FramelessHelper

If you are using part of or all the code from this repository in your own projects, it's my pleasure and I'm happy that it can help you. But I hope you can tell me the URL of the homepage or repository of your projects, whether your projects are close-sourced or commercial products do not matter. I'll link to your homepage or repository in this README file. It would be much better if you can provide me some screenshots of your software for demonstration.

如果您正在使用此项目的部分或全部代码,这是我的荣幸,我很高兴能帮到您,但我同时也希望,您能将您项目的首页或仓库的网址告诉我(闭源或收费都没关系),我将在这个自述文件中链接到您所提供的网址,以供展示。如果您能一并提供一些软件运行时的截图,那就更好了。

Usage

#include "framelesswindowsmanager.h"
#include 

int main(int argc, char *argv[]) { QWidget widget; // Qt's internal function. Make sure it's a top level window. widget.createWinId(); // Do this before the widget is shown. FramelessWindowsManager::addWindow(widget.windowHandle()); widget.show(); }

Please refer to the QWidget example for more detailed information.

Ignore areas and etc

// Only **TOP LEVEL** QWidgets and QWindows are supported.
QMainWindow *mainWindow = new QMainWindow;
// Qt's internal function. Make sure it's a top level window.
mainWindow->createWinId();
QWindow *win = mainWindow->windowHandle();
// Disable resizing of the given window. Resizing is enabled by default.
FramelessWindowsManager::setResizable(win, false);
// All the following values should not be DPI-aware, just use the
// original numbers, assuming the scale factor is 1.0, don't scale
// them yourself, this code will do the scaling according to DPI
// internally and automatically.
// Maximum window size
win->setMaximumSize(1280, 720);
// Minimum window size
win->setMinimumSize(800, 540);
// The **POINTER** of a QWidget or QQuickItem
FramelessWindowsManager::addIgnoreObject(win, ui->pushButton_minimize);

Supported Platforms

Win32

Windows 7 ~ 10, 32 bit & 64 bit.

The code itself should be able to work on Windows Vista in theory, but Qt5 has dropped Vista support long time ago. And Qt6 will only support Win10.

UNIX

A not too old version of Linux and macOS, 32 bit & 64 bit.
