Re: Beyond the Examples


if I understand your problem, your window wich opens a secondary window,
needs to be instantiated in the main window.
So you could connect a signal in the mainwindow wich executes a slot in
the sec-window.

In the basics that should work. I have solved problems like this, with
this solution in earlier projects.

If you need to interact with the widgets, you can write get and set
methods wich do what you want with the widgets in the other window.

Perhaps there are better solutions, but this is how I did it.

Many greetings
