Need help QsciScintilla control

  • Hi All,

    I have designed the UI part using QT4.8.6 desinger and for the back end I am using Python 2.7. In my application I am calling .ui file dynamically. (Means I have not cross compiled the .ui file into .py file). With this setup I have kept QsciScintilla control on the UI. But the moment I am trying to handle the QsciScintilla control using python (Pyqt4). I am getting error saying that module not supported.

    After that I have installed QT creator 4.6.1. Which has QT designer 5.5 version. But in the version I am not able to locate the QsciScintilla control.

    Please suggest me for below two options:

    1. How to access QsciScintilla object using python2.7
    2. How to add QsciScintilla control in QT designer 5.5
    3. Any other method how I can put QsciScintilla control on my UI and handle the same using the python.
      Request all of you to revert back in case any clarification needed.

    Please suggest some working solution. I need to submit this project on priority basis.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    QScintilla is a product from Riverbank Computing. You should rather ask them.

    In any case, you should also reconsider your backend. Python 2.7 has almost reached end of life so you should not start a new project using it.
