    Default Highlighting a set of controls on mouse hover.

    Hi
    I am developing an existing GUI application which is developed in C# to QT.
    I want to highlight a set of controls i.e one check box and a push button on mouse hover i.e when mouse is over any of these controls then both check box and push button both gets highlited or a round box will highlight both of them.
    I c# StackPanel is used to group items together. Is there any stackpanel equivalent in QT or is there any other way to highlight group a set of controls.
    Thanks.

    QWidget with a QVBoxLayout or QHBoxLayout, depending on which orientation you want the child widgets to be arranged in.

    Cheers,

    Layouts won't exhibit the highlighting behavior the OP is asking for. QGroupBox might be the closest thing to this since it provides a border, but I am not sure if it supports enter / leave highlighting by default or if you need to derive from it and override mouse enter and leave even handlers in order to implement highlighting.
