How to display data returned from Oracle procedure in a different order in QTableWidget?

  • I have some data returned from an Oracle stored proc in this order:

    Col1, Col2, Col3, Col4, Col5

    But I want to display it in my QTableWidget like this:

    Col2, Col5, Col3, Col4

    Col1 is a primary key so I don't want it displayed in the table.

    Now this is a very simple example and I know I can use setColumnHidden and moveSection but in my app there are screens that have 50+ columns, this would obviously take forever,

    Is there a more efficient way to do this? I have many stored procs that return data in a certain order but I don't want to display it in that order to the user in my QTableWidget. Using PYQT5, displaying data in a QTableWidget. I will have some comboBoxes, Date fields, strings, integers....

    Any type of sample code would be great but anything to get me pointed in the right direction would be helpful....

    l_query = cursor.callproc('MYPROC_PD', (l_cur,))
    l_results = l_query[0]
    allSQLRows = l_results.fetchall()

    A proxy model comes to mind for that see QAbstractProxyModel and the classes related.

    Hope it helps

  • Currently I'm using:
    Import cx_oracle
    Connection = cx_oracle.connect()
    Cursor = connection.cursor()
    ProcResults =cursor.callproc()

    I'm assuming I can't use this now and need to use something from QsqlQuery? Can I pass that a stored procedure?

    Sorry, I've read QTableView rather than Widget.

    If you populate a QTableWidget with the result of your query you don't need any special stuff, just put the data where you want them directly.

    If you take the QTableView + QSqlQueryModel then you should take a look at the SQL driver chapter of Qt's documentation where the support for stored procedure is discussed.

  • I just thought it wouldn't be very clean to just say:

    Query result(3) put into 6th column in table widget and so on.....

    Thought there may be a cleaner way to link result set and column positions.

    Is there an advantage of using qtTableView in your 2nd example over what I'm currently doing?

    You avoid having to create and/or update and/or re-create items for your QTableWidget when you call the stored procedure again.
