Advanced Text Editing with Qt's Scribe

KDE User and Administrator Conference

KDE Developers and Users Conference 2005

Speakers: Simon Hausmann

Language: English

Check the Schedule for an overview of all talks during this conference.

With the release of version 4 there is now a public API in Qt for editing rich text. Instead of just feeding some html into QTextEdit it is now also possible to programmatically create and modify text documents. Complex objects such as lists or tables are represented by accessible C++ objects with a well-defined interface. In addition it is possible to extend Scribe with custom objects and custom text document layouting algorithms.

This talk will give an overview of Qt's new rich text API, and give some ideas how to to use it to implement advanced features useful for KDE.
