PyQt5 textedit codepage

  • position_list, result_list = get_one_image_result(self.file_name[0][self.curFileIndex])
    strResult = self.dealRecogResultList(result_list)
    f = open(self.file_name[0][self.curFileIndex] + '.txt', 'w', encoding="utf-8")
    #outText = strResult.decode('utf-8')
    self.plainTextEdit_result.insertPlainText(strResul t)

    It's a application for windows desktop, i use a textedit to display some Chinese minority language characters, like:??????????????????????????.
    But it only displays some small black pieces.Even I use ctrl+C and ctrl+V to copy some characters from notepad to textedit, it displays the same small black pieces.
    PyQt5 cannot show this characters at all?

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Are you using a font that supports these characters ?

  • @SGaist
    Thank for your reply. The problem is solved.
    It's my fault, i tried wrong font: self.setFont(QFont("宋体", 12))
    This font can display the characters correctly in notepad, but I realized this font does not support this character(the windows system is processed adaptively).
    So I download proprietary font and set it: self.plainTextEdit_result.setFont(QFont("hope", 12))
    and the problem is solved.
