    Default How to display text in a push button on top of (not above) an icon?

    Hi,

    I need to display a push button (for example an instance of QPushButton) which would contain an icon and text.

    I do not want the text to show beside, above or below the icon. I want the text to show ON TOP OF the icon. That is, I want the icon to be centered in the push button, and I also want the text to be centered in the push button. Then the text will hide part of the icon below it, and that's OK.

    I have found several threads on this and other forums explaining how to display text beside, above or below an icon within a push button, but nothing that would solve what I want.

    Any idea?

    1) Determine the size of the text, e.g. using QFontMetrics.
    2) Create a QPixmap with that size.
    3) Paint the icon into that pixmap on the wanted position.
    4) Paint the text on the pixmap.
    5) Use that pixmap on the button

    Cheers,
