How to Bring the Widget Bring to front in Qt?
Please have a look at this screenshot:
The circles are custom controls. When I click a control, I need to bring the widget to the front. Ex. if I click the second circle it should look like this:
When the control is clicked I am able to get the sender (i.e. the control). Only thing is how to bring the object to the front.
Please help me fix this issue.
Have you tried QWidget::raise()?
Raises this widget to the top of the parent widget's stack. After this call the widget will be visually in front of any overlapping sibling widgets. Note: When using activateWindow(), you can call this function to ensure that the window is stacked on top.
So the pattern I usually use that will ensure a window is shown, brought to the front of sibling widgets and brought in front of other applications is:
widget->show(); widget->activateWindow(); widget->raise();
