Transforming an app into dialog
WhatIf last edited by
I'm trying to have the ability to take still images from my app but need more directions to get it to work. The simplest example I was able to find online is
While I don't need all the video features, I don't mind them being part of the app. All I need is instead of the Camera app being stand alone, I want it to start in a QDialog, as part of my app. If it's complex, how can I integrate it into my app to be displayed in the last page of a stackedwidget?
I'm kind of used to creating everything in Qt Designer with some basic knowledge of Qt and would appreciate just a list of what is required to get the camera to capture still images in my app.
Its a QMainwindow and uses a QmenuBar
for some menus so making it QDialog is not
However, you could just cheat a bit and make it modal with
and use it as a dialog even if its not.
There is nothing bad about having 2 mainwindows even if not often used.
But cant do this in Designer.
You must new a Camera window yourself.
