Input method behavior of QComboBox

  • about QComboBox in editable mode
    when inputting a japanese text into a QComboBox
    the input method won't work after i did a pull down action once more
    it doesn't show candidate Kanji fot the input Hirakan string even if I pushed the space-Bar

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Does it work properly for other languages like english ?

  • Hi,
    Two things jump to mind. Is there a validator set? The comboBox like all other QString related widgets use a UTF-16 format, but when UTF32 is inserted, it gets converted to two UTF-16 chars, so that shouldn't be a problem.
    Did you set a translator? Or is your OS set on english?? The default translator is set to your system language. On the other hand, a combobox will not try to translate, so it would accept any given string.
    Maybe post your code, that might help.
