Which solution is best to resize QToolButton full-width?

  • I wanted same width and full-width QToolButtons but my phone abandoned me :(

    First I thought set QSS to QToolButton with "width: 100%;" but it didn't be resized I wish. Then I thought some solutions like reimplementing QToolBar's resize event, using QWidgetAction with QPushButton, Inserting HBoxLayout to QToolbar and etc.

    Umm... I guess better solution is exist, maybe. Any other solutions?

  • Sounds like your issue is also related to the request here:
    It's being worked on by the Qt team at the moment. If you have additional comments or suggestions, please post them as a comment to the report!

  • Thx ajkl. I have just commented.

    Qt team doesn't think it is not so important. But I think it's very important issue for Symbian developers with Qt… :-/

  • We do think it is important (but not critical).

    Note that you can easily set your QToolButtons inside QToolBars occupy fullwidth using sizepolicies.

    For example:
    QToolBar *toolbar = new QToolBar(this);
    QToolButton *toolbutton = new QToolButton(this);
    toolbutton->setSizePolicy(QSizePolicy::MinimumExpanding, QSizePolicy::Maximum);
    toolbar ->addWidget(toolbutton);
    toolbar ->setSizePolicy(QSizePolicy::MinimumExpanding, QSizePolicy::Maximum);

    Hopefully this helps.

    Please follow the linked bug for additional information.

  • Thx for your help, Fuzzbender.

    Your code works well but setSizePolicy() doesn't affect QToolButton that created through addAction() method.

    I used setSizePolicy() in actionEvent() and resizeEvent() with QToolButton got by widgetForAction(). Am I worng?

  • Yes, you are right. ToolBar uses layout to internally set the size of QAction derived buttons to "minimal".
