hi, I'm trying to get familiar with the QGraphics classes. I have made
2 custom subclasses. The main one is a QGraphicsScene subclass and in
it i have an instance of a QGraphicsItem subclass. These are my 2
reimplimented classes. I need the QGraphicsItem instance to respond to
user input (mouse and keyboard). Looking at the docs i have set these
properties in its init method:


then i print

the print returns False and my events like keyPressEvent are ignored
as the Item doesn't have focus. Please can anyone tell me or show me
an example of making a QGraphicsItem respond to user input?
