[SOLVED]Add custom widget to layout?

  • I have created a custom widget that is based on QTextEdit

    @class MyWidget : public QTextEdit

    and now I want to add a method for showing this widget, but trying

    @QWidget *myWidget = new QWidget;
    QGridLayout *myLayout = new QGridLayout;
    MyWidget customWidget(myWidget);
    myLayout->addItem(customWidget); // or addWidget, same result

    results in the error

    @error: no matching member function for call to 'addItem'

    How can I show my custom QWidget?

  • Create customWidget on heap too (it's the recommended way to create the child widgets):
    QWidget *myWidget = new QWidget;
    QGridLayout *myLayout = new QGridLayout;

    MyWidget* customWidget = new MyWidget(myWidget);


  • Hello,

    customWidget should be a pointer.

    Try something like this:

    @MyWidget* customWidget = new MyWidget(myWidget);
    myLayout->addWidget( customWidget );

    best regards,

  • Got it, thanks guys .)
