    Default Show variable in color on UI

    I would like to show the value of the variable "filestatus" in the following line of code in blue. How?

    Qt Code:
    1. self.ui.title.setText(str("My Tax Info Based on a Filing Status of: " + filestatus))
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    Thanks

    If "title" is a QLabel, you can format your string in Rich Text Format (RTF) using the subset of HTML supported by the rich text engine.

    Qt Code:
    1. self.ui.title.setText(str("My Tax Info Based on a Filing Status of: <font color=blue>" + filestatus + "</font>" ))
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode

    Please use CODE tags when posting source code so it is more readable. Click "Go Advanced" and then the "#" icon to insert the tags. Paste your code between them.
