PyQt: QCombobox background text color not reflected in selected state
The following code works but doesn't do in full what exactly is needed:
@nameList = ('John','Tom','Henry','Michelle','Ashish','Jo-Huang', ...)
colorNameList = ('Michelle','Jennifer','Claudia','JimSung', ...)
model = callBackObj.NameComboBox.model()
for name in nameList:
item = PyQt4.QtGui.QStandardItem(str(account))
if name in colorNameList:
Now whenever I expand and view the dropdown, the names in colorNameList appear in red background. So far so good. However when I select one of these red-background names they do not show as red-background when left selected.
Any ideas how I can ensure that on selection red items appear red and non-red appears non-red.
Hi and welcome to devnet,
Just to be sure I understand you correctly: you would like the selection highlight to be in a color similar to the background color ?
Thanks for your message and welcome.
Yes, so I want selection highlight background to have the same background color as it had when it was in not selected state.
To elaborate consider the following example that comboBox has following 3 entries:
Now when I select John OR Henry, the selected state with dropdown showing either of these values will have no background color; that is fine and expected. However on selecting Michelle the Red background is lost and it switches to No background color. I want it to retain its background Red color in selected state.
Then you should implement a custom QStyledItemDelegate and update the color of the rectangle with the state is selected
