Hi,

I need word wrap in a dialog of my app,
so I changed a LineEdit to a TextCtrl in layout editor.
That doesn't work. The ctrl frame shows garbage, i.e.
random content from some other visible window. So window
refresh somehow doesn't work. What am I missing here?

I attached a sample app. That's not the actual app I'm
developing right now. Just a toy app I did for learning
some time ago, which I modified for confirming the problem.

DocEdit.

TextCtrl is just a common base for DocEdit and LineEdit, it does not work alone.

Alright then - works.

I tried a RichTextCtrl, but it refuses to become editable.
Also it uses a huge font, which I try to override like so:

dlg.method.SetQTF("[=2 " + recipetable.Get(0, 4).ToString() + "]");
dlg.method.SetEditable(true);
dlg.method.ClearModify();


But all that is being ignored.
Well, DocEdit works for me. So it's all good for now.

I have attached screenshots of my app's main window and the dialog in question.
Left side are the sqlite database views.
Right side is the chosen recipe composed into RichTextView.
It's a cooking recipe database, if you haven't figured.

To edit rich texts, use RichEdit. It is too big to be included in CtrlLib - it is in separate package.

Try the Zoom parameter... (SetQTF).
