    Default QDockWidget inside QDockWidget

    Is it possible to add QDockWidget inside QDockWidget?
    I want an array of widgets (not tabs...all visible) inside a dock widget which can be floated together as a single widget. Currently I am using QSplitterinside QDockWidget. I want to enhance it with the capability of floating individual widgets also. How to do this?

    I think you can do that by having multiple dockwidgets at the same dock area.
    Dockwidgets can be tabbed and below/beside each other when docked into the same area.

    Check for example Qt Designer or Qt assistant.

    Cheers,

    I think the OP wants to be able to undock the entire content of a dock area (i.e. multiple stacked dock widgets) into a single floating super-dockwidget. The super-dockwidget should also allow undocking/docking of the dock widgets it contains. This is not possible out of the box. You might be a be to fake it with second top-level QMainWindow if it will allow dock widget docking (don't know, never tried).
