Keep qtextedit cursor position after setHtml

  • Hi,
    I have a QTextEdit field that I have to check in real time for validating it.

    Every time I receive a textChanged signal I call a method that after checking the values in some tables, it change the table format for setting red or green color certain parts of the text.

    My problem is that in every call to textEdit->setHtml(), cursor "resets" and goes to position 1.

    Is there any way to store the last position of the cursor and set it up after setHtml()?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    You can store the position of the QTextCursor before calling setHtml and set it again afterward with setPosition.

    Hope it helps
