[Worked around] How to set header text of QAbstractItemModel in a QTreeView
I have a QTreeView, and its model is (a subclass of) a QAbstractItemModel.
The model has two columns, and they are labelled "1" and "2". I suspect this is the default labels.
I want them to be blank, so I put this into the constructor of the model to test my ability to set the header text:
@bool worked = setHeaderData(1, Qt::Horizontal, QVariant(QString("Beans")));@
Worked has the value "false". It does not work. The label does not get changed. I tried this as well:
@setHeaderData(1, Qt::Horizontal, QVariant(QString("Beans")), Qt::DisplayRole);@
and this also does not work.
How can I change the header text of a QAbstractItemModel?
I have read them. I would say they are an acceptable introduction; I have read technical documents that really are "very good", and these are not. They're acceptable, but not "very good". :) I can't recall a "very good" set of online documentation right now, but Maple's online documentation is an example of some truly horrific documentation. :)
Thanks very much. In the end, I overrode the QAbstractItemModel::headerData() function and simply intercepted any calls that wanted DisplayRole data. A bit of a silly solution, but it works.
Huh?? What do you mean with:
bq. intercepted any calls that wanted DisplayRole data
The hole point of Model/View usage is that the model holds the data, not the view or anyone else........
I mean that my subclass of QAbstractItemModel now has a function headerData(), so when the headerdata is required and that function is called, it goes through my code and I simply return the value I want.
I have no idea what value is held in the model for the header text; because I don't know how to change the value for the header text in the model, I don't fetch it from the model. Calling the model's setHeaderData function to try to set the header data did not work.
No, you have to implement/overwrite the setHeaderData your self and store the information in your model.
