Has anyone made scrollarea zoom with widget
The scrollarea works with a label, both scrolling and zooming. Using a widget it will scroll, but not zoom. The problem seems to be with:
mageLabel->resize(scaleFactor * imageLabel->pixmap()->size());
Widget does not resize.
Has anyone found what changes must be made to widget to get it to work? Label has a method to set the contents scaleable, but widget has no such method.
You should show the complete setup of your widgets.
I assume its the scrollarea i help with so im pretty sure you are using a layout.
When a QWidget is controlled by a layout,
setGeometry and resize are ignore as layout controls sizes.
You can however use
setMinimumSize(QSize( w,h ) ) to make the widget be bigger.
@mrjj Thanks. I thought it had something to do with the layout. I changed the minimumSize from 20,000x10,000 to 200x100, all of the pixmap was visible and zooming worked, sorta--lost the scrollbars. However, headway has been made.
In looking at the QLabel source, I noted that on line 1094 the pixmap is converted to an QImage object scaled and converted back to a pixmap. I am assuming that it was done for performance reasons.
@ofmrew Just a note for others interested in source code, use wobog because it will help you navigate through the code. Nice!
