[Solved] Qt - How to select item in tree widget?
I was trying to write code that selects an item in a tree if it exists.
Here is what I have so far:
@if a != "":
item = QtGui.QTreeWidgetItem(tree)
but this seems to just add it to the tree & select it. I just want it to select the item if it exists in the tree not re-add it. Help!!

I just want it to select the item if it exists in the tree not re-add it.
But that's exactly what you implemented.
if you want to search for an item, you have to do something like this (this is C++):
if (a != "")
QTreeWidget* pTree = ...; // this is your tree widget pointer
QList<QTreeWidgetItem *> itemList = pTree->findItems(a);

Yeah, that was the only way I thought could work.
I'll try searching for the item like you say & then setting it to current item.
(I'll get back with code if it works out for people who might need it in the future.)
Seems to be missing some parameters for:
@QList<QTreeWidgetItem *> itemList = pTree->findItems(a);@
I'm not sure about the Qt::MatchFlags parameter..
Nvm, got it:
if a != "":
list = tree2.findItems(a, QtCore.Qt.MatchExactly, 0)
for i in list:
Hope that helps for anyone else!! :)
