[SOLVED] Extract text block from QGraphicsTextItem based on QPointF
I'm trying to find out a way to extract the word at position <x,y> of a QGraphicsTextItem.
I looking for a method on the documentation, but it seems that there is no method that return the character or the word given a <x,y> position.
Any suggestions ??
Have you taken a look at QAbstractTextDocumentLayout::hitTest?
I have never tried this, but you can get a QAbstractTextDocumentLayout from the QTextDocument, and the QTextDocument from the QGraphicsTextItem. Should work, if you transform the coordinates correctly.
Yes !! Thank you.
You solved two problems... the one of this thread, and another that I posted in another thread :-)
