[SOLVED]Multiple text lines in QListView

  • Hi All,

    I want to display multiple lines of text in a QListview. I have tried for that with custom delegate, but it doesn't working.
    My code is here...

    .h file is...
    @#ifndef WARP_H
    #define WARP_H

    #include <QtGui/QDialog>
    #include <QItemDelegate>

    class wrap : public QDialog

    wrap(QWidget *parent = 0, Qt::WFlags flags = 0);


    class delegate : public QItemDelegate

    delegate(QObject* = NULL);
    virtual void paint(QPainter*, const QStyleOptionViewItem&, const QModelIndex&) const;
    virtual QSize sizeHint(const QStyleOptionViewItem&, const QModelIndex&) const;


    #endif // WARP_H
    .cpp file is
    @#include "wrap.h"
    #include <QStringListModel>
    #include <QPainter>
    #include <QListView>

    wrap::wrap(QWidget *parent, Qt::WFlags flags)
    : QDialog(parent, flags)
    setWindowTitle("ListView Custom Delegate");

    QStringListModel *mdl = new QStringListModel();
    QStringList list;
    QListView *listView = new QListView(this);
    (list) << "long word 1longword1lo ngword2l ongword2";
    (list) << "long word 2 long word 2";
    (list) << "long word 1 long word 2longwor d1longwor d2lon gword2";
    (list) << "long word 1 long word 2long word1lon gword2longword2";
    (list) << "longwor d1longwo d2longw ord2longword 1lon word2longw ord2";
    (list) << "long word 1";
    (list) << "longwor d1l ongword2l ongword1 longword 2longwo rd2";
    (list) << "3+ experience of Linux Kernel Programming /Linux Device Driver/Open source application porting/Back porting of ALG modules to Linux Kernel/Voice Data path optimization and Architectural changes on LINUX based ARM platform";
    (list) << "The <b>QListWidget</b> class provides an item-based list widget."
           << "The <b>QListWidgetItem</b> class provides an item for use with the QListWidget item view class."
           << "The <b>QObject</b> class is the base class of all Qt objects."
           << "Qt's <b>drag and drop</b> infrastructure is fully supported by the model/view framework. Items in lists, tables, and trees can be dragged within the views, and data can be imported and exported as MIME-encoded data.";
    listView->setItemDelegate(new delegate(listView));




    delegate::delegate(QObject* parent)




    void delegate::paint(QPainter *painter, const QStyleOptionViewItem &option, const QModelIndex & index) const

    int width = option.rect.width();
    int height = option.rect.height();
    //QRect rect(option.rect.topLeft(), option.rect.bottomRight());
    QRect timeRect(option.rect.x() + width/2, 0, option.rect.width()/2, height/3);
    QRect messageRect(option.rect.x(), width/2+3,  option.rect.width(), height/2);

    // if (option.state & QStyle::State_Selected)
    // painter->fillRect(rect, option.palette.highlight());

    QRect boundryRect(option.rect.topLeft(), option.rect.bottomRight());
    boundryRect.setRight(messageRect.right() - 10);
    boundryRect.setTop(messageRect.top() + 1);
       //painter->drawLine(rect.topLeft(), rect.topRight());
    messageRect.setLeft(messageRect.left() + 2);
    messageRect.setTop(messageRect.top() + 2);
    messageRect.setRight(messageRect.right() - 12);

    painter->drawText(timeRect, Qt::AlignRight , "Time Is Here");

    painter->drawText(messageRect,  Qt::AlignLeft | Qt::TextWordWrap , index.data().toString());

    // painter->drawText(option.rect, Qt::AlignLeft | Qt::TextWordWrap , index.data().toString());
    //painter->drawText(rect, Qt::AlignTop |Qt::AlignRight , "Time Is Here");

    QSize delegate::sizeHint(const QStyleOptionViewItem& option, const QModelIndex& index) const

    float tw = fm.width(text);
    float ratio = tw/rw;
    int lines = int(ratio) + 1;
    return QSize(p->width(),lines*fm.height());*/
    QAbstractItemView *view = dynamic_cast<QAbstractItemView*>(parent());
        QFontMetricsF fontMetrics(view->fontMetrics());
        QString str = index.data().toString().trimmed();
        QStringList words = str.split(QChar(' '));
        QRectF boundingRect = fontMetrics.boundingRect(str);
        int width = view->viewport()->width();
        int times = 0;
        while (words.size() > 0) {
            qreal lineWidth = 0;
            bool enoughSpace = true;
            do {
                QString word = words.first();
                qreal wordWidth = fontMetrics.width(word);
                if (wordWidth + lineWidth < width)
                    lineWidth += wordWidth;
                    lineWidth += fontMetrics.width(QChar(' '));
                } else
                    enoughSpace = false;
            } while (enoughSpace && words.size() > 0);
        return QSize(width, boundingRect.height() * times - times + 5);
