View Full Version : Change the text color tab page

19th January 2006, 03:15
Dear all,

I tried the following code snippet for changing the text color of tab page but it wouldn't

work as I hoped.

QString strText("<font color=#FF0000>some text</font>");


At runtime the page at position zero shows the strText but it doesn't parse the html tag.

I expect there are some other ways to change the text color of a tab page. If so, Can

anybody do me a favour ?

All helps will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Have a nice day.

Try with void QTabBar::setTabTextColor ( int index, const QColor (http://www.qtcentre.org/forum/qcolor.html) & color ).

Dear MarkoSan,

Thanks for your reply.

As a matter of fact, I am using Qt version 4.0.0 and QTabBar class doesn't have a method which is so-called setTabTextColor.

Thanks anyway

Have a nice day

well is it possible for you to move to QT 4.1? Because there you have that method available.
