[solved] How to expand widget in other widget without using layout?
I have one widget (QWidget) that contains QScrollArea widget (I needed scroll bars for my program).
I have problem with QScrollArea that doesn't fit to its parent (QWidget) - area should have the same size as QWidget. Probably I can do this by installing a resizing filter, but I was wondering if there is other way to do this?
I can't use layout, because my QWidget could be resized to its minimum size (until I don't see any childs inside it, practically the height is near to 0). When I use layout I can't resize widget to minimum because scrollbars prevent from this - in that situation I can minimize QWidget only to size when scrollbar is minimum.
I don't know if I explain it clearly, but if not please write I will try to do this better.
did you notice "QScrollArea's 'widgetResizable' property":http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qscrollarea.html#widgetResizable-prop ?
If i understood you correct thats what you want... but probably i did not :)
just reimplement resizeEvent() in your containg QWidget, and get the geometry of your contained QScrollArea manually in that code.
Raven-worx: setting widgetResizable to true allows to resize QScrollArea to it child widget (I assume that from docs). I want to resize that area to it's parent.
Andre: Previously I was thinking about writing filter, but creating my own class that inherits QWidget was the best solution, thanks.
