[Solved] QWidget::minimumSize vs QWidget::minimumSizeHint



  • What is the difference between QWidget::minimumSize and QWidget::minimumSizeHint? Do they mean the same? If so, when should I prefer one over the other?

    Thanks,

    Jakob



  • HI and welcome to the devnet,

    QWidget::minimumSizeHint is used when you use the widget inside a layout, QWidget::minimumSize is more generic (for example a resizable widget without layout).

    You have to choose the one to use depending to what you need.



  • Ah, I see. QWidget::minimumSize (and maximumSize) actually limits what can through QWidget::setGeometry().

    Thanks
