View Full Version : KTitleWidget & word wrap

29th March 2009, 17:47

I am using a KTitleWidget and sometimes the test displayed is too long for the screen.

So, how can I use word wrap on KTitleWidget (like QLabel::setWordWrap) ?

Thank you.

Set the text as rich text, not as plain text.

widget->setText("<html><body>My long title</body></html>");

Hi Wysota,

I tried your proposal but it doesn't work.
The long test is displayed on only one line, the widget is resized and the main panel is larger than the screen. :(

Do you have an other idea ?

Thank you.

Yes, use QLabel :) Seriously, if it doesn't work then it's a limitation of KTitleWidget and there is not much we can do about it. I suggest you use some other widget instead. KTitleWidget is a very simple widget, you can emulate it with QLabel and a timer and you'll get wordwrapping for free.
