    Default Center HTML text in QTextTable

    I'm trying to make a header for a QTextTable. Everything is ok, except that I can't center the text inside the cell.

    I've tried with "styles" trying to center the text (for example "style='text-align:center'"), but doesn't work.

    I'm using HTML because I need to make several subscripts that I can't make with normal text.

    How can I center the text? Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    The documentation is your friend.

    Do you write clean code? - if you are TDD'ing then maybe, if not, your not writing clean code.

    I know, but this set the alignment for the table itself. I need to align the text inside the cells.

    I think I solved the problem using:

    Qt Code:
    1. cell_cursor = table.cellAt(i, j).firstCursorPosition()
    2. cell_cursor.setBlockFormat(centerFormat)
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    Where:
    Qt Code:
    1. centerFormat = QTextBlockFormat()
    2. centerFormat.setAlignment(Qt.AlignCenter)
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    I'm using PyQt.
