View Full Version : QImage on QPushButton

11th May 2011, 08:45
Hi, i used QPixmap and QImage to load an image into a label. The problem here is that i have no clicked() as signal to connect it. Another user suggested me to use QPushbuttn and set it to flat, so i used QIcon to add che image, but doing this the image is only a little icon. Is there the possibility to enlarge it, or another class to use instead the QIcon?

You could try calling setIconSize (http://doc.qt.nokia.com/4.7/qabstractbutton.html#iconSize-prop) on your button.

Use QAbstractButton::iconSize. Or stick to the label and add your own click signal reimplementing the mouse press and release event.

In some other forum a user realised the answer to be "Ah, sorry. So it really is as simple as inheriting from [that is: subclassing] a QLabel and reimplementing the mousePressedEvent or mouseReleaseEvent." -- you can call your custom signal from those.

Damn...so simple. Sometimes i'm able to arrange very complex things, and sometimes i overlook simple stuff like this.
However, thanks.
