QPlainTextEdit syntax highlighting mouse selections

  • I am using a QPlainTextEdit control with syntax highlighting enabled to highlight javascript. I am finding that mouse selections do not work as expected, for example if I have the line:

    @// get filenames from upload@

    and double click the word "get" then the word "upload" gets selected.

    Another example, if I have the line:

    @var x = Test.function();@

    This one exhibits a number of issues.

    1. When I click anywhere between "var" and "." it will place the cursor after after the period ".".
    2. When I click and drag from the Beginning of "Test" to the end of that line the only thing that gets selected is "function();"

    Is there any way around this? Thanks.
