    Default How to embed a QAxWidget into QGraphicsProxyWidget?

    Hi, all,

    I want to embed a QAxWidget into QGraphicsProxyWidget use the following code:

    Qt Code:
    1. QGraphicsScene *scene = new QGraphicsScene(0, 0, 800, 600);
    2. QGraphicsView *view = new QGraphicsView(scene);
    3. QAxWidget *widget = new QAxWidget();
    4. widget->setControl(QString::fromUtf8("{6BF52A52-394A-11d3-B153-00C04F79FAA6}")); //Windows Media Player CLSID or Other ActiveX CLSID
    5. QGraphicsProxyWidget *proxy = scene->addWidget(widget);
    6. proxy->setFlags(QGraphicsItem::ItemIsFocusable | QGraphicsItem::ItemIsSelectable);
    7. view->setScene(scene);
    8. view->show();
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    now, any operation on this widget is invalid.just like the widget is disabled. Any suggestions what I have to do?

    Best regards,

    RTFM: From QGraphicsScene::addWidget:

    Note that widgets with the Qt::WA_PaintOnScreen widget attribute set and widgets that wrap an external application or controller are not supported. Examples are QGLWidget and QAxWidget.
