    Hi Matthias-

    Used your screenshot HTML example to create browser dialog.
    Can you please provide example how to add button\checkbox etc?

    Thanks, Itamar

    Hi Itamar,

    the browser approach is not well suited for doing interactive dialogs with more than just links.

    The "custom dialog" example https://klayout.de/rba_examples.html#example8 shows a simple example. You need some knowledge about Qt however.

    Hi Matthias-

    I changed my code to use Qt instead of HTML.
    While most of the Qt is straightforward and manageable, I still have issue adding button with an image icon.
    Maybe you can provide example of how to assign an icon to a Qt button?

    Thanks much,

    Hi Itamar,

    where do you want to get the image icon from?

    The usual Qt way is to use resource files. There is a discussion about using resource files and KLayout's Qt binding here in the forum: http://klayout.de/forum/comments.php?DiscussionID=636.

    Regards,

    Matthias

    Hi Matthias-

    I would like to get the image icon from a snapshot of main window, then assign it to a certain pushButton.
    After that, get another snapshot and assign it to different pushbutton, etc.

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    If you mean a layout snapshot, then LayoutView#get_image is the method you are looking for.

    I don't know precisely what you plan to do, but here is some code to play with:

    # Shows a dialog with a "Snapshot" button that takes screenshots and
    # lines them up as push buttons
    
    dialog = RBA::QDialog::new
    
    vlayout = RBA::QVBoxLayout::new(dialog)
    
    upper_frame = RBA::QFrame::new(dialog)
    sp = upper_frame.sizePolicy
    sp.setVerticalStretch(1)
    upper_frame.setSizePolicy(sp)
    
    upper_hlayout = RBA::QHBoxLayout::new(lower_frame)
    upper_frame.setLayout(upper_hlayout)
    
    vlayout.addWidget(upper_frame)
    
    lower_frame = RBA::QFrame::new(dialog)
    
    vlayout.addWidget(lower_frame)
    
    lower_hlayout = RBA::QHBoxLayout::new(lower_frame)
    
    snapshot_button = RBA::QPushButton::new(lower_frame)
    snapshot_button.setText("Snapshot")
    lower_hlayout.addWidget(snapshot_button)
    snapshot_button.clicked do 
    
      lv = RBA::LayoutView::current
      if lv
        # Get an image with 100x100 pixels
        snapshot_image = lv.get_image(100, 100)
        snapshot_button = RBA::QPushButton::new(upper_frame)
        snapshot_button.setIconSize(RBA::QSize::new(snapshot_image.width, snapshot_image.height))
        snapshot_button.setIcon(RBA::QIcon::new(RBA::QPixmap::fromImage(snapshot_image)))
        upper_hlayout.addWidget(snapshot_button)
      end
    
    end
    
    lower_hlayout.addStretch(1)
    
    close_button = RBA::QPushButton::new(lower_frame)
    close_button.setText("Close")
    lower_hlayout.addWidget(close_button)
    close_button.clicked do 
      dialog.hide
    end
    
    dialog.show
