[SOLVED] QPainter, drawText and HTML

  • Hi,

    I was wondering if QPainter::drawText was capable of marking up any HTML that was passed to it. My specific situation is that we have a custom-designed tooltip being drawn with QPainter and the non-breaking space characters we pass to the drawText function are not being marked up. Can anyone shed some light on this please?

  • No, QPainter::drawText does not support HTML. You will need to use QTextDocument for that if limited HTML support is enough for you, or QWebPage if you need "all" of HTML.

  • Hi Andre,

    Thanks a lot. I''l do that.
