QtGui QListWidget adding new item problem

  • Hi everyone.

    At first:

    • My sys.version output:
      bq. 2.7.3 (default, Aug 1 2012, 05:16:07)
      [GCC 4.6.3]bq.

    • My OS:
      bq. Ubuntu
      Release 12.04 (precise) 32-bit

    I used Qt 4 Designer for my GUI. And made a form contains a QListWidget and a QPushButton.
    I want to add numbers to list widget when button clicked. I wrote the code below. It can add a blank row and fill it with firs number. In second loop it add a blank row and print this error:

    @Traceback (most recent call last:(
    File "b.py", line 48, in selectFile
    self.listWidget.item = self.listWidget.item(x)
    TypeError: 'QListWidgetItem' object is not callable@

    Here is my code:
    @# -- coding: utf-8 --

    Form implementation generated from reading ui file 'untitled2.ui'

    class Ui_Form(object:(
    def setupUi(self, Form:(
    Form.resize(658, 527)
    self.pushButton = QtGui.QPushButton(Form)
    self.pushButton.setGeometry(QtCore.QRect(170, 260, 89, 27))
    self.listWidget = QtGui.QListWidget(Form)
    self.listWidget.setGeometry(QtCore.QRect(150, 20, 256, 192))

        QtCore.QObject.connect(self.pushButton, QtCore.SIGNAL(_fromUtf8("clicked()")), self.selectFile)
    def retranslateUi(self, Form:(
        Form.setWindowTitle(QtGui.QApplication.translate("Form", "Form", None, QtGui.QApplication.UnicodeUTF8))
        self.pushButton.setText(QtGui.QApplication.translate("Form", "PushButton", None, QtGui.QApplication.UnicodeUTF8))
        __sortingEnabled = self.listWidget.isSortingEnabled()

        for x in range(0,5:(
            self.listWidget.item = self.listWidget.item(x)
            self.listWidget.item.setText(QtGui.QApplication.translate("Form", str(x), None, QtGui.QApplication.UnicodeUTF8))
            print("Worked for x="+str(x))

    if name == "main":
    import sys
    app = QtGui.QApplication(sys.argv)
    Form = QtGui.QWidget()
    ui = Ui_Form()

    What's the problem?
    Please help me.
    Sorry for bad English.

  • Hi

    I think this is a PyQt problem. In native C++ I have never encounter such a problem.
    I would suggest that you have to ask the question here again:


    Good luck.

  • Hi,

    what you do by:

    @self.listWidget.item = self.listWidget.item(x)@

    is replace the method .item() of self.listWidget by the one Item you select in the first loop.

    if you use:

    itemA = self.listWidget.item(x)
    itemA.setText(QtGui.QApplication.translate("Form", str(x), None, QtGui.QApplication.UnicodeUTF8))

    It should work

    Bon chance
