QTextEdit and setValidator

  • Hi,

    I want a QTextEdit to prevent certain characters form being entered by the user. I tried what I did with a few QLineEdits but QTextEdit dosen't have setValidator()

    ui->NotesTEdit->setValidator(new QRegExpValidator(rx, ui->NotesTEdit));

    error: 'class QTextEdit' has no member named 'setValidator'

    how can I get the intended behavior?

    That's something you'll have to implement by hand. Likely using the textChanged.

    Hope it helps
