Saving widget in image
how can I save what's appearing on a widget's window?
i found 2 solutions for that that didn't work:
originalPixmap = QPixmap::grabWidget(tabWidget->currentWidget());
QString format = "png";
QString fileName = "myshot.png";
I want to make a screenshot of a video that is presented in the widget.
Is there a better way to save the widget or am i doing something wrong?
Is there a way to "manually" save a part of the screen(where the widget is located)?
Hi and welcome
Does work as expected here. (win 7 , Qt 5.5) for a normal control.
But If you are showing live video, it is often not working as one would expect.
You could look into exporting a frame from the video
or try the
and see if grabbing the whole screen, does show your video.
these 2 lines of code did the job:
QScreen *screen = QGuiApplication::primaryScreen(); originalPixmap = screen->grabWindow(ui->widget->winId());
