How to Develop a Calendar Widget.



  • hello volker

    actually i had read about QPainters but doesnt know hw to implement it..from where to start

    i had given a code,,u plz check it whether its ok to work or not..

    @QPainter* pPainter = new QPainter(this);
    pPainter->drawPixmap(rect(), QPixmap(":/images/bg.png"));@

    after that what should i do cant find it
    regards

  • Read the docs. If you really do so, you will find a link to an example that even contains drawing pixmaps. Grab it, play with it, adapt it. This all is really basic stuff, explained multiple times in the docs with uncountable examples in the docs. We're not going to do your homework!



  • imrrk and/or Anshuman:

    I am really done with this thread. Please do all of us here, including first and foremost yourself, a big favor, and get yourself enrolled in a good programming course in C++. If they use Qt, than that is a bonus, but that is not even needed. Otherwise, perhaps you should draft up a document describing what you want to achieve (not how you want to do that), and get yourself a consultant to do the work for you. I think a good one can do what you have achieved in the course of weeks of postings and copy/pasting snippets you have managed to beg of the contributers here in a matter of an hour or so. As it stands, I doubt you are able to ever complete whatever project you are on, and I feel spending any more time on this issue is a waste.

    All the best of luck, I am signing off.



  • ok..volker and /andre..thanks..i will try my level b est in doing so..but if any doubt arises i will ask u..

    You (in plural or singular meaning - choose whatever you want) may ask, but don't expect any further answers. I step out too.



  • Hello Volker

    as per ur suggestion i hv read QPainter class in QT..as per ur discussion i hv tried this code in setting backgroundImage in a particular cell in CalenderWidget but an error occur..cn u please check the error..

    @void PainterApp::paintEvent(QPaintEvent *)
    {
    QPainter painter(this);
    QRectF target(30.0, 40.0, 80.0, 60.0);
    QRectF source(30.0, 40.0, 70.0, 40.0);
    QImage image("C:/QTWork/back-icon.png");

      painter.drawImage(target, image, source);
    
      ui->calendarWidget->paintCell(painter,target,QDate::currentDate());
    
     painter.end();
    

    }@

    regards
    Anshuman



  • Why u using a paint event handler to do the painting?
    And if you ask to check the error, then why i dont see any output?
    Pleae post your error, or even better make a small app in wich your problem occurs and post it.

    Edit:
    On a site where trolls are super admin, it doesnt mean that you must "troll" yourself.



  • What are you doing? To get custom painting do this:

    Derive a class from QCalendarWidget

    Reimplement the paintCell() protected virtual function to do you custom painting

    Use your custom class in your app instead of QCalendarWidget

    When you reimplement the paintCell() function I suggest you make the changes from the base class version very incrementally so that you can see what the changes do and learn as you go along.

  • hello ZapB

    Actually i inherit Qdialog and QCalenderWidget class..now when i build my app the following error ocurrs...can anyone suggest me why is occur..

    Error r....

    Rquest for member show() is ambiguous //show in main .cpp

    the code i hv wrritten is:

    @class PainterApp : public QDialog,public QCalendarWidget
    {
    Q_OBJECT

    public:
    explicit PainterApp(QWidget *parent = 0);
    ~PainterApp();

    private:
    Ui::PainterApp *ui;
    };
    @
    @void PainterApp::paintCell(QPainter * painter, const QRect & rect, const QDate & date ) const{

    QRectF target(30.0, 40.0, 80.0, 60.0);
    QRectF source(30.0, 40.0, 70.0, 40.0);
    QImage image("C:/QTWork/back-icon.png");
    
    
    painter->drawImage(target, image, source);
    ui->calendarWidget->paintCell(painter,rect,date.currentDate());
    

    }@
    with reagrds

  • hello anshuman
    bq. class PainterApp : public QDialog,public QCalendarWidget

    this should in this way
    class PainterApp : public QDialog,public Ui::Dialog//name of your form..



  • That's because you are trying something that is not allowed and makes no sense when you think about it. The calendar widget will be shown within a dialog. The calendar widget is not a dialog. So use composition not inheritcance for the dialog aspect.

    @
    class MyCalendarWidget : public QCalendarWidget
    {
    ...
    protected:
    virtual void paintCell(QPainter* painter, const QRectF& rect, const QDate& date)
    {
    // Do custom painting here!!! See base class for default implementation and ideas
    }
    };

    ...
    ...
    ...

    class MyDialog : public QDialog
    {
    ...
    };
    @



  • Hello ZapB

    thanks for ur reply..

    Actually when i use the code like that

    class PainterApp : public QDialog,public Ui::Dialog//name of your form..

    than error is

    // invalid use of incomplete type struct Ui::PainterApp//my form name come..

    and one more thing i hv calender widget present in QtDesigner..which means i havent create my own custom calender..

    regards

    [/quote]

    So do what I suggested and create one. You cannot override the paintCell() function if you do not have a sub-class of QCalendarWidget can you? This is basic C++.



  • ok ZapB I am sending my code u please check it..now no error signifies but nothing display in the cell..

    @namespace Ui {
    class PainterApp;
    }
    class MyCalendarWidget : public QCalendarWidget
    {
    private:
    Ui::PainterApp ui;
    protected:
    virtual void paintCell(QPainter
    painter, const QRectF& rect, const QDate& date);

    };
    class PainterApp : public QDialog
    {
    Q_OBJECT

    public:
    explicit PainterApp(QWidget *parent = 0);
    ~PainterApp();

    private:
    Ui::PainterApp *ui;
    private slots:

    };@

    @#include "painterapp.h"
    #include "ui_painterapp.h"

    PainterApp::PainterApp(QWidget *parent) :
    QDialog(parent),
    ui(new Ui::PainterApp)
    {
    ui->setupUi(this);

    }
    void MyCalendarWidget::paintCell(QPainter* painter, const QRectF& rect, const QDate& date)
    {

    rect(30.0, 40.0, 80.0, 60.0);
    QImage image("C:/QTWork/back-icon.png");
    
    
    painter->drawImage(rect, image, rect);
    ui->calendarWidget->paintCell(painter,rect,date.currentDate());
    

    }
    @

    regards
    Anshuman



  • A few issues for you to consider/fix:

    Whay are your trying to change the rect passed into the paintCell() call. This is setup to tell you where to draw by the base class. Do not change it.

    Why are you trying to include the ui for something totally unrelated into your sub-class of QCalendarWidget?

    It seems you have no conceptual idea of how Qt widgets, dialogs, ui files etc relate to each other. I respectfully suggest that you go work through some of the many examples and tutorials shipped with Qt.



  • hi Zapb

    Actually i am new in Qt..more ever all of other people are new in Qt..so no one was there to guide me..ok i will..if u dont mind can u sent some material regarding Qt..actually i hv go through the documentation but it difficult to understand..

    if possible u can send me some material regarding Qt i my email address
    borah.anshu@gmail.com

    with regards
    Anshuman



  • Qt Documentation and examples shipped with Qt are the best docs and materials for learning Qt I think.



  • Launch the qtdemo application. Find an example that interests you. Launch it and then read the docs about it.
