Keeping drop down galleries open after item select

9 years 4 days ago #1 by Matthias Zangl
Hi,

in our application we have a drop down gallery to select and item and beneath some buttons to do something with the item selected (after selecting it).

By default the gallery is closed after selection of an item.

We researched the source code and found this place
void RibbonGallery::mouseReleaseEvent(QMouseEvent* event)
{
    QTN_D(RibbonGallery);
    if (d.pressed_ || (/*parentWidget()->getPosition() == BarPopup &&*/ isItemSelected()))
    {
        d.pressed_ = false;
        d.repaintItems();

        int index = hitTestItem(event->pos());
        if (index != -1)
        {
            d.repaintItems();
            emit itemSelectionChanged();
            emit itemClicked(getItem(index));

//*********************************************************************************************
// insert a new property and check here if it is set should solve the problem

            if (OfficePopupMenu* popupBar = qobject_cast<OfficePopupMenu*>(parentWidget()))
                popupBar->close();

//*********************************************************************************************
        }
    }
}


We have 2 questions regarding this:

1. Is this the right place to adopt this behaviour?

2. Does it make sense for you to offer this functionality by setting a flag?

thanks,
Matthias
