    Default Drag and drop from QPlainTextEdit to QListWidget

    I'd like to add drag and drop where a user selects text in a QPlainTextEdit and drags it over to a QListWidget, which only happens to contain lines of text. I tried putting a breakpoint in QListWidget::dropEvent so I could trace through and kind of figure out what to call, since I didn't see any virtual functions to override for it. But the breakpoint didn't hit, so I'm at a bit of a loss what to do.

    Is this possible, and if so, would anyone mind giving me pointers on where to look first?

    Thanks!

    Default Re: Drag and drop from QPlainTextEdit to QListWidget

    dropEvent() won't be called unless dragEnterEvent() accepts the drag event first.
    Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is futile.

    Please ask Qt related questions on the forum and not using private messages or visitor messages.
