I want to set a QTextEdit as read only, but I still want to show the cursor, how do I do that?

Actually, I'm hoping that the QTextEdit receives key event so that only arbitrary set of characters are received and displayed in QTextEdit.That's why I set it as read only and still want the cursor visible. If QTextEdit cannot do that, any other widget can do it?

If you just want to filter key events, either use a sub-classes QTestEdit or an event filter on a QTextEdit. That way you can keep it editable.

Another way to validate user input is to use a QValidator.

Thanks.

But it still seems that a visual cursor in a read only editor is the way to fit my requirement. I know Java can do it.

And Qt can do it too. You've just been told how to solve this problem.
