QWebEngineView not working with QVirtualKeyboard
Paso last edited by Paso
Im trying to use the Virtual Keyboard on a website, rendered within a
QWebEngineView, but the keyboard does not pop up if I click into a text field. If I place a
QLineEdit, next to the
QWebEngineViewand click into it, the Virtual Keyboard works as expected. Interestingly, if I clicked into the
QLineEditonce, it starts also popping up, when clicking into the text field on the web page, but it still does not receive any key strokes. Somehow I can not belief, that the Virtual Keyboard is not working within
QWebEngineView, since this seems a rather common use case to me.
Did I miss something? Does someone else see this problem?
To reproduce, any example using
QWebEngineViewcan be used. The only modification necessary is to paste the following line, before
QApplication(...) is created:
I'm working on Fedora 25 with Wayland.
Some further debugging in
PlatformInputContext::setFocusObject()is not being called for Widgets rendered within
QWebContentView, but why?
I don't really know why, but since I compiled QWebEngine myself, it works!
