Detailed Description

The Q3TextEdit widget provides a powerful single-page rich text editor.

Introduction and Concepts

Q3TextEdit is an advanced WYSIWYG viewer/editor supporting rich text formatting using HTML-style tags. It is optimized to handle large documents and to respond quickly to user input.

Q3TextEdit has four modes of operation:

ModeCommandNotes
Plain Text EditorsetTextFormat(Qt::PlainText)Set text with setText(); text() returns plain text. Text attributes (e.g. colors) can be set, but plain text is always returned.
Rich Text EditorsetTextFormat(Qt::RichText)Set text with setText(); text() returns rich text. Rich text editing is fairly limited. You can't set margins or insert images for example (although you can read and correctly display files that have margins set and that include images). This mode is mostly useful for editing small amounts of rich text.
Text ViewersetReadOnly(true)Set text with setText() or append() (which has no undo history so is faster and uses less memory); text() returns plain or rich text depending on the textFormat(). This mode can correctly display a large subset of HTML tags.
Log ViewersetTextFormat(Qt::LogText)Append text using append(). The widget is set to be read only and rich text support is disabled although a few HTML tags (for color, bold, italic and underline) may be used. (See Qt::LogText mode for details.)

Q3TextEdit can be used as a syntax highlighting editor when used in conjunction with QSyntaxHighlighter.

We recommend that you always call setTextFormat() to set the mode you want to use. If you use Qt::AutoText then setText() and append() will try to determine whether the text they are given is plain text or rich text. If you use Qt::RichText then setText() and append() will assume that the text they are given is rich text. insert() simply inserts the text it is given.

Q3TextEdit works on paragraphs and characters. A paragraph is a formatted string which is word-wrapped to fit into the width of the widget. By default when reading plain text, one newline signify a paragraph. A document consists of zero or more paragraphs, indexed from 0. Characters are indexed on a per-paragraph basis, also indexed from 0. The words in the paragraph are aligned in accordance with the paragraph's alignment(). Paragraphs are separated by hard line breaks. Each character within a paragraph has its own attributes, for example, font and color.

The text edit documentation uses the following concepts:

  • current format -- this is the format at the current cursor position, and it is the format of the selected text if any.
  • current paragraph -- the paragraph which contains the cursor.

Q3TextEdit can display images (using Q3MimeSourceFactory), lists and tables. If the text is too large to view within the text edit's viewport, scroll bars will appear. The text edit can load both plain text and HTML files (a subset of HTML 3.2 and 4). The rendering style and the set of valid tags are defined by a styleSheet(). Custom tags can be created and placed in a custom style sheet. Change the style sheet with setStyleSheet(); see Q3StyleSheet for details. The images identified by image tags are displayed if they can be interpreted using the text edit's Q3MimeSourceFactory; see setMimeSourceFactory().

If you want a text browser with more navigation use QTextBrowser. If you just need to display a small piece of rich text use QLabel or QSimpleRichText.

If you create a new Q3TextEdit, and want to allow the user to edit rich text, call setTextFormat(Qt::RichText) to ensure that the text is treated as rich text. (Rich text uses HTML tags to set text formatting attributes. See Q3StyleSheet for information on the HTML tags that are supported.). If you don't call setTextFormat() explicitly the text edit will guess from the text itself whether it is rich text or plain text. This means that if the text looks like HTML or XML it will probably be interpreted as rich text, so you should call setTextFormat(Qt::PlainText) to preserve such text.

Note that we do not intend to add a full-featured web browser widget to Qt (because that would easily double Qt's size and only a few applications would benefit from it). The rich text support in Qt is designed to provide a fast, portable and efficient way to add reasonable online help facilities to applications, and to provide a basis for rich text editors.

Using Q3TextEdit as a Display Widget

Q3TextEdit can display a large HTML subset, including tables and images.

The text is set or replaced using setText() which deletes any existing text and replaces it with the text passed in the setText() call. If you call setText() with legacy HTML (with setTextFormat(Qt::RichText) in force), and then call text(), the text that is returned may have different markup, but will render the same. Text can be inserted with insert(), paste(), pasteSubType() and append(). Text that is appended does not go into the undo history; this makes append() faster and consumes less memory. Text can also be cut(). The entire text is deleted with clear() and the selected text is deleted with removeSelectedText(). Selected (marked) text can also be deleted with del() (which will delete the character to the right of the cursor if no text is selected).

Loading and saving text is achieved using setText() and text(), for example:

 QFile file(fileName); // Read the text from a file
 if (file.open(IO_ReadOnly)) {
     QTextStream stream(&file);
     textEdit->setText(stream.read());
 }

 QFile file(fileName); // Write the text to a file
 if (file.open(IO_WriteOnly)) {
     QTextStream stream(&file);
     stream << textEdit->text();
     textEdit->setModified(false);
 }

By default the text edit wraps words at whitespace to fit within the text edit widget. The setWordWrap() function is used to specify the kind of word wrap you want, or NoWrap if you don't want any wrapping. Call setWordWrap() to set a fixed pixel width FixedPixelWidth, or character column (e.g. 80 column) FixedColumnWidth with the pixels or columns specified with setWrapColumnOrWidth(). If you use word wrap to the widget's width WidgetWidth, you can specify whether to break on whitespace or anywhere with setWrapPolicy().

The background color is set differently than other widgets, using setPaper(). You specify a brush style which could be a plain color or a complex pixmap.

Hypertext links are automatically underlined; this can be changed with setLinkUnderline(). The tab stop width is set with setTabStopWidth().

The zoomIn() and zoomOut() functions can be used to resize the text by increasing (decreasing for zoomOut()) the point size used. Images are not affected by the zoom functions.

The lines() function returns the number of lines in the text and paragraphs() returns the number of paragraphs. The number of lines within a particular paragraph is returned by linesOfParagraph(). The length of the entire text in characters is returned by length().

You can scroll to an anchor in the text, e.g. <a name="anchor"> with scrollToAnchor(). The find() function can be used to find and select a given string within the text.

A read-only Q3TextEdit provides the same functionality as the (obsolete) QTextView. (QTextView is still supplied for compatibility with old code.)

Read-only key bindings

When Q3TextEdit is used read-only the key-bindings are limited to navigation, and text may only be selected with the mouse:

KeypressesAction
UpMove one line up
DownMove one line down
LeftMove one character left
RightMove one character right
PageUpMove one (viewport) page up
PageDownMove one (viewport) page down
HomeMove to the beginning of the text
EndMove to the end of the text
Shift+WheelScroll the page horizontally (the Wheel is the mouse wheel)
Ctrl+WheelZoom the text

The text edit may be able to provide some meta-information. For example, the documentTitle() function will return the text from within HTML <title> tags.

The text displayed in a text edit has a context. The context is a path which the text edit's Q3MimeSourceFactory uses to resolve the locations of files and images. It is passed to the mimeSourceFactory() when quering data. (See Q3TextEdit() and context().)

Using Q3TextEdit in Qt::LogText Mode

Setting the text format to Qt::LogText puts the widget in a special mode which is optimized for very large texts. In this mode editing and rich text support are disabled (the widget is explicitly set to read-only mode). This allows the text to be stored in a different, more memory efficient manner. However, a certain degree of text formatting is supported through the use of formatting tags. A tag is delimited by < and >. The characters <, > and & are escaped by using &lt;, &gt; and &amp;. A tag pair consists of a left and a right tag (or open/close tags). Left-tags mark the starting point for formatting, while right-tags mark the ending point. A right-tag always start with a / before the tag keyword. For example <b> and </b> are a tag pair. Tags can be nested, but they have to be closed in the same order as they are opened. For example, <b><u></u></b> is valid, while <b><u></b></u> will output an error message.

By using tags it is possible to change the color, bold, italic and underline settings for a piece of text. A color can be specified by using the HTML font tag <font color=colorname>. The color name can be one of the color names from the X11 color database, or a RGB hex value (e.g #00ff00). Example of valid color tags: <font color=red>, <font color="light blue">,<font color="#223344">. Bold, italic and underline settings can be specified by the tags <b>, <i> and <u>. Note that a tag does not necessarily have to be closed. A valid example:

 This is <font color=red>red</font> while <b>this</b> is <font color=blue>blue</font>.
 <font color=green><font color=yellow>Yellow,</font> and <u>green</u>.

Stylesheets can also be used in Qt::LogText mode. To create and use a custom tag, you could do the following:

 Q3TextEdit * log = new Q3TextEdit(this);
 log->setTextFormat(Qt::LogText);
 Q3StyleSheetItem * item = new Q3StyleSheetItem(log->styleSheet(), "mytag");
 item->setColor("red");
 item->setFontWeight(QFont::Bold);
 item->setFontUnderline(true);
 log->append("This is a <mytag>custom tag</mytag>!");

Note that only the color, bold, underline and italic attributes of a Q3StyleSheetItem is used in Qt::LogText mode.

Note that you can use setMaxLogLines() to limit the number of lines the widget can hold in Qt::LogText mode.

There are a few things that you need to be aware of when the widget is in this mode:

  • Functions that deal with rich text formatting and cursor movement will not work or return anything valid.
  • Lines are equivalent to paragraphs.

Using Q3TextEdit as an Editor

All the information about using Q3TextEdit as a display widget also applies here.

The current format's attributes are set with setItalic(), setBold(), setUnderline(), setFamily() (font family), setPointSize(), setColor() and setCurrentFont(). The current paragraph's alignment is set with setAlignment().

Use setSelection() to select text. The setSelectionAttributes() function is used to indicate how selected text should be displayed. Use hasSelectedText() to find out if any text is selected. The currently selected text's position is available using getSelection() and the selected text itself is returned by selectedText(). The selection can be copied to the clipboard with copy(), or cut to the clipboard with cut(). It can be deleted with removeSelectedText(). The entire text can be selected (or unselected) using selectAll(). Q3TextEdit supports multiple selections. Most of the selection functions operate on the default selection, selection 0. If the user presses a non-selecting key, e.g. a cursor key without also holding down Shift, all selections are cleared.

Set and get the position of the cursor with setCursorPosition() and getCursorPosition() respectively. When the cursor is moved, the signals currentFontChanged(), currentColorChanged() and currentAlignmentChanged() are emitted to reflect the font, color and alignment at the new cursor position.

If the text changes, the textChanged() signal is emitted, and if the user inserts a new line by pressing Return or Enter, returnPressed() is emitted. The isModified() function will return true if the text has been modified.

Q3TextEdit provides command-based undo and redo. To set the depth of the command history use setUndoDepth() which defaults to 100 steps. To undo or redo the last operation call undo() or redo(). The signals undoAvailable() and redoAvailable() indicate whether the undo and redo operations can be executed.

Editing key bindings

The list of key-bindings which are implemented for editing:

KeypressesAction
BackspaceDelete the character to the left of the cursor
DeleteDelete the character to the right of the cursor
Ctrl+AMove the cursor to the beginning of the line
Ctrl+BMove the cursor one character left
Ctrl+CCopy the marked text to the clipboard (also Ctrl+Insert under Windows)
Ctrl+DDelete the character to the right of the cursor
Ctrl+EMove the cursor to the end of the line
Ctrl+FMove the cursor one character right
Ctrl+HDelete the character to the left of the cursor
Ctrl+KDelete to end of line
Ctrl+NMove the cursor one line down
Ctrl+PMove the cursor one line up
Ctrl+VPaste the clipboard text into line edit (also Shift+Insert under Windows)
Ctrl+XCut the marked text, copy to clipboard (also Shift+Delete under Windows)
Ctrl+ZUndo the last operation
Ctrl+YRedo the last operation
LeftMove the cursor one character left
Ctrl+LeftMove the cursor one word left
RightMove the cursor one character right
Ctrl+RightMove the cursor one word right
UpMove the cursor one line up
Ctrl+Qt::UpMove the cursor one word up
DownArrowMove the cursor one line down
Ctrl+DownMove the cursor one word down
PageUpMove the cursor one page up
PageDownMove the cursor one page down
HomeMove the cursor to the beginning of the line
Ctrl+HomeMove the cursor to the beginning of the text
EndMove the cursor to the end of the line
Ctrl+EndMove the cursor to the end of the text
Shift+WheelScroll the page horizontally (the Wheel is the mouse wheel)
Ctrl+WheelZoom the text

To select (mark) text hold down the Shift key whilst pressing one of the movement keystrokes, for example, Shift+Right will select the character to the right, and Shift+Ctrl+Right will select the word to the right, etc.

By default the text edit widget operates in insert mode so all text that the user enters is inserted into the text edit and any text to the right of the cursor is moved out of the way. The mode can be changed to overwrite, where new text overwrites any text to the right of the cursor, using setOverwriteMode().

ConstantValueDescription
Q3TextEdit::ActionBackspace0Delete the character to the left of the cursor.
Q3TextEdit::ActionDelete1Delete the character to the right of the cursor.
Q3TextEdit::ActionReturn2Split the paragraph at the cursor position.
Q3TextEdit::ActionKill3If the cursor is not at the end of the paragraph, delete the text from the cursor position until the end of the paragraph. If the cursor is at the end of the paragraph, delete the hard line break at the end of the paragraph: this will cause this paragraph to be joined with the following paragraph.
Q3TextEdit::ActionWordBackspace4Delete the word to the left of the cursor position.

Property Documentation

autoFormatting : AutoFormattingFlag

This property holds the enabled set of auto formatting features.

The value can be any combination of the values in the AutoFormattingFlag enum. The default is AutoAll. Choose AutoNone to disable all automatic formatting.

Currently, the only automatic formatting feature provided is AutoBulletList; future versions of Qt may offer more.

Access functions:

AutoFormatting autoFormatting () const
void setAutoFormatting ( AutoFormatting )

documentTitle : const QString

This property holds the title of the document parsed from the text.

For Qt::PlainText the title will be an empty string. For Qt::RichText the title will be the text between the <title> tags, if present, otherwise an empty string.

Access functions:

QString documentTitle () const

hasSelectedText : const bool

This property holds whether some text is selected in selection 0.

Access functions:

bool hasSelectedText () const

length : const int

This property holds the number of characters in the text.

Access functions:

int length () const

linkUnderline : bool

This property holds whether hypertext links will be underlined.

If true (the default) hypertext links will be displayed underlined. If false links will not be displayed underlined.

Access functions:

bool linkUnderline () const
virtual void setLinkUnderline ( bool )

modified : bool

This property holds whether the document has been modified by the user.

Access functions:

bool isModified () const
virtual void setModified ( bool m )

overwriteMode : bool

This property holds the text edit's overwrite mode.

If false (the default) characters entered by the user are inserted with any characters to the right being moved out of the way. If true, the editor is in overwrite mode, i.e. characters entered by the user overwrite any characters to the right of the cursor position.

Access functions:

bool isOverwriteMode () const
virtual void setOverwriteMode ( bool b )

paper : QBrush

This property holds the background (paper) brush.

The brush that is currently used to draw the background of the text edit. The initial setting is an empty brush.

Access functions:

QBrush paper () const
virtual void setPaper ( const QBrush & pap )

readOnly : bool

This property holds whether the text edit is read-only.

In a read-only text edit the user can only navigate through the text and select text; modifying the text is not possible.

This property's default is false.

Access functions:

bool isReadOnly () const
virtual void setReadOnly ( bool b )

selectedText : const QString

This property holds the selected text (from selection 0) or an empty string if there is no currently selected text (in selection 0).

The text is always returned as Qt::PlainText if the textFormat() is Qt::PlainText or Qt::AutoText, otherwise it is returned as HTML.

Access functions:

QString selectedText () const

See also hasSelectedText.

tabChangesFocus : bool

This property holds whether TAB changes focus or is accepted as input.

In some occasions text edits should not allow the user to input tabulators or change indentation using the TAB key, as this breaks the focus chain. The default is false.

Access functions:

bool tabChangesFocus () const
virtual void setTabChangesFocus ( bool b )

tabStopWidth : int

This property holds the tab stop width in pixels.

Access functions:

int tabStopWidth () const
virtual void setTabStopWidth ( int ts )

text : QString

This property holds the text edit's text.

There is no default text.

On setting, any previous text is deleted.

The text may be interpreted either as plain text or as rich text, depending on the textFormat(). The default setting is Qt::AutoText, i.e. the text edit auto-detects the format of the text.

For richtext, calling text() on an editable Q3TextEdit will cause the text to be regenerated from the textedit. This may mean that the QString returned may not be exactly the same as the one that was set.

Access functions:

QString text () const
QString text ( int para ) const
void setText ( const QString & txt )
virtual void setText ( const QString & text, const QString & context )

See also textFormat.

textFormat : Qt::TextFormat

This property holds the text format: rich text, plain text, log text or auto text.

The text format is one of the following:

  • Qt::PlainText - all characters, except newlines, are displayed verbatim, including spaces. Whenever a newline appears in the text the text edit inserts a hard line break and begins a new paragraph.
  • Qt::RichText - rich text rendering. The available styles are defined in the default stylesheet Q3StyleSheet::defaultSheet().
  • Qt::LogText - optimized mode for very large texts. Supports a very limited set of formatting tags (color, bold, underline and italic settings).
  • Qt::AutoText - this is the default. The text edit autodetects which rendering style is best, Qt::PlainText or Qt::RichText. This is done by using the Q3StyleSheet::mightBeRichText() function.

Access functions:

Qt::TextFormat textFormat () const
virtual void setTextFormat ( Qt::TextFormat f )

virtual void setWordWrap ( Q3TextEdit::WordWrap mode )

See also WordWrap, wrapColumnOrWidth, and wrapPolicy.

wrapColumnOrWidth : int

This property holds the position (in pixels or columns depending on the wrap mode) where text will be wrapped.

If the wrap mode is FixedPixelWidth, the value is the number of pixels from the left edge of the text edit at which text should be wrapped. If the wrap mode is FixedColumnWidth, the value is the column number (in character columns) from the left edge of the text edit at which text should be wrapped.

Access functions:

int wrapColumnOrWidth () const
virtual void setWrapColumnOrWidth ( int )

See also wordWrap.

wrapPolicy : WrapPolicy

This property holds the word wrap policy, at whitespace or anywhere.

Member Function Documentation

Q3TextEdit::Q3TextEdit ( const QString & text, const QString & context = QString(), QWidget * parent = 0, const char * name = 0 )

Constructs a Q3TextEdit called name, with parent parent. The text edit will display the text text using context context.

The context is a path which the text edit's Q3MimeSourceFactory uses to resolve the locations of files and images. It is passed to the mimeSourceFactory() when quering data.

For example if the text contains an image tag, <img src="image.png">, and the context is "path/to/look/in", the Q3MimeSourceFactory will try to load the image from "path/to/look/in/image.png". If the tag was <img src="/image.png">, the context will not be used (because Q3MimeSourceFactory recognizes that we have used an absolute path) and will try to load "/image.png". The context is applied in exactly the same way to hrefs, for example, <a href="target.html">Target</a>, would resolve to "path/to/look/in/target.html".

Q3TextEdit::Q3TextEdit ( QWidget * parent = 0, const char * name = 0 )

Constructs an empty Q3TextEdit called name, with parent parent.

Q3TextEdit::~Q3TextEdit () [virtual]

void Q3TextEdit::append ( const QString & text ) [virtual slot]

Appends a new paragraph with text to the end of the text edit. Note that the undo/redo history is cleared by this function, and no undo history is kept for appends which makes them faster than insert()s. If you want to append text which is added to the undo/redo history as well, use insertParagraph().

bool Q3TextEdit::bold () const

Returns true if the current format is bold; otherwise returns false.

See also setBold().

Q3PopupMenu * Q3TextEdit::createPopupMenu ( const QPoint & pos ) [virtual protected]

This function is called to create a right mouse button popup menu at the document position pos. If you want to create a custom popup menu, reimplement this function and return the created popup menu. Ownership of the popup menu is transferred to the caller.

Warning: The QPopupMenu ID values 0-7 are reserved, and they map to the standard operations. When inserting items into your custom popup menu, be sure to specify ID values larger than 7.

Q3PopupMenu * Q3TextEdit::createPopupMenu () [virtual protected]

This is an overloaded function.

This function is called to create a right mouse button popup menu. If you want to create a custom popup menu, reimplement this function and return the created popup menu. Ownership of the popup menu is transferred to the caller.

This function is only called if createPopupMenu(const QPoint &) returns 0.

The new font is f.

See also setCurrentFont().

void Q3TextEdit::currentVerticalAlignmentChanged ( Q3TextEdit::VerticalAlignment a ) [signal]

This signal is emitted if the vertical alignment of the current format has changed.

The new vertical alignment is a.

void Q3TextEdit::cursorPositionChanged ( int para, int pos ) [signal]

This is an overloaded function.

This signal is emitted if the position of the cursor has changed. para contains the paragraph index and pos contains the character position within the paragraph.

See also setCursorPosition().

void Q3TextEdit::cut () [virtual slot]

Copies the selected text (from selection 0) to the clipboard and deletes it from the text edit.

If there is no selected text (in selection 0) nothing happens.

See also Q3TextEdit::copy(), paste(), and pasteSubType().

void Q3TextEdit::del () [virtual slot]

If there is some selected text (in selection 0) it is deleted. If there is no selected text (in selection 0) the character to the right of the text cursor is deleted.

See also removeSelectedText() and cut().

void Q3TextEdit::doKeyboardAction ( Q3TextEdit::KeyboardAction action ) [virtual slot]

Executes keyboard action action. This is normally called by a key event handler.

void Q3TextEdit::doubleClicked ( int para, int pos ) [signal]

bool Q3TextEdit::eventFilter ( QObject * o, QEvent * e ) [virtual]

Reimplemented from QObject::eventFilter().

QString Q3TextEdit::family () const

Returns the font family of the current format.

See also setFamily(), setCurrentFont(), and setPointSize().

bool Q3TextEdit::find ( const QString & expr, bool cs, bool wo, bool forward = true, int * para = 0, int * index = 0 ) [virtual]

Finds the next occurrence of the string, expr. Returns true if expr was found; otherwise returns false.

If para and index are both 0 the search begins from the current cursor position. If para and index are both not 0, the search begins from the *index character position in the *para paragraph.

If cs is true the search is case sensitive, otherwise it is case insensitive. If wo is true the search looks for whole word matches only; otherwise it searches for any matching text. If forward is true (the default) the search works forward from the starting position to the end of the text, otherwise it works backwards to the beginning of the text.

If expr is found the function returns true. If index and para are not 0, the number of the paragraph in which the first character of the match was found is put into *para, and the index position of that character within the paragraph is put into *index.

If expr is not found the function returns false. If index and para are not 0 and expr is not found, *index and *para are undefined.

Please note that this function will make the next occurrence of the string (if found) the current selection, and will thus modify the cursor position.

Using the para and index parameters will not work correctly in case the document contains tables.

bool Q3TextEdit::focusNextPrevChild ( bool n ) [virtual protected]

Reimplemented from QWidget::focusNextPrevChild().

Reimplemented to allow tabbing through links. If n is true the tab moves the focus to the next child; if n is false the tab moves the focus to the previous child. Returns true if the focus was moved; otherwise returns false.

QFont Q3TextEdit::font () const

Returns Q3ScrollView::font()

Warning: In previous versions this function returned the font of the current format. This lead to confusion. Please use currentFont() instead.

void Q3TextEdit::getCursorPosition ( int * para, int * index ) const

This function sets the *para and *index parameters to the current cursor position. para and index must not be 0.

See also setCursorPosition().

void Q3TextEdit::getSelection ( int * paraFrom, int * indexFrom, int * paraTo, int * indexTo, int selNum = 0 ) const

If there is a selection, *paraFrom is set to the number of the paragraph in which the selection begins and *paraTo is set to the number of the paragraph in which the selection ends. (They could be the same.) *indexFrom is set to the index at which the selection begins within *paraFrom, and *indexTo is set to the index at which the selection ends within *paraTo.

If there is no selection, *paraFrom, *indexFrom, *paraTo and *indexTo are all set to -1.

If paraFrom, indexFrom, paraTo or indexTo is 0 this function does nothing.

The selNum is the number of the selection (multiple selections are supported). It defaults to 0 (the default selection).

See also setSelection() and selectedText.

int Q3TextEdit::heightForWidth ( int w ) const [virtual]

Reimplemented from QWidget::heightForWidth().

Returns how many pixels high the text edit needs to be to display all the text if the text edit is w pixels wide.

void Q3TextEdit::inputMethodEvent ( QInputMethodEvent * e ) [virtual protected]

Reimplemented from QWidget::inputMethodEvent().

void Q3TextEdit::insert ( const QString & text, uint insertionFlags = CheckNewLines | RemoveSelected ) [virtual slot]

Inserts text at the current cursor position.

The insertionFlags define how the text is inserted. If RedoIndentation is set, the paragraph is re-indented. If CheckNewLines is set, newline characters in text result in hard line breaks (i.e. new paragraphs). If checkNewLine is not set, the behavior of the editor is undefined if the text contains newlines. (It is not possible to change Q3TextEdit's newline handling behavior, but you can use QString::replace() to preprocess text before inserting it.) If RemoveSelected is set, any selected text (in selection 0) is removed before the text is inserted.

The default flags are CheckNewLines | RemoveSelected.

If the widget is in Qt::LogText mode this function will do nothing.

See also paste() and pasteSubType().

void Q3TextEdit::insert ( const QString & text, bool indent, bool checkNewLine = true, bool removeSelected = true ) [virtual slot]

Inserts the given text. If indent is true the paragraph that contains the text is reindented; if checkNewLine is true the text is checked for newlines and relaid out. If removeSelected is true and there is a selection, the insertion replaces the selected text.

void Q3TextEdit::insertAt ( const QString & text, int para, int index ) [virtual slot]

Inserts text in the paragraph para at position index.

void Q3TextEdit::insertParagraph ( const QString & text, int para ) [virtual slot]

Inserts text as a new paragraph at position para. If para is -1, the text is appended. Use append() if the append operation is performance critical.

bool Q3TextEdit::isRedoAvailable () const

Returns true if redo is available; otherwise returns false.

bool Q3TextEdit::isUndoAvailable () const

Returns true if undo is available; otherwise returns false.

bool Q3TextEdit::italic () const

Returns true if the current format is italic; otherwise returns false.

See also setItalic().

void Q3TextEdit::keyPressEvent ( QKeyEvent * e ) [virtual protected]

Reimplemented from QWidget::keyPressEvent().

int Q3TextEdit::lineOfChar ( int para, int index )

Returns the line number of the line in paragraph para in which the character at position index appears. The index position is relative to the beginning of the paragraph. If there is no such paragraph or no such character at the index position (e.g. the index is out of range) -1 is returned.

int Q3TextEdit::lines () const

Returns the number of lines in the text edit; this could be 0.

Warning: This function may be slow. Lines change all the time during word wrapping, so this function has to iterate over all the paragraphs and get the number of lines from each one individually.

int Q3TextEdit::linesOfParagraph ( int para ) const

Returns the number of lines in paragraph para, or -1 if there is no paragraph with index para.

Q3MimeSourceFactory * Q3TextEdit::mimeSourceFactory () const

Returns the Q3MimeSourceFactory which is being used by this text edit.

See also setMimeSourceFactory().

void Q3TextEdit::modificationChanged ( bool m ) [signal]

This signal is emitted when the modification status of the document has changed. If m is true, the document was modified, otherwise the modification state has been reset to unmodified.

See also modified.

void Q3TextEdit::moveCursor ( Q3TextEdit::CursorAction action, bool select ) [virtual slot]

Moves the text cursor according to action. This is normally used by some key event handler. select specifies whether the text between the current cursor position and the new position should be selected.

See also setParagraphBackgroundColor().

int Q3TextEdit::paragraphLength ( int para ) const

Returns the length of the paragraph para (i.e. the number of characters), or -1 if there is no paragraph with index para.

This function ignores newlines.

QRect Q3TextEdit::paragraphRect ( int para ) const

Returns the rectangle of the paragraph para in contents coordinates, or an invalid rectangle if para is out of range.

int Q3TextEdit::paragraphs () const

Returns the number of paragraphs in the text; an empty textedit is always considered to have one paragraph, so 1 is returned in this case.

void Q3TextEdit::paste () [virtual slot]

Pastes the text from the clipboard into the text edit at the current cursor position. Only plain text is pasted.

If there is no text in the clipboard nothing happens.

See also pasteSubType(), cut(), and Q3TextEdit::copy().

void Q3TextEdit::pasteSubType ( const QByteArray & subtype ) [virtual slot]

Pastes the text with format subtype from the clipboard into the text edit at the current cursor position. The subtype can be "plain" or "html".

Any existing selections which have a different id (selNum) are left alone, but if an existing selection has the same id as selNum it is removed and replaced by this selection.

Uses the selection settings of selection selNum. If selNum is 0, this is the default selection.

The cursor is moved to the end of the selection if selNum is 0, otherwise the cursor position remains unchanged.

See also getSelection() and selectedText.

void Q3TextEdit::setSelectionAttributes ( int selNum, const QColor & back, bool invertText ) [virtual slot]

Sets the background color of selection number selNum to back and specifies whether the text of this selection should be inverted with invertText.

This only works for selNum > 0. The default selection (selNum == 0) gets its attributes from the text edit's palette().

Q3StyleSheet * Q3TextEdit::styleSheet () const

Returns the Q3StyleSheet which is being used by this text edit.

See also setStyleSheet().

void Q3TextEdit::sync () [virtual slot]

Q3TextEdit is optimized for large amounts text. One of its optimizations is to format only the visible text, formatting the rest on demand, e.g. as the user scrolls, so you don't usually need to call this function.

In some situations you may want to force the whole text to be formatted. For example, if after calling setText(), you wanted to know the height of the document (using contentsHeight()), you would call this function first.

Q3SyntaxHighlighter * Q3TextEdit::syntaxHighlighter () const

Returns the QSyntaxHighlighter set on this Q3TextEdit. 0 is returned if no syntax highlighter is set.

void Q3TextEdit::textChanged () [signal]

This signal is emitted whenever the text in the text edit changes.
