action to be triggered based on its custom shortcut
user4592357 last edited by
suppose i have some action to happen. for that i can create an
QActionobject and connect its
triggeredsignal to the slot that executes the desired function. also, i can have a shortcut associated with the action; changing the shortcut i'll be able to execute the same action with that shortcut.
my problem now is that the "shortcut" i wanna set to the action, contains also a mouse button press (and mouse events cannot be assigned to action shortcuts); say i want
Shift+Left mouse button. maybe this sounds a little bit harsh but bear with me.
what do i need? well, i have a button, and an action (say "execute a script"). i want the script to execute when
Shift+Left clickis clicked, and i want this "shortcut" to be customized, i.e. the user should be able to change to shortcut to, say
Ctrl+Left click(from some gui element, e.g. button text), and now
Ctrl+Left clickshould execute the script.
how can i do this?
Well the shortcut system cannot be tied to mouse events so you have to make a special launch button
that has a overwritten mousePress function.
In that function you can use
to see if ctrl, shift , alt is pressed and then emit a signal to have the
script holder execute the script.
For editing it, you can use a line edit and let user somehow select the keys and mouse button.
(maybe from comboboxes )
