    Default Disable Scroll in QGraphicsview

    Hi there,

    I want to scroll a Scene in QGraphicsView with external contol. So i want to disable scroll event with keys an wheel directly in the QGraphicsView class.

    Hi, you could install an event filter and catch the key and wheel events there. The documentation for QObject::installEventFilter() shows an example how to "eat" an event.

    Qt Code:
    1. class MyClass : public QGraphicsScene
    2. {
    3. public:
    4. MyClass(QObject *parent = nullptr);
    5. bool eventFilter(QObject *obj, QEvent *event) override;
    6. };
    8. MyClass::MyClass(QObject *parent) :
    9. {
    10. this->installEventFilter(this);
    11. }
    14. bool MyClass::eventFilter(QObject *obj, QEvent *event)
    15. {
    16. if (event->type() == QEvent::GraphicsSceneWheel)
    17. {
    18. // QWheelEvent *wheelEvent = static_cast<QWheelEvent*>(event);
    19. return true;
    20. }
    21. else
    22. {
    23. // standard event processing
    24. return QObject::eventFilter(obj, event);
    25. }
    26. }

    I have installed an event filter in my inherited class "Myclass". But it has no effect.

    The wheel event is still active, if I scroll the mouse wheel in the scene.

    I have installed an event filter in my inherited class "Myclass". But it has no effect.
    Your class inherits from QGraphicsScene, which is simply a container for QGraphicsItem instances. It has no visual representation on screen and therefore has no mouse, wheel, or any other input event associated with it.

    You probably want to install your event filter on QGraphicsView (and not on a class derived from it, as you have done with your MyClass implementation). It makes no sense to create and install an event filter on an instance of a class itself - if you are going to derive from a class, then simply override the base class methods for the events you want to handle.

    The purpose of an event filter is so you can watch events occurring in an instance of one class from a different class. So in your case, you should create the event filter method in your MainWindow class (for example) and install it on your QGraphicsView class.
