Overview

This code snippet demonstrates how to allow user to select a color of his choice and use it as either a background or foreground color in Qt for S60.

Qt provides a QColorDialog class for performing this task.

Source File

#include "dialogcolor.h"
 
dialogcolor::dialogcolor(QWidget *parent)
: QDialog(parent)
{
button = new QPushButton("Select Color", this);
connect(button, SIGNAL(clicked()), this, SLOT(setcolor()));
 
colorLabel =new QLabel(this);
layout = new QVBoxLayout(this);
layout->addWidget(button);
layout->addWidget(colorLabel);
setLayout(layout);
}
 
dialogcolor::~dialogcolor()
{
// No need to delete any object that got a parent that is properly deleted.
}
void dialogcolor::setcolor()
{
QColor color = QColorDialog::getColor(Qt::green, this);
if (color.isValid())
{
colorLabel->setText(color.name());
colorLabel->setPalette(QPalette(color));
colorLabel->setAutoFillBackground(true);
}
}
