    Default Change the indentation with QSyntaxHighlighter


    I'm trying to change the indentation of text with the QSyntaxHighlighter, but so far I found no solution. It's easy to change the color or the fontweight but it is also possible to change the indentation? I want to indent comments in my QTextEdit.

    Thank you for any suggestions.

    Qt Code:
    1. void MyHighlighter::highlightBlock(const QString &text)
    2. {
    3. QTextCharFormat myClassFormat;
    4. myClassFormat.setFontWeight(QFont::Bold);
    5. myClassFormat.setForeground(Qt::darkMagenta);
    6. QString pattern = "\\bMy[A-Za-z]+\\b";
    8. QRegExp expression(pattern);
    9. int index = text.indexOf(expression);
    10. while (index >= 0) {
    11. int length = expression.matchedLength();
    12. setFormat(index, length, myClassFormat);
    13. index = text.indexOf(expression, index + length);
    14. }
    15. }
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode

    Default Re: Change the indentation with QSyntaxHighlighter

    Do you want to perform indentation by adding extra spaces or tabs or by some other means?
