Thread: Vertical label text

  1. #1

    Default Vertical label text

    Hi all,
    I searched the forum, but couldn't find a similar post on this topic.

    What I need is a way to orient the text of a label in vertical, i.e. up towards down or vice versa.
    I guess I won't be using a layout, since the label must be precisely positioned by the user over a background bitmap (I can use setGeometry()).

    Any hints will be appreciated.

    Massimo

    A QLabel widget supports only horizontal text. If you can use QGraphicsScene to compose your bitmap + label, then you could use QGraphicsPixmapItem to contain the image, and a QGraphicsTextItem (with rotation) for the text. If the letters have to be stacked:

    M
    y
    L
    a
    b
    e
    l

    instead of simply rotated, then you can derive from QGraphicsTextItem and override the paint(), boundingRect(), and other methods as required.

    Thanks for your reply, but why are you asking if I CAN use QGraphicsScene?
    Can you point me to a sample showing these QGraphics classes?

    Thanks

    Qt comes with a huge variety of example projects and tutorials, including many for the Graphics / View framework. I'd suggest you start there and let Google be your friend.
