    Default How to display an icon or image in a Windows Form using Qt Designer?

    Hello:

    I'm creating a Windows Form in Qt Designer, and I would wish to add a check mark icon (or red cross icon) to validate an entry in an edit field. What control can I use to display this icon or image?

    Thanks
    Gus

    Use a QLabel with a QPixmap and place it in a layout next to the line edit. You can set the pixmap to be a check mark, an X, or nothing depending on how you want to display the status of the edit field's contents.

    You could also think about using a QValidator or a QCompleter on the line edit if that is feasible to prevent the user from entering the wrong thing in the first place.

    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.
