Floating windows has an additional title bar partially visible

4 months 2 weeks ago #1 by Kihana
I'm using docking 3.8.0 (built with msvc2019 64 bit) and when my docks are floating the min/max/close buttons are visible above the floating dock's title bar.

I have tried setting my underlying widget with Qt::FramelessWindowHint, but it's still visible. What are the steps to make this invisible?

See attached image.

Could you attach screenshot what buttons you need to hide and code snippet that you tried?

See the original message for the attached screenshot with a red arrow pointing the min/max/close buttons they are cut off but they are visible.

For the underlying dock's widget I used:
setWindowFlags(Qt::Window | Qt::FramelessWindowHint);

I meant what object are you using to apply this flag and how do you get it - DockMainWindow, DockWindow, DockWidgetPanel?

I have a function that passes in the custom QWidget when it is loaded/started. In the constructor of the custom QWidget I'd call setWindowFlags(...).

DockWidgetPanel* panel = nullptr;

panel = m_dockPanelManager->addDockPanel(name, Qtitan::InsideDockPanelArea, nullptr);
panel->setWidget(widget);

DockWidgetPanel it is not a top level window that can holds this flag. As far as i understand the task, you need to customize the titlebar of the dock panel. There is a method for this: DockWidgetPanel::setTitleBar(anyQWidget);

Use the code below to create a custom title bar:
class CustomTitleBar : public QWidget
{
public:
    CustomTitleBar() : QWidget() {
        QHBoxLayout* layout = new QHBoxLayout(this);
        QPushButton* b = new QPushButton();
        b->setText(tr("New Button"));
        layout->addWidget(b, 1, Qt::AlignRight);
        layout->addSpacing(0);
        layout->setContentsMargins(QMargins());
    }
    
    virtual QSize minimumSizeHint() const
    {
        return QSize(30, 30);
    }
private:
protected:
};

DockWidgetPanel* panel1 = dockPanelManager()->addDockPanel(tr("Panel 1"), Qtitan::LeftDockPanelArea);
QWidget* anyWidget = new CustomTitleBar();
panel1->setTitleBar(anyWidget);



I think it should help.
