QListWidget: Avoid name duplicates when using the persistent editor
Joel Bodenmann last edited by Joel Bodenmann
When using the persistent editor provided by the QListWidget to modify the text of a QListWidgetItem, what is the best way to make sure that the user does not enter a text that is already taken by another item?
Retrieving the list of the item names is not my problem but I don't understand what's the best way to check if the currently entered text is unique before it is applied.
Thank you for your help.
Hi and welcome to devnet,
One way to do it is to create a custom QValidator using your list of name as validation point
Hope it helps

@SGaist Thank you very much for your quick reply.
Using a QValidator does indeed seem to make sense. However, from reading the documentation of the QListWidget I couldn't figure out how I would apply / submit my custom QValidator class to the persistent editor. Can you give me a quick hint?
The same way you would for a QTableView, have a look at setItemDelegate and it's various incarnations
