How to access the text of Qtablewidget when selection behavior is select rows
I want to access the text of first column of the currently selected row, but I can't find a way similar to that of QtreeWidget.
@ if(ui->treewidget ->currentItem()->text(0)=="Something")
// then do something
but Qtablewidget doesn't support such a feature. So what to do.

The table widget equivalent of your tree widget code would be something like:
int row = ui->tableWidget->currentRow();
QString text = ui->tableWidget->item(row, 0)->text();
The current item and current selection are not necessarily related though. If you allow only single selection and have QAbstractItemView::SelectRows set then QTableWidget::selectedItems() should contain only one item with row == 0.
thanks a lot for such a nice reply!
There is a bit problem with
tableWidget->item( row, 0)-
the program crashes at this statement if the row is empty, if there is no text.
