    Default How to change the default text colour of QTextEdit?

    Hi all,

    I'm using QTextEdit. I want the program to change the text colour randomly with every character I type. So, I will get outputs that look like this:

    abcdefgh abcdefgh abcdefgh

    How to I command QTextEdit to change the "brush color" of the font when I type?

    I just need the code that tells QTextEdit to change colors whenever there's a QTextEdit::textChanged () [signal]

    Thanks!

    Instead of giving you a fish, we prefer here to teach you how to fish.
    Have a look at QTextEdit::setCurrentCharFormat().
    Ask if you get stuck.

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