said; the window visibility should do the trick. Example code with a Window-type Component:
    @import QtQuick 2.2
    import QtQuick.Window 2.1

    Window {
    visible: true
    visibility: "Minimized"

    For the cpp part where a user shouldn't be able to maximize your application:

    @void MyApplication::changeEvent(QEvent *e)
    if(e->type() == QEvent::WindowStateChange) {
    } else {

    This should ignore the event by default, i haven't tested it out so you might play around with it a little bit to get it work properly.
