Getting started guides, How-to's, and in-depth explanation of various topics in software development.
In the final installment of Building a text editor with PyQt, we add two more extensions: inserting the current date and time into our text, and another for inserting and managing tables. In addition, we create a way of prompting users about unsaved changes before closing *Writer*.
Part three in this series on Building a text editor with PyQt begins to add bells and whistles to the word processor we've built. We'll add features including find and replace, image insertion, as well as word and symbol count.
In the previous part of my tutorial series on Building a text editor with PyQt, we created our text editor's basic skeleton and added some useful features for file management, printing, inserting lists and more. This part will focus on the format bar, which we'll populate with a number of features, including actions to change the font family, background color, alignment and more.
