    Lightbulb QLogText & QLogTable : 2 widgets to display text log

    In Qt4, there is no basic widget which allow to display basic text like a log file. Secondly, QTextEdit, QTextBrowser or QTableWidget are very slow and need lots of memory to only display some data (for debug purpose).

    That's why I created 2 very basic widgets :
    • QLogText is like QTextBrowser but only to display plain text
    • QLogTable is like QTableWidget for plain text

    These widgets support only proportionnal font and they don't support copy/paste/cut and selection operations. Unicode text shouldn't work with these widgets.

    I don't know if these both widgets are really usable, but maybe, they could be improved thanks to this forum.

    Cool idea. Qt3 had a property for the QTextBrowser to show only plaintext but large amounts of them. Copy and paste would be nice for logfiles. You could have a look at the sourcecode of the MultiLineEdit of Qt1 or 2 to see how to do this.
    It's nice to be important but it's more important to be nice.

    I can't download log widgets!.. When I try to do it login window appears, though I'm logged in already. It seems like a bug in forum..

    I've checked the forum configuration and everything seems to be OK. Try to log out, remove all cookies and log in again.

    Does anybody have similar problems?

    Default QLogText & QLogTable : 2 widgets to display text log

    Update of a previous thread :
    In Qt4, there is no basic widget which allow to display basic text like a log file. Secondly, QTextEdit, QTextBrowser or QTableWidget are very slow and need lots of memory to only display some data (for debug purpose).

    That's why I created 2 very basic widgets :

    • QLogTable is like QTableWidget for plain text

    These widgets support only proportionnal font and they don't support copy/paste/cut and selection operations. Unicode text shouldn't work with these widgets.
