Thread: Mouse press

  1. #1

    Default Mouse press

    I want to register when the mouse is pressed and released on a QTableWidget. There are signals only for pressed, not released. Therefore I use mousePressEvent and mouseReleaseEvent instead.

    Qt Code:
    1. protected:
    2. void mousePressEvent(QMouseEvent * event);
    3. void mouseReleaseEvent(QMouseEvent * event);
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    Qt Code:
    1. void MyWidget::mousePressEvent(QMouseEvent *event)
    2. {
    3. qDebug() << "Pressed";
    4. }
    6. void MyWidget::mouseReleaseEvent(QMouseEvent *event)
    7. {
    8. qDebug() << "Released";
    9. }
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    It prints "Released" when the left, right or middle mouse button is released over the table. However, it prints "Pressed" only when the right or middle button is pressed.

    What could be wrong? How can I register when the left button is pressed?

    Default Re: Mouse press

    And what is "MyWidget"? Is it a widget derived from QTableWidget?

    If MyWidget is derived from QTableWidget, it is possible that the base class event handler (QTableWidget::mousePressEvent()) is being called first and is eating the event.

    You could verify this by adding an event filter to the class that creates your MyWidget instance, and installing it on the MyWidget instance. An event filter will receive all events for the widget it is installed on -before- they are sent to the widget for handling. See QObject::installEventFilter() if you don't know how event filters work. Be sure to return false from your event filter if you want the table widget to keep working.
