[PyQt] SplashScreen and mousePressEvent

The splashscreen is probably not what you want.  You can make a QFrame and apply the following styles

 QFrame( parent, Qt.X11BypassWindowManagerHint | Qt.FramelessWindowHint |
                             Qt.WindowStaysOnTopHint       | Qt.Tool )

You will need to override the mouseClickEvent to close this window.

To place it you can get the mouse's x,y position when right clicking on the tree node and create the frame (with the appropriate images inside) and then place it appropriately.

Ok. Thanks a lot for the informations. I've tried another method and it
works well. Indeed I use a SplashScreen to show a single picture
associated to a node in a TreeWidget when the user does a right click on it.

A last question. Is it possible to choose the position where the
SplashScreen appears ?
