Qt Mac Tips

My team has been work­ing on port­ing some PyQt stuff to Mac OS­X, and we have run in­to sev­er­al Qt bugs, sad­ly. Here are two, and the work­arounds we found.

Na­tive di­alogs are bro­ken.

Us­ing QFile­Di­a­­tEx­ist­ingDi­rec­to­ry we no­ticed the fol­low­ing symp­tom­s:

  • If you do noth­ing, the di­a­log went away on its own af­ter about 20 sec­ond­s.

  • Af­ter you used it on­ce, it may pop up and dis­­ap­­pear im­me­di­ate­­ly. Or not.

So­lu­tion: use the Don­tUse­N­a­tive­Di­a­log op­tion.

Wid­gets in QTreeWid­getItems don't scrol­l.

When you use Wid­gets in­side the items of a QTreeWid­get (which I know, is not a com­mon case, but hey, it hap­pen­s), the wid­gets don't scroll with the item­s.

Solution: use the -graph­ic­ssys­tem raster options. You can even inject them into argv if the platform is darwin.

che robert... digo si usas en un sistema darwin, que no tiene cocoa (onda darwin con gnome) funciona igual con la opcion -graphicssystem raster ?

Nunca oí de alguien que *use* darwin con gnome :-)
Sí debería andar igual, esa opción anda en todas las plataformas.

You don't even say which version of Qt this is refering to,

Roberto Alsina / 2012-08-28 18:09:

Latest as of the moment it was posted: 4.8.2

However, AFAIK both bugs affect all Qt 4.x versions.

Also, please work on your manners, you come accross as impolite.

Roberto Alsina / 2012-12-16 23:15:

It just sounds like a complain.
