Highlight items of treeview during Drag n Drop

  • Hi,

    i have tried to highlight the item I'm currently hover when moving the mouse during a DnD.

    By the way, it doesn't work. It doesn't work during the Drag'Drop but only after when no more DnD but just mouse move. I just want the highlight when DnD and not before or after

    I have enable the highlight by:

    @void TreeView::dragMoveEvent(QDragMoveEvent * event)
    qDebug() << "On Drag Move Event";
    const QMimeData* mimeData = event->mimeData();

    if (mimeData->hasUrls())
        QTreeWidgetItem *item = itemAt(event->pos());
        if(item) {
            qDebug() << "itemat: " << item->text(0);

    #if 0
    setStyleSheet(QString::fromUtf8("QTreeWidget::item:hover {\n"
    "background-color: rgb(123, 45, 67);\n"

    // dropSite = event->answerRect();
    // event->acceptProposedAction();

  • I would suggest you use your own Delegate and handle the styling in its paint() method.

  • I tried to implement something with :

    @void TreeView::paintEvent ( QPaintEvent* event )
    QTreeView::paintEvent (event);
    QPainter painter ( viewport() );
    int x, y, w, h;
    dropSite.getRect ( &x, &y, &w, &h );
    QPoint point(x,y);
    QModelIndex modidx = indexAt ( point );
    QRect arect = visualRect ( modidx );
    int b = arect.y();
    QBrush brush(Qt::black, Qt::Dense4Pattern);
    QPen pen;
    painter.drawLine ( 0, b, width(), b );

    but it's not really working fine. if you can point me to an example using QtreeWidget it will be perfect.
