How do I find the first and (more important) the last QTextBlock in a selection provided by QTextCursor?
I have a QTextEdit, and in it I want to determine the first and last selected block in the selection associated with the cursor returned by QTextEdit::textCursor().
So far I don’t see anything in the API that lets me do this.
- QTextCursor cursor = textEdit->textCursor();
- qDebug() << "your selection : " << cursor.selectionStart() << "~" << cursor.selectionEnd();
Hope this helps.
Thanks for the reply.
Unfortunately I’m not sure that helps what I’m aiming. Sorry for not going into depth about the reason earlier.
I’m actually trying to get the QTextBlock. The reason is for bulleted list management. I want to determine the text blocks that are covered by the user’s selection. So if they have parts of a bulleted lists selected (could be across different levels of indentation) I can increment/decrement the indentation of each selected block without affecting the non-selected portions of the list.
Your suggestion worked for me. Using the selectionStart() and selectionEnd() methods you pointed out along with QTextDocument::findBlock(pos) I got what I needed.
