the incorrect line is:
GeneralLayout.addWidget(self.summaryBox, 3, 0)
this line needs to be changed to:
GeneralLayout.addWidget(self.summaryBoxScroll, 3, 0)
Because the summaryBox is a child of the Scroll Area, summaryBoxScroll
and you should add only the top item.
But the result is very ugly, you have a scroll area, which contains the
group box. Instead I would put the scroll area into the group box:
self.summaryBox = QGroupBox("Project Management Layout")
self.summaryBoxTopLayout = QVBoxLayout()
self.summaryBoxTopLayout.setContentsMargins(1, 1, 1, 1)
self.summaryBoxScroll = QScrollArea()
self.summaryBoxTopWidget = QWidget()
self.summaryBoxLayout = QFormLayout(self.summaryBoxTopWidget)
Further you should increase the initial frame size a bit.
PS: if you would bother me, i wouldn't help you. I am happy that I can
