Embed 3rd Party Application into One That I Created

  • Hi Qt programmers,

    It is an application that I use that I like. The only thing, the creators of the application did not create it with a workspace, meaning that the windows float. Is there a way that I can create a window and embed the floating windows into it?

    Do you have the source code of that application?
    If not, than I doubt you can embed the UI of an external application in your own as both are executed in different processes.

    Thanks for your reply. I don't have the code and I can understand why it would be difficult to implement that. I heard that it is possible though, so I was just checking to see if there is something that could make it easier in this huge API. Thanks again.
