I also tried
as well as TQTWidget(panel1.handle).widget
but nothing works (the other application disappears but it doesn't show
on my form/panel)

I tried, qt4 only, so no qt5

it's tough (firefox is special since firefox.exe isn't directly the
owner of its window but it spawns other instances that in turn show the
window and it always shows the window borders, no matter what api you
try to avoid that) but I managed to do it under windows.
