    Default ComboBox with lines


    I would like to create a ComboBox for selecting different line styles. I triedto to use a delegate that uses the paint function to draw these lines. This works well for the popup list, But i want, that the user can select one line style and this line should be shown in the editor field. But here i see nothing. The delegate seems to work only in the popup list.
    How can i do this?

    Best regards

    Now i found a solution. You have to derive a new ComboBox from QComboBox. In this you must overload the paintEvent. This should look like this.
    Qt Code:
    1. void MyComboBox::paintEvent(QPaintEvent * event)
    2. {
    3. QStylePainter painter(this);
    5. // draw the combobox frame, focusrect and selected etc.
    6. initStyleOption(&opt);
    7. painter.drawComplexControl(QStyle::CC_ComboBox, opt);
    9. // draw something in the edit
    10. QRect rect = painter.style()->subControlRect(QStyle::CC_ComboBox, &opt, QStyle::SC_ComboBoxEditField, this);
    11. // now you have the rect of the lineEdit and a painter and you can paint wathever you want.
    12. }
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode
