Priority: P2: Important
Affects Version/s: 6.2.2
Fix Version/s: None
Component/s: Widgets: Widgets and Dialogs
Qt Creator v6.0.1
Windows 10 v21H1
Steps to reproduce the problem:
- Build and run the "HTTP Example" project.
- Click in the URL field to position the caret somewhere in the middle of the URL.
- Hold Shift while pressing the right arrow key a couple of times to select a couple of characters.
- The caret is still blinking at the right edge of the selection.
In native controls, such as in first-party apps from Microsoft, the caret does not blink when characters are selected. e.g., The file name field in file browse dialogs, the "Find what" field in Notepad's Edit > Find dialog, etc..
I assume the desired behaviour in Qt is to match the native control behaviour.
