View Full Version : Customize QTabBar or QTabWidget

10th February 2006, 04:14
Dear everybody out there,

I have developed my program based on QT 4.0.0 and have a requirement to set different color for each tab page title (or text in QT language). Does anyone have experience with QTabBar and QTabWidget ? If someone knows (as I hope) please do me a favour.

Greatly appreciated all your helps. Thanks in advance

Have a nice day

Ps: it's nice of you to give me some sample code snippet.

QTabBar has a method setTabTextColor (http://doc.trolltech.com/4.1/qtabbar.html#setTabTextColor)

With QTabWidget, I think you would have to inherit a QTabWidget, and that way you would have access to the protected method QTabBar * tabBar () const. And then you can use the above function to change the text color for each tab.

Thank you Bojan

Your answer is good, but unfortunately the Qt version 4.0.0 I am using doesn't have any method which is so-called setTabTextColor even with QTabBar class. Thanks anyway


ps: If you find some way with Qt version 4.0.0 pls reply to me.
