    Exclamation Not getting keyPressEvent in my class?

    When windowdiplayed( show() ), without clicking the window I am not getting keyPressEvent(-)
    void class::keyPressEvent( QKeyEvent *e ){
    ----
    ----
    }
    So is there any way to get the keyPressEvent() without clicking on my Dialog/Window.
    Thanks in advance.

    A common pattern used for non-modal dialogs, especialy those which are kept around and re-shown later is this

    Qt Code:
    1. dialog->show(); // show it if hidden
    2. dialog->raise(); // move it on top of sibling windows
    3. dialog->activateWindow(); // make it the active sub window
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    Cheers,

    So is there any way to get the keyPressEvent() without clicking on my Dialog/Window
    Your operating system/window manager will only send key strokes to your application if it currently has focus. Your dialog will only received keystrokes destined for your application if it is the currently focussed window in your application. Clicking on the dialog gives it that focus, as does calling activateWindow().

    Perhaps you need to describe what you are trying to achieve and/or provide a complete, minimal program that demonstrates the problem.
