Can't Decide what UI component to use for Memory Allocation simulation
Hi Everyone ,
It is just my second time using QT , i have an assignment and i should simulate memory allocation , getting processes from user.
I just don't know what to use to represent the memory , in each memory slot i need to represent the process name and the address of the slot of course.
I have thought about using table with one column and rows with variable heights (small one for the address and large one for the process name , which means each slot will take 2 rows) but i couldn't know how to have a table with varying row heights.
you should consider to implement the GUI with QML/QtQuick. It's much more flexible than traditional QWidgets and you can very easily make the GUI look whatever you want it to.
Hi and welcome to devnet,
To control the row height, you can implement a QStyledItemDelegate that will return the good value for sizeHint.
Hope it helps

I would keep it simple: a table with two columns, one for the process name, the other for the memory address. A nice to have feature: make the table sortable by columns, so you can order the processes either by name or memory address.
Thanks Very much , it was really helpful , i used a table with the row index as the slot address and it looked acceptable i guess.
