QStackedWidget unexpected behavior
I'm using Qt designer to develop a simple log in system where users enter username/password to gain access to the app. Page 1 of the QStackedWidget has the Sign In button and page 2 has the actual content of the app and a Sign out button.
The weird behavior I'm getting is if I have page 2 in display in Qt designer before I run the app, when the app starts page 2 which has the Sign out button is the first page to show up when the program starts. If page 1 is in display in Qt designer, when I click run, page 1 is the first page to show up when the program runs.
Is this normal? How do I make sure that page 1 is the first page the user sees no matter which page is the current page in Qt designer?
My concern is if the app goes into actual deployment how will I be sure that the sign in page is displayed first before the user is authenticated to use the program?
yes its normal. You set the active page in Designer when you go to it.
You can call ui->yourstackedwidget->setCurrentIndex(0) in QMainWindow
constructor to make sure first page is always displayed.
