TextEdit Colored Texts or StatusBar Colored Texts



  • Hi, I have the following code to display Red, Green, Blue of a particular pixel in an image.

    ui->textEdit->append(QString("RED = %1, GREEN = %2, BLUE = %3").arg(rgb.red()).arg(rgb.green()).arg(rgb.blue()));
    

    However, the text that came out is a bit ugly.

    How can I set the color? I want to display in TextEdit that I have or the StatusBar of my mainwindow.

    Edit: I want it to be something like this

  • @Stevendragoes Hi,

    You can use html:

     QString("<font color=\"#FF0000\">RED = %1</font>, <font color=\"#00FF00\">GREEN = %2</font>, <font color=\"#0000FF\">BLUE = %3</font>").arg(rgb.red()).arg(rgb.green()).arg(rgb.blue());
    


  • QColor rgb;
        ui->textEdit->append(QString("<font color=\"red\">RED, </font>"
                                     "<font color=\"green\">GREEN, </font>"
                                     "<font color=\"blue\">BLUE </font>"));
        ui->textEdit->append(QString("<font color=%1>RED, </font>"
                                     "<font color=%2>GREEN, </font>"
                                     "<font color=%3>BLUE </font>")
                             .arg(rgb.fromRgb(255,0,0).name())
                             .arg(rgb.fromRgb(0,255,0).name())
                             .arg(rgb.fromRgb(0,0,255).name()));
        ui->textEdit->append(QString("<font color=%1>RED, </font>"
                                     "<font color=%2>GREEN, </font>"
                                     "<font color=%3>BLUE </font>")
                             .arg("#ff0000")
                             .arg("#00ff00")
                             .arg("#0000ff"));
