Applying New UI Overtop the Existing Main Window
This is a bit of a newbe question: How do you apply a new UI overtop the existing mainwindow?
If I create a new form (newform.ui). Then on a button press, create a new instance
@NewForm nf = new NewForm();@
then initiate the new form:
The new form opens in a new window and not the overtop the mainwindow. I take it that I have to somehow replace the existing form, but I am not too sure how?
Thanks for any help,
Hi and welcome to devnet,
What exactly are you trying to achieve with NewForm ?
Thank you for your reply,
At the moment, I am getting a new window with a title bar, that can be moved around the screen, with the parent form being visible under the new. I want to be able to have only one windows who's content changes and no new windows.
I hope that makes sense!
I think I need to create a widget rather than a form... but I am not too sure...
OK, found it. I need to setCentralWidget with my new form...
Depending on what you'll be doing a QStackedWidget as central widget will be more suited
