Responsive QWidget: is it possible?

  • Hi,

    I am working on a desktop app composed for several panels. Every panel is a QWidget, but depending on different events, some of the widgets are removed from the interface creating empty spaces. I would like that the remaining widgets automatically expand their dimensions in a responsive way covering the available spaces of the main window.

    Is there a way to implement this requirement? Thanks.

    Yes: use layouts, like QHBoxLayout, QVBoxLayout, QGridLayout etc. Then all your widgets will automatically adjust their sizes (you can control it by setting size policy).

    I suspect what you describe is an issue that once a QWidget is removed from layout, the layout still keeps it's space (which is now empty). To work around that, use takeAt() when removing widgets.
