How I hide/show whole parts of the QMainWindow?
My QMainWindow has basically 2 states.
In one state, it displays ONLY a file browser, and other related stuff (recent files list, and so on).
After you choose a file, I want it to show ONLY dock widgets, and disable the central widget.
I think the logic should be:
File browser: hide all dock areas (but NOT the widgets, the user might want their hidden/visible status stay as they were before), set the central widget to the file browser.
File open: hide the central widget, show all dock areas.
So how I do that?
Docks need a central widget.
They can be docked around it.
You can however alter the size of it etc.
So what exactly are you hoping would happen if you could disable it ?
Well, without a central widget, everything can be docked and undocked from everywhere.
I found a program that was made with QT, and do what I want partially.
Everything on that screenshot is dragable, the functions window, graph, tabs, exports, imports, all of those are dockable, and also become tabs (also, I noticed some stuff docked inside another dock? ie: the exports and imports).
Ok that is cool.
What is the name of this app ?
Normally, its not so happy to dock in center.
