    Default [QT3] QToolTip with Images (QPixMap) ?

    Hello,

    I would like to know if it is possible to insert an image from the image collection in a QToolTip.

    I know that it's possible to display an image in a tooltip by using HTML code in a QString like:

    Qt Code:
    1. tip(rect, QString("<img src=\"image.png\">");
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    but i need to insert a .png from the image collection i created with QT designer.
    Normally i use the following function to get an image from the image collection:

    Qt Code:
    1. QPixmap::fromMimeSource("image.png")
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    My problem is... i don't have a storage path to that image to insert at the src="" field

    Maybe anyone can help me..

    If you set the default mime source of the application to be your image collection you can use images stored there in QToolTip by using its name as the source (so <img src="xxx"> where xxx is the name assigned to an image in the collection).

    so this will do the job??

    Qt Code:
    1. tip(rect, QString("<img src=\"image.png\">");
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    that would be very great, going to test it tomorrow at work.. thx again!

    Yes, it should be ok, provided you have "image.png" in your collection.
