QKeyEvent in my app does not work

I want to program a retro snaker that responds to my keyevents, here's my code:

paint.h


#ifndef PAINT_H
#define PAINT_H
#include<QWidget>
#include<QPaintEvent>
#include<QKeyEvent>
#include<QTimer>

class paint:public QWidget
{
Q_OBJECT
public:
paint(QWidget*parent=0);
~paint();
protected:
void paintEvent(QPaintEvent* );
void keypress(QKeyEvent* keyevent);
public slots:
void autorun();
private:
int snake[100][2];
int length;
QTimer *timer;
int flag;
};
#endif


paint.cpp


#include"paint.h"
#include<QtGui>

paint::paint(QWidget*parent):QWidget(parent)
{
flag=1;
snake[0][0]=45;
snake[0][1]=45;
length=4;
timer=new QTimer;
timer->start(1000);
connect(timer,SIGNAL(timeout()),this,SLOT(autorun()));
}

paint::~paint(){}

void paint::paintEvent(QPaintEvent* )
{
QPainter p(this);
p.setWindow(0,0,810,810);
QRectF border(45-20,45-20,16*45+40,16*45+40);
QRectF inter(45,45,16*45,16*45);
p.setPen(Qt::NoPen);
p.setBrush(QBrush(Qt::darkMagenta,Qt::SolidPattern));
p.drawRect(border);
p.setBrush(QBrush(Qt::gray,Qt::SolidPattern));
p.drawRect(inter);//
p.setPen(Qt::NoPen);
for(int i=45;i<=17*45;i+=45)
{
p.drawLine(45,i,17*45,i);
p.drawLine(i,45,i,17*45);
}
p.setPen(QPen(Qt::darkGray,1,Qt::SolidLine,Qt::RoundCap,Qt::RoundJoin));
// for(int i=0;i<length;++i)
{
QRectF snakebody(snake[0][0],snake[0][1],45,45);
p.setBrush(QBrush(Qt::red));
p.drawRect(snakebody);
}
}
void paint::keypress(QKeyEvent* keyevent)
{
qDebug()<<"key"<<endl;
switch(keyevent->key())
{
case Qt::Key_Up:
snake[0][1]=45;
break;
case Qt::Key_Down:
snake[0][1]=720;
break;
case Qt::Key_Left:
snake[0][0]=45;
break;
case Qt::Key_Right:
snake[0][1]=720;
break;
case Qt::Key_Q:
qDebug()<<"Q"<<endl;
break;
}
}
void paint::autorun()
{
snake[0][1]+=45;
if(snake[0][1]>720)
{
snake[0][1]=45;
snake[0][0]+=45;
if(snake[0][0]>720)
{
snake[0][0]=45;
}
}
update();
}


Focus on the
keypress()
function, I wonder that the function does not connect to anything, could it work? Actually it didn't, but I do not know how to activate it. Do I need to do anything else?

Answer

http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-4.8/qwidget.html#keyPressEvent. You need to override keyPressEvent, not create a keyPress function of your own.

So, change

void keypress(QKeyEvent* keyevent);

to

void keyPressEvent(QKeyEvent* keyevent)
