MousePressEvent get the widgetName?

  • Hello !

    Today I have implemented my own widget based on QWidget and I added a mousePressEvent so whenever I create this widget, I can click inside and trigger an event. Now I would like that when I click it returns my widgetObjectName.
    How could I do that ?

    I ve seen that maybe I could get the mouse position and then use itemAt()
    but it doesn't seem to work for QWidget...

    Any simple way of doing that ?


  • Hi and welcome to devnet,

    I'm not sure to fully understand your question.
    What do you need? Inside the mousePressEvent() handler you have full access to the widget data. You can emit a signal and in the slot you can use the QObject::sender() function to have a pointer to the signal sender.
