Removal of TWM frames

  • Hi,

    I am building an application for Redhat using TWM and QT 4.7.2 I wish to prevent the user from iconizing, moving, closing, etc the popups from outside my application, so desire removing the TWM applied frame. The problem I have is that when attempting to use the QT window flags, in TWM

    1. Qt::Dialog | Qt::WindowStaysOnTopHint| Qt::FramelessWindowHint, doesn't appear to remove the frame in TWM like it does elsewhere

    2. Qt::Dialog | Qt::WindowStaysOnTopHint| Qt::X11BypassWindowManagerHint | Qt::FramelessWindowHint removes the frame, but then won't let me set focus on an entry field to input data (ie. clicking on a QLineEdit field does not insert the cursor for me to enter data)

    3. Qt::Popup | Qt::WindowStaysOnTopHint| Qt::FramelessWindowHint also removes the frame and allows for entries, but clicking elsewhere on the display automatically dismisses the popup.

    Are there any suggestion on how I can get a popup with no frames, will stay up even when the user clicks elsewhere, and will allow focus to change within the popup? For instance, is there a way to set the popup like 3) above, but bypass the event that closes the window?

    Any help would be appreciated.
