[Solved] QTextDocument with < and > characters

  • I'm using QTextDocument to set the appearance of fields. I use:

    htmlText.setHtml("<div align=center>mytext</div>

    When mytext is composed of numerals and normal characters, everything is fine, but in one case I'd like to display the string "<80" in the field. This doesn't work (I would assume because the parser sees the < character and figures it's a new section). How can I include the < or > characters in an html string?

  • Moderators

    < and > are special characters in html. To display them literally you can use entities: &lt; and &gt; i.e. &lt;80 will result in <80.
    For a list of possible entities you can scout the web, e.g. here.
