    Default Setting a cursor on QTextEdit

    Hi!
    Was just wondering how to set the mouse cursor on the QTextEdit.
    setCursor() doesn't work.
    viewPort()->setCursor() does work, but when I compile the program to an *.exe, and run it, that line makes it crash.

    And I don't want to use QApplication::setOverrideCursor...

    Anyone able to help me?

    Thanks

    setCursor() doesn't work.
    Sure it doesn, if you use it right!

    Show us your code.

    Quite simple:
    The pointing hand cursor won't override the default IBeam (isn't it ?)

    Qt Code:
    1. #include "myclass.h"
    2. myClass::myClass(QWidget *parent)
    3. : QTextEdit(parent)
    4. {
    5. setMouseTracking(true);
    6. }
    7.  
    8. myClass::~myClass()
    9. {
    10.  
    11. }
    12.  
    13. void myClass::mouseMoveEvent(QMouseEvent *event)
    14. {
    15. setCursor(Qt::PointingHandCursor);
    16. }
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode

    Try
    Qt Code:
    1. viewport()->setMouseTracking(true);
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode

    But wouldn't that just help if mouseMoveEvent wasn't called?
    Because mouseMoveEvent is getting called everytime I move the mouse.
    setCursor() just doesn't work for me

    How about
    Qt Code:
    1. viewport()->setCursor(Qt::PointingHandCursor);
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 
    then?

    The weird about this is that in my new little test program
    Qt Code:
    1. #include "myclass.h"
    2.  
    3. myClass::myClass(QWidget *parent)
    4. : QTextEdit(parent)
    5. {
    6. viewport()->setCursor(Qt::PointingHandCursor);
    7. }
    8.  
    9. myClass::~myClass()
    10. {
    11.  
    12. }
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    that actually does work, but not in my big program.

    *scratching my head*

    Well, this does work for me anyway:
    Qt Code:
    1. QWidget *viewPort = viewport();
    2. viewPort->setCursor(Qt::PointingHandCursor);
    3. setViewport(viewPort);
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode
