How to change the background of a text bloc in a text document in Qt

is there a way to change the background color of a QTextBlock in a QTextDocument without using a subclass of QAbstractTextDocumentLayout. I have tried many ways and the effects are null. I am trying from the textCursor() method of a QPlainTextEditor and it seems practically everything is const.

You could try the merge methods:

QTextCursor cur = edit->textCursor();
QTextCharFormat fmt;
fmt.setBackground(QBrush(Qt::gray));
cur.mergeBlockCharFormat(fmt);

Could this example help you ?

You can find it also in QtDemos, on Demonstrations->Text Edit.

Hope it helps!
