How to resize QTextEdit when append long text?



  • My QTextEdit now expand follow to mainwindow.
    I want to resize QTextEdit to fit long text.
    How to do that?



  • Below the QTextEdit place a vertical spacer. Place both in a horizontal layout. This will make the QTextEdit increase/decrease with added/removed text and makes the size of the QTextEdit dependant of the substance. Also when MainWindow resizes, it will follow. Don't forget to set a minimumsize hint for the QTextEdit to indicate a minium size to shrink to.
