How to see start of text in a narrow combo box?

  • I have a QComboBox which I have populated with addItem() repeatedly, and then selected an item with setCurrentIndex(). The trouble is that some of the text is wider than the width of the box and it shows the text moved to the left so the right-hand-side is visible. I want the text in the edit box to be positioned the same as the text in the drop-down box (so the start of text is visible on the left-hand-side, and any oversized text unseen on the right).

    Some suggested reasoning: I think it may be trying to ensure the cursor is visible, after leaving the cursor at the end. But I have tried using setCursorPosition(1) but there is no such function in QComboBox.
