public class QTextDocument
extends QObject

The QTextDocument class holds formatted text that can be viewed and edited using a QTextEdit. QTextDocument is a container for structured rich text documents, providing support for styled text and various types of document elements, such as lists, tables, frames, and images. They can be created for use in a QTextEdit, or used independently.

Each document element is described by an associated format object. Each format object is treated as a unique object by QTextDocuments, and can be passed to objectForFormat() to obtain the document element that it is applied to.

A QTextDocument can be edited programmatically using a QTextCursor, and its contents can be examined by traversing the document structure. The entire document structure is stored as a hierarchy of document elements beneath the root frame, found with the rootFrame() function. Alternatively, if you just want to iterate over the textual contents of the document you can use begin(), end(), and findBlock() to retrieve text blocks that you can examine and iterate over.

The layout of a document is determined by the documentLayout(); you can create your own QAbstractTextDocumentLayout subclass and set it using setDocumentLayout() if you want to use your own layout logic. The document's title can be obtained by calling the documentTitle() function.

The toPlainText() and toHtml() convenience functions allow you to retrieve the contents of the document as plain text and HTML. The document's text can be searched using the find() functions.

Undo/redo of operations performed on the document can be controlled using the setUndoRedoEnabled() function. The undo/redo system can be controlled by an editor widget through the undo() and redo() slots; the document also provides contentsChanged() , undoAvailable() , and redoAvailable() signals that inform connected editor widgets about the state of the undo/redo system.

public final QSignalEmitter.Signal1 blockCountChanged

This signal takes 1 generic argument(s). We list their type and the name they go by in the description of this signal. <java.lang.Integer(named: newBlockCount)>:

This signal is emitted when the total number of text blocks in the document changes. The value passed in newBlockCount is the new total.


contentsChange

public final QSignalEmitter.Signal3 contentsChange

This signal takes 3 generic argument(s). We list their type and the name they go by in the description of this signal. <java.lang.Integer(named: position), java.lang.Integer(named: charsRemoved), java.lang.Integer(named: charsAdded)>:

This signal is emitted whenever the document's content changes; for example, when text is inserted or deleted, or when formatting is applied.

Information is provided about the position of the character in the document where the change occurred, the number of characters removed (charsRemoved), and the number of characters added (charsAdded).

The signal is emitted before the document's layout manager is notified about the change. This hook allows you to implement syntax highlighting for the document.

See also:
QAbstractTextDocumentLayout::documentChanged(), and contentsChanged() .


contentsChanged

public final QSignalEmitter.Signal0 contentsChanged
This signal is emitted whenever the document's content changes; for example, when text is inserted or deleted, or when formatting is applied.

Information is provided about the position of the character in the document where the change occurred, the number of characters removed (charsRemoved), and the number of characters added (charsAdded).

The signal is emitted before the document's layout manager is notified about the change. This hook allows you to implement syntax highlighting for the document.

See also:
QAbstractTextDocumentLayout::documentChanged(), and contentsChanged() .


cursorPositionChanged

public final QSignalEmitter.Signal1 cursorPositionChanged

This signal takes 1 generic argument(s). We list their type and the name they go by in the description of this signal. <com.trolltech.qt.gui.QTextCursor(named: cursor)>:

This signal is emitted whenever the position of a cursor changed due to an editing operation. The cursor that changed is passed in cursor. If you need a signal when the cursor is moved with the arrow keys you can use the cursorPositionChanged() signal in QTextEdit.

isUndoAvailable

public final boolean isUndoAvailable()
Returns true if undo is available; otherwise returns false.


isUndoRedoEnabled

This property holds whether undo/redo are enabled for this document. This defaults to true. If disabled, the undo stack is cleared and no items will be added to it.


lastBlock

public final QTextBlock lastBlock()
Returns the document's last (valid) text block.


lineCount

public final int lineCount()
Returns the number of lines of this document (if the layout supports this). Otherwise, this is identical to the number of blocks.

                                    int length)
Marks the contents specified by the given position and length as "dirty", informing the document that it needs to be laid out again.


maximumBlockCount

public final int maximumBlockCount()
This property Specifies the limit for blocks in the document. Specifies the maximum number of blocks the document may have. If there are more blocks in the document that specified with this property blocks are removed from the beginning of the document.

A negative or zero value specifies that the document may contain an unlimited amount of blocks.

The default value is 0.

Note that setting this property will apply the limit immediately to the document contents.

Setting this property also disables the undo redo history.

This property is undefined in documents with tables or frames.


metaInformation

public final java.lang.String metaInformation(QTextDocument.MetaInformation info)
Returns meta information about the document of the type specified by info.

See also:
setMetaInformation().

See also:
modificationChanged() .


print

public final void print(QPrinter printer)
Prints the document to the given printer. The QPrinter must be set up before being used with this function.

This is only a convenience method to print the whole document to the printer.

If the document is already paginated through a specified height in the pageSize() property it is printed as-is.

If the document is not paginated, like for example a document used in a QTextEdit, then a temporary copy of the document is created and the copy is broken into multiple pages according to the size of the QPrinter's paperRect(). By default a 2 cm margin is set around the document contents. In addition the current page number is printed at the bottom of each page.

Note that QPrinter::Selection is not supported as print range with this function since the selection is a property of QTextCursor. If you have a QTextEdit associated with your QTextDocument then you can use QTextEdit's print() function because QTextEdit has access to the user's selection.

See also:
QTextEdit::print().


redo

public final void redo()
This is an overloaded member function, provided for convenience.

Redoes the last editing operation on the document if redo is available.

This function is called by the rich text engine to request data that isn't directly stored by QTextDocument, but still associated with it. For example, images are referenced indirectly by the name attribute of a QTextImageFormat object.

Resources are cached internally in the document. If a resource can not be found in the cache, loadResource is called to try to load the resource. loadResource should then use addResource to add the resource to the cache.

See also:
QTextDocument::ResourceType .


revision

public final int revision()

public final void setDefaultFont(QFont font)
This property holds the default font used to display the document's text.


setDefaultStyleSheet

public final void setDefaultStyleSheet(java.lang.String sheet)
The default style sheet is applied to all newly HTML formatted text that is inserted into the document, for example using setHtml() or QTextCursor::insertHtml().

The style sheet needs to be compliant to CSS 2.1 syntax.

Note: Changing the default style sheet does not have any effect to the existing content of the document.

See also:
Supported HTML Subset.


setDefaultTextOption

public final void setDefaultTextOption(QTextOption option)
This property holds the default text option will be set on all QTextLayouts in the document.. When QTextBlocks are created, the defaultTextOption is set on their QTextLayout. This allows setting global properties for the document such as the default word wrap mode.


setDocumentLayout

public final void setDocumentLayout(QAbstractTextDocumentLayout layout)
Sets the document to use the given layout. The previous layout is deleted.

See also:
documentLayoutChanged() .

setHtml

public final void setHtml(java.lang.String html)
Replaces the entire contents of the document with the given HTML-formatted text in the html string.

The HTML formatting is respected as much as possible; for example, "<b>bold</b> text" will produce text where the first word has a font weight that gives it a bold appearance: "bold text".

Note: It is the responsibility of the caller to make sure that the text is correctly decoded when a QString containing HTML is created and passed to setHtml().

See also:
setPlainText(), and Supported HTML Subset.


setIndentWidth

public final void setIndentWidth(double width)
Returns the width used for text list and text block indenting.

The indent properties of QTextListFormat and QTextBlockFormat specify multiples of this value. The default indent width is 40.


setMaximumBlockCount

public final void setMaximumBlockCount(int maximum)
This property Specifies the limit for blocks in the document. Specifies the maximum number of blocks the document may have. If there are more blocks in the document that specified with this property blocks are removed from the beginning of the document.

A negative or zero value specifies that the document may contain an unlimited amount of blocks.

The default value is 0.

Note that setting this property will apply the limit immediately to the document contents.

Setting this property also disables the undo redo history.

This property is undefined in documents with tables or frames.


setMetaInformation

public final void setMetaInformation(QTextDocument.MetaInformation info,

Replaces the entire contents of the document with the given plain text.

See also:
setHtml().


setTextWidth

public final void setTextWidth(double width)
The text width specifies the preferred width for text in the document. If the text (or content in general) is wider than the specified with it is broken into multiple lines and grows vertically. If the text cannot be broken into multiple lines to fit into the specified text width it will be larger and the size() and the idealWidth() property will reflect that.

If the text width is set to -1 then the text will not be broken into multiple lines unless it is enforced through an explicit line break or a new paragraph.

The default value is -1.

Setting the text width will also set the page height to -1, causing the document to grow or shrink vertically in a continuous way. If you want the document layout to break the text into multiple pages then you have to set the pageSize property instead.

See also:
size(), idealWidth(), and pageSize().


setUndoRedoEnabled

public final void setUndoRedoEnabled(boolean enable)
This property holds whether undo/redo are enabled for this document. This defaults to true. If disabled, the undo stack is cleared and no items will be added to it.


setUseDesignMetrics

public final void setUseDesignMetrics(boolean b)
If b is true then the layout will use design metrics; otherwise it will use the metrics of the paint device (which is the default behavior).


size

public final QSizeF size()
Returns the actual size of the document. This is equivalent to documentLayout()->documentSize();

The size of the document can be changed either by setting a text width or setting an entire page size.

Note that the width is always >= pageSize().width().

By default, for a newly-created, empty document, this property contains a configuration-dependent size.

See also:
setTextWidth(), setPageSize(), and idealWidth().


textWidth

public final double textWidth()
The text width specifies the preferred width for text in the document. If the text (or content in general) is wider than the specified with it is broken into multiple lines and grows vertically. If the text cannot be broken into multiple lines to fit into the specified text width it will be larger and the size() and the idealWidth() property will reflect that.

If the text width is set to -1 then the text will not be broken into multiple lines unless it is enforced through an explicit line break or a new paragraph.

The default value is -1.

Setting the text width will also set the page height to -1, causing the document to grow or shrink vertically in a continuous way. If you want the document layout to break the text into multiple pages then you have to set the pageSize property instead.

See also:
size(), idealWidth(), and pageSize().


toHtml

public final java.lang.String toHtml()
Returns a string containing an HTML representation of the document.

The encoding parameter specifies the value for the charset attribute in the html header. For example if 'utf-8' is specified then the beginning of the generated html will look like this:Error parsing snippet. If no encoding is specified then no such meta information is generated.

If you later on convert the returned html string into a byte array for transmission over a network or when saving to disk you should specify the encoding you're going to use for the conversion to a byte array here.

See also:
Supported HTML Subset.


toHtml

public final java.lang.String toHtml(QByteArray encoding)
Returns a string containing an HTML representation of the document.

The encoding parameter specifies the value for the charset attribute in the html header. For example if 'utf-8' is specified then the beginning of the generated html will look like this:Error parsing snippet. If no encoding is specified then no such meta information is generated.

If you later on convert the returned html string into a byte array for transmission over a network or when saving to disk you should specify the encoding you're going to use for the conversion to a byte array here.

See also:
Supported HTML Subset.

clear

public void clear()
Clears the document.


createObject

protected QTextObject createObject(QTextFormat f)
Creates and returns a new document object (a QTextObject), based on the given format.

QTextObjects will always get created through this method, so you must reimplement it if you use custom text objects inside your document.


loadResource

protected java.lang.Object loadResource(int type,
                                        QUrl name)
Loads data of the specified type from the resource with the given name.

This function is called by the rich text engine to request data that isn't directly stored by QTextDocument, but still associated with it. For example, images are referenced indirectly by the name attribute of a QTextImageFormat object.

When called by Qt, type is one of the values of QTextDocument::ResourceType .

If the QTextDocument is a child object of a QTextEdit, QTextBrowser, or a QTextDocument itself then the default implementation tries to retrieve the data from the parent.


redo

public final void redo(QTextCursor cursor)
