disable tabs it tab widgit?
does anybody know how to disable tabs in the tab widget so I can manually switch tabs when the toolbar icons associated with each mode is clicked?
I tried doing a borderless window way but that creates additional tabs on my window taskbar.
no I will thankyou
EDIT: sorry I should rephrase my question.
I want to hide the tabs not disable them. when I said disable I meant only by clicking.
EDIT2: I have also just tried "ui->tab->hide()" and the tabs are still visible
Then why use a QTabWidget ? A QStackedWidget sounds more fitting.
I figured I could just move the tabs off screen. that way I can still use them but only by the toolbar.
btw I was wondering if it possible to achieve the tab effect with the toolbar? I know it sounds silly but I like the look of it.
basicly I want the tool buttons to stay held down when I am in a certain tab.
QTabWidget is basically a QTabBar on top of a QStackedWidget.
Just take one thing into account: if you are implementing this for other people, you are not following the platform guidelines which might throw off your application users.
oh ok I will do a QStackedWidget then.
thankyou for the info.
