    Default add items to QtabWidget

    ive created a QtabWidget() with 2 tabs.
    i also have a scroll area set inside a gridlayout.

    I'm trying to add the scrollarea to tab1 of the tabWidget.

    i tried using .setlayout, but that doesnt seem to work. My scroll area just sits on top of the tabs. How do I add items to Tab1?

    Qt Code:
    1. self.myTab = QTabWidget()
    2. self.tab1 = QWidget()
    3. self.tab2 = QWidget()
    4.  
    5. self.myTab.addTab(self.tab1, "TAB1")
    6. self.myTab.addTab(self.tab2, "TAB2")
    7.  
    8. self.myScrollArea = QScrollArea()
    9. self.myScrollArea_Container = QWidget()
    10. self.myScrollArea_GridLayout = QGridLayout()
    11.  
    12. self.myScrollArea_Container.setLayout(gridlayout with some stuff)
    13. self.myScrollArea.setWidget(self.myScrollArea_Container)
    14. self.myScrollArea_GridLayout.addWidget(self.myScrollArea)
    15.  
    16. self.myTab.setLayout(self.myScrollArea_GridLayout)
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    In the attached pic, you can see the issue where the scrollArea isnt inside, but sitting ontop of the tabs

    You are calling setLayout on the tab widget. Why?

    Don't you want the scroll area on one of the pages?

    I called setLayout because it seemed like the only member function that might have worked. The only other two was addtab and InsertTab, which I guess, adds more tabs. You mentioned Pages, is that what the body is called? I don't see anything in the members that seems like it will addPage, or setPageContents kinda thing. What do I use to add my scrollLayout to the tab body area?

    Thanks again

    But it is a function on the tab widget, not on one of its tabs/pages.
    So clearly not applicable in a situation where you want to address a specific tab, right?

    A tab widget has several pages/tabs.

    You set it on the widget that you use as the page for the respective tab.

    Or,even simpler, add the scrollarea directly as a tab.
