Mouse Event on Qlabel?

  • I have a button , a Qlabel and 4 double variables say x,y,width and height.

    Now what i want is that once i click button and then go to the qlabel i can get the coordinated of the roi selected by mouse pressed and released event ?

    For getting coordinate on Qlable I watched this Video:

    But for some reason my Qlabel_mouseevent class(my_label in video) seems to be different when i create it.


    #include <QWidget>
    class Qlabel_mouseevent : public QLabel

    Hi what you have is just new class.
    You did not override mousepress

    they look like
    void mousePressEvent(QMouseEvent * event);
    void mouseReleaseEvent(QMouseEvent * event);

    please see this :)

  • @mrjj I still don't get how to make mouse event on qlabel active only when a putton is pressed and once it gets the value of roi it again act as normal qlabel

  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    If you do not do
    void ClickableLabel::mousePressEvent(QMouseEvent* event) {
    emit clicked();

    then it will be a normal label

    so if only allowed to be clicked after some button pressed ( not toggle ?)

    you need to tell it to stop emit.

    You can try to set use setDisabled
    void QWidget::setDisabled(bool disable)

    when you set them back to "normal"

    so they wont be clickable.
