      Description

      I'm finding that the color of the placeholder text cannot be changed once I've set the (for example) QLineEdit's color via a stylesheet (see the code snippet below).

      Running the code below, both the placeholder text and the text the user types into the QLineEdit are blue.

      However, if I comment out the setStyleSheet line below, I find that the placeholder text is green and the text the user types in is white.

       

      QLineEdit *pLine = new QLineEdit;
      pLine->setPlaceholderText("helpful");
      
      pLine->setStyleSheet("QLineEdit {color: rgb(0,0,255);}");
      
      QPalette palette = pLine->palette();
      palette.setColor(QPalette::PlaceholderText, QColor(0,255,0));
      pLine->setPalette(palette);
