How to count number of visible children in a QTreeWidget

  • Hello,

    I'm trying to determine the number of visible child items in a QTreeWidget (e.g. if the bottom-level children are visible, not collapsed and hidden). So far, I've not had any luck. All elements of the tree are simple top level nodes with children.

    // count a the number of visible items
    QTreeWidget* tree = current_tree();
    int num_visible = 0;
    for (int ii = 0; ii < tree->topLevelItemCount(); ii++)
        QTreeWidgetItem* top_item = tree->topLevelItem(ii);
        if (top_item->isExpanded())
            num_visible += top_item->childCount();

    Anyone have a simple solution?

    Many thanks,

    The visualRect method comes to mind for that.
