Widget signals are only valid under the first Application. When I remove widget from layout of first application then add to another layout that belongs to different application, all signals are lost.

Hi,

Moving widgets between WApplications is not supported by Wt. We've never even tried to do it, and Wt assumes in a lot of places that widgets are not moved between WApplications. It would probably require a lot of effort to change this.

The way to "move" a widget from WApplication to WApplication is simply to store the way the original widget is configured, remove that widget, and create a new widget. Note that in order to modify the widget tree of an application, you need to grab its update lock.

So, sorry, this won't be fixed, but I hope my explanation helps.

Regards,

Roel
