Changing from ScrollBar to FixedWidth

  • Hello, I am a new Qt user, and am looking for some help on a legacy project I have taken over. I want to remove scroll bar from a grid layout, having two columns instead.

    Currently, I have a window with a page in it that scrolls vertically. I want to remove the scroll bar and place all the extra information that would previously be scrolled to, in another column right next to the first.

    I am currently using a QGridLayout where the height of each row will take the size of the largest QGroupBox.

    Thank you for your time, any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Can you maybe post a picture of what you have and one of what you want to have ?

    Your current situation isn't really clear.

    Do you really need group boxes ?

    You could simply put two QListView/Widget side by side.

  • @SGaist I have names of the groups so I guess the photo looks a bit more like this than what I posted previously.

    I tried changing the groupBox to a QListView and it didn't seem to do anything, yet I am betting it is just due to the nature of the code.

    FYI, there are around 2,000 lines of code in this project....with 0 comments. I am having some trouble locating exactly what I am supposed to change, but I will keep at it.

    Ok, the you could simply use a QHBoxLayout and put the QGroupBox on beside the other.
