    Post Skype style list.

    Hey guys,

    I would like to create a QListWidget like the one in Skype :



    Basically it's a standard list,
    when clicking on a cell it expands to show some neat informations about the user.

    Any idea on how should I best proceed ? Class reimplementation ? Where should I start ?

    Thanks.

    I'd say that you want to implement a delegate for drawing list items in a list view. This means that you want to look at QAbstractItemDelegate.

    If it expands upon click you might also do it with a tree view.

    The way that I see it, it's some kind of "special" QListView.

    Except that when you click on one item it expands in one "widget" with several buttons and infos.

    So I guess my question is :
    how to make fit a fully featured widget in a QListView ?

    You can use setIndexWidget to do that. But remember that Skype uses Qt3 and we're talking about Qt4, so there are differences. I wouldn't stick a widget there, but go for the delegate approach as already suggested. You can do it with both QListView or QTreeView, the choice is yours.
