Open a process and embed in a widget



  • HI guys, I was wondering if it's possible to open a process with QProcess and embed his gui in a widget?

    MainWindow::MainWindow(QWidget *parent) : QMainWindow(parent), ui(new Ui::MainWindow)
    {
        QProcess *calc = new QProcess(this);
        calc->start("calculator");
        ui->setupUi(this);
    }
    

    It's going to open the calculator, but I wanted to embed on my application (widget, or whatever) instead of opening as a separated process.

    I know that it's possible cause there are a few video players like mplayer that people embed using Qt, but I have no idea how to do that with other process.

    no in general thats not possible.
    Unless the (specific) process also exposes a library to use in your application.
    The only other possibility i see is to use QAxWidget to embed a ActiveX control under MS Windows.



  • I though so, thank you very much @raven-worx
