Qml Text contain special characters

  • I try to create a Text in qml that include special characters such as:
    \r - carriage return
    \f - form feed
    \b - backspace

    but i get latin characters instead. my encoding is UTF- 8

    @Text {
    id: myText
    text: "Hello\rWorld"

    this create a latin character of r.
    what is wrong?

  • It's possible some of these are not supported by the Text element itself (\n, \t, ", ', \ should all work). I'd recommend adding a suggestion to http://bugreports.qt-project.org to have this looked into further.


  • TextInput and TextEdit act different for other special characters.
