Hi
I need to implement swiping between buttons by the user hand in touch screen (something similar to pictures paging in iPhone/android). I am working on Qt widget project on Linux machine (Qt embedded).
I need to develop 2 rows (every row has 3 buttons ) and the user shall swipe between them.
Is the preferred way is gestures?
Does someone know a good example for swiping a list of widgets?

You could try putting the buttons on a widget, then putting that widget in a scroll view.

Just to understand: you mean putting the buttons in widget control from the tool box?
and by saying scrol view you mean scroll area?

Yes, QScrollArea, sorry.

It works on a single widget, so you first have to add your buttons to a container widget.

Few qusetions before I getting started:
Is the scrollbar will be visible?
Is it similar to scroll through the images on a smartphone?

Is the scrollbar will be visible?

Your decision



Is it similar to scroll through the images on a smartphone?

There are a lot of different ways to scroll through images on a smartphone: gallery lists or tables, cover art, single images, lists of files, etc.

But if your goal is to make a phone/tablet like interface, then you will be better off using QtQuick instead of QtWidgets.
