QTableView show better seleced/focused Row

  • I have a QTableView and I must enable SingleSelection (Cell) for editing. So only the current cell gets a special background for selection.
    In this case I cannot really good see what row is/was selected, especial when I leave the tableview or I have a simple ActionButton delegate in a column.

    Is it possible to get a selection coloring like MS-Office/Access-Tables:

    The whole row gets a special background and the current selected cell an other background

    1. sublcass QStyledItemDelegate
    2. reimplement it's initStyleOption() method
    3. call the base class implementation first
    4. check the options state for selection and focus
    void MyItemDelegate::initStyleOption(QStyleOptionViewItem *option, const QModelIndex &index) const
        QStyledItemDelegate::initStyleOption(option, index);
        if( option->state & QStyle::State_Selected )
             option->backgroundBrush = QBrush( Qt::red );
        if( option->state & QStyle::State_HasFocus )
             option->backgroundBrush = QBrush( Qt::yellow );
