I'm trying to create simple text editor using the QT.I have created simple one with menus now i want to add some functionality to improve it like these:

1.Add tabs at bottom to allow user to open multiple files

2.Syntax highlight

3.Line counting colum & Line highlight when cursor is pressed on line

is there anyway i can do this?

Also when text editor from the sample eample created it shows blank window at the left top of the winow.How can i change that icon to display something else,is it possible to change that?

1.Add tabs at bottom to allow user to open multiple files
U can use QTabWidget for this.


2.Syntax highlight
Refer to syntax highlighter demo in Qt Demos


3.Line counting colum & Line highlight when cursor is pressed on line

not sure of this right now... :(

Right you ar trying to tell me to change the color of the text,what i'm trying to create is the to generate the hex valur of the color in the "Textedit dialog box" when the color from the pallete is selected.

Problems i have :

Number 1:
i've created the notepad from the example but the icon of the app at the left top is diffrent.How can i change the icon for that as well as for the .exe also?

Number 2:
The notepad has some space for the icons for the cut/copy/paste,below it i want to add the tabtoolbar? How can i do that?
