Bring parent window to the front



  • Hi!

    I'm currently developing an application using QtQuick on Windows 7 and latest QtCreator (5.3.3).

    Basically, the parent window has a button that will pop up a child window if clicked. The problem is that I do not know how to bring the parent window back to the front after the child window is spawned. Is this possible or is it a windows problem?

    root.raise() and root.show doesn't work.

    Appreciate if anyone has any knowledge on this issue. Thanks!

    Hi,

    raise() should work. Just tested it on Ubuntu and doesn't work for me, too. I'd say it's a bug in QtQuick.Window. Couldn't find it on https://bugreports.qt.io yet.



  • Not sure how to explain it but after numerous google search, I think is a windows problem.

    Interesting: Tried the same with QWidgets. Turns out: Same problem. I'm pretty sure this worked in previous Qt versions.
