QTreeView & custom Model showing columns of checkboxes



  • Hi,

    I wanted to have a tree view which shows the item name, the item description, and two related Boolean values in respective columns. I started by modifying the "Editable Tree Mode example":http://doc.qt.digia.com/qt/itemviews-editabletreemodel.html, so there's a TreeModel that keeps track of a group of TreeItems, each of which not only has a list of child TreeItems, but also a list of QVariants which stores a set of values that can later be displayed in columns in the QTreeView.

    I managed to add two more columns for two Boolean values. I also searched through the net on how to add checkboxes for QTreeView and QAbstractItemModel. I managed to have the checkboxes on the two Boolean columns working okay, as well as the rest of the tree hierarchy. Yet all the items in each column renders a checkbox and a line of text now.

    Here's the parts where I've modified from the example, mainly within TreeModel.

    treemodel.cpp:
    @
    bool TreeModel::isBooleanColumn( const QModelIndex &index ) const
    {
    bool bRet = false;
    if ( !index.isValid() )
    {
    }
    else
    {
    bRet = ( index.column() == COLUMN_BOL1 ) || ( index.column() == COLUMN_ BOL2 );
    }
    return bRet;
    }

    Qt::ItemFlags TreeModel::flags(const QModelIndex &index) const
    {
    if (!index.isValid())
    return 0;

    if ( isBooleanColumn( index ) )
    {
        return Qt::ItemIsEnabled | Qt::ItemIsUserCheckable;
    }
    else
    {
        return Qt::ItemIsEditable | Qt::ItemIsEnabled | Qt::ItemIsSelectable;
    }
    

    }

    QVariant TreeModel::data(const QModelIndex &index, int role) const
    {
    if (!index.isValid())
    return QVariant();

    if (role != Qt::DisplayRole && role != Qt::EditRole && role != Qt::CheckStateRole )
        return QVariant();
    
    TreeItem *item = getItem(index);
    if ( role == Qt::CheckStateRole && isBooleanColumn( index ) )
    {
        Qt::CheckState eChkState = ( item->data( index.column() ).toBool() ) ? Qt::Checked : Qt::Unchecked;
        return eChkState;
    }
    return item->data(index.column());
    

    }

    bool TreeModel::setData(const QModelIndex &index, const QVariant &value, int role)
    {
    if (role != Qt::EditRole && role != Qt::CheckStateRole )
    return false;

    TreeItem *item = getItem(index);
    bool result;
    if ( role == Qt::CheckStateRole && isBooleanColumn( index ) )
    {
        Qt::CheckState eChecked = static_cast< Qt::CheckState >( value.toInt() );
        bool bNewValue = eChecked == Qt::Checked;
        result = item->setData( index.column(), bNewValue );
    }
    else
    {
        result = item->setData(index.column(), value);
    }
    
    if (result)
        emit dataChanged(index, index);
    
    return result;
    

    }
    @

    mainwindow.cpp:
    @MainWindow::MainWindow(QWidget *parent)
    : QMainWindow(parent)
    {

    QStringList headers;
    headers << tr("Title") << tr("Description") << tr("Hide") << tr("Lock");
    QFile file(":/default.txt");
    file.open(QIODevice::ReadOnly);
    TreeModel *model = new TreeModel(headers, file.readAll());
    file.close();

    }
    @

    The checkboxes under the non-Boolean columns don't respond to user input, and the text under the Boolean columns aren't editable. So functionality-wise there's nothing wrong, but it's still bothersome as far as UI goes.

    I'm moving onto having QTreeWidget do the same thing. Meanwhile, I'm couldn't help but wonder if there's something else I'm missing here. I heard one solution is to have a custom delegate; is that the only option?

    If there's anyone who can point out what else I need to do, or provide a similar example, I will greatly appreciate it.
