QTextEdit doesnt display text
Qnoobish last edited by
I am using the following constructor in a class named LogArea which inherits from QTextEdit.
: QTextEdit( Parent)
Then somewhere else I am placing a LogArea object to a QDockWidget, and then adding the DockWidget to my QMainWindow object.
@QDockWidget *dock = new QDockWidget(this); //where this is my QMainWindow object.
m_poLogArea = new LogArea(dock);
addDockWidget (Qt::BottomDockWidgetArea, dock);@
Then when I run this I can see my QTextEdit widget displayed inside a QDockWidget which I can move and dock at will.
But...in my QTextEdit Widget I am not able to append or insert any text. All I see is an empty(as in all blank) QTextEdit widget with no cursor nor text.
I've checked the signal textChanged of QTextEdit and this signal is emitted when I click my QTextEdit widget and type characters, but still I am not able to see any text on it.
Also I've changed the text color and font but still no success. And also if I try to this same approach with a different widget like QLabel, all its member functions work like a charm, but I am not able to to the same with QTextEdit for some reason :|
Thanks in advance.
