Signal/slot and GIF

  • I'm sending (checkBoxRiver) as a signal (pressed()) to a receiver (toolButtonRiver) as a slot (toggle()). I am wanting it to be able to turn on/off at my desire. I will have a Building, Roads, & Railroad layer on top of this. It NOT working. My GIFs are correct. It shows up blank (River.gif) in the actual running of it. Is it in icon (normal off)?

    As far as i know, the icon theme and "icon normal" etc is only working in linux.

    Those icons are for state of button, on/off/ selected etc and i do not think it
    will be used with Toggle() as that is for the Checkable part.

    Is a toolbutton really good for this?

    Using a custom widget should much easier overall.

    What is the custom widget? I am new to this....

    A custom widget is a widget you build yourself by e.g. aggregating other widgets or doing custom painting.

    Can you share your current code ? That will make things easier to help.
