    Method 1: Use a mask on a QLineEdit
    Method 2: Use four QLineEdit's and have the '.'s as QLabels
    Method 3: Subclass QLinEdit and override paintEvent to nicely align the ip address (you can also do the validation in the subclass too)

    If you want to allow copy/paste of the ip address, you should rule out method 2, but thats the way Windows IP control works (tab doesn't work properly there either).

    You could connect to "textChanged()". If 3 digits were entered set the focus to the next QLineEdit.
