    Default Qt / PyQt - Overlay widget

    How would I go about making a overlay widget with qt?

    I've considered using a QPaintEvent or a QGraphicsScene, but I want to be able to add widgets and for the widget to not occupy space in a layout, causing other widgets to shift when the popup appears.

    You could try

    1) QMenu with QWidgetActions
    2) QDialog with QListView and custom item delegate

    Cheers,
