QScrollArea layout tips in designer?
I meet an inconvenient operation when adding a lot of widgets into a QScrollArea. If I set layout first, then I can see scrollbar, but it is not possible to put the widgets to any position I want when layout is set. If I don't set layout, QScrollArea can only see the size as much as screen size. I can not put widgets to area outside the screen .
How to you deal with such situation?
Layouts determine where widgets are placed. You cannot freely position them.
However, you could use a Grid layout. That allows widgets to be placed on a grid
and offer more freedom. But no layout allows freely placing widgets in any position you wish.
Note however, with all the layout you can drag widgets to a position and the other widgets will be moved.
A blue line is shown for the insertion point.
However, there is widgetResizable. If you set it to false and call
widget()->resize() to something larger than screen. it might allow scrolling with no
layouts. You might need to set scrollbars to show always.
Your first tip is good. But sometimes I want to append a sub-layout and then put two or more widget into it.

Then do it. A layout can contain other layouts and so on...
