Emit signal by clicking on the part of the text

  • I have an abstract in Text item and I need to emit the signal when I click on some phrase in this text:

    Text {
        id: textFirst
        Layout.fillWidth: true
        width: parent.width
        text: qsTr("Some long part of text and I need to emit signal by clicking on THIS")
        font.pointSize: 14
        wrapMode: Text.Wrap

    So, the signal should be emitted when I click on "THIS". The window, where this Text located on is resizable, so I can't calculate the location of "THIS" beforehand. So, does it possible to do it?

    PS I found that it possible to add hyperlinks, but emitting signals is a bit different

    Thanks for your help!

  • No need to calculate the position, use linkActivated signal handler https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qml-qtquick-text.html#linkActivated-signal
