Setting the text of QLabel to the color of a Pixmap
I have been struggling to set the text of my QLabel to the color and texture of a Pixmap. I want the text in the label to have a gold color with a shiny tinge. So I loaded a Pixmap image into the resources and created a Painter event on the QLabel. In the paint event I entered the following code:
void labelPaint::paintEvent(QPaintEvent *)
QPixmap Pixmap(":/gold.jpg"); brush.setTexture(Pixmap); brush.setPixmap(Pixmap); QPainter painter(this); painter.setFont(QFont("Times New Roman", 30)); painter.setBrush(brush); QString myString("some string"); painter.drawText(510,40,myString);
And I still get the same plain black color as my text. Note that I used both setTexture and setPixmap in my atttempt.
Thank in advance
For drawing lines, outlines and text QPainter uses a pen. Brush is for filling shapes and paths. So instead of changing the brush of the painter change the brush of the pen of the painter (yeah, I know :) ).
Great, thank you it worked!
