  • Hello all,
    i need to make an ui with QtDesigner for batch editing choosen maya scenes in a database:
    when the user change the QComboBox 'EpisodeList',
    the QListWidget 'ShotsList' must refreshing for multi selecting shots...
    then run a script on selecteds shots when the QPushButton 'OKbtn' is pressed
    but as i'm a newbee my python script doesn't seems to work... at all... any help is welcome

    projectsDir= "X:/path/"
    def getWindow():
        ptr = mui.MQtUtil.mainWindow()
        return sip.wrapinstance(long(ptr), QtCore.QObject)
    uiFile = os.path.join(os.path.dirname(__file__), 'Gui/ProjectManagerQuestion.ui')
    form_class, base_class = uic.loadUiType(uiFile)
    class ProjectManagerQuestion(base_class, form_class):
        def __init__(self, parent = getWindow()):
            super(base_class, self).__init__(parent)
            self.setObjectName('Batch Maya Scenes')
            self.setWindowTitle('Batch Maya Scenes')
            #list the contents of the directory
            Episodes = os.listdir(projectsDir)
            for folders in Episodes :
            QtCore.QObject.connect(self.ShotsList, QtCore.SIGNAL('itemClicked(QListWidgetItem *)'), self.select_ShotsList)
            QtCore.QObject.connect(self.OKbtn, QtCore.SIGNAL('clicked()'), self.create_Scenes)
            QtCore.QObject.connect(self.cancelbtn, QtCore.SIGNAL('clicked()'), self.closeApp)
        def select_ShotsList(self, *args):
            sel_Shots = [ str(eachref.text()) for eachref in self.ShotsList.selectedItems() ]
            sel_Shots_List = []
            for eachref in sel_Shots:
                print sel_Shots
        def create_Scenes(self, *args):
            print 'create_Scenes'
        def closeApp(self, *args):

    can you explain what " does not seem to work " means? what do you expect and what do you get? any errors?

  • Hello the_,
    first I don't know how to record the QComboBox named 'EpisodeList' when the user change it
    and how to make this entry refreshing the QListWidget 'ShotsList'
    but maybe i d'ont have the good vocabulary to explain,
    i dont have any errors , as it doesn't do anything

  • @gnngnn

    For the QComboBox you should connect either QComboBox::activated(int) or QComboBox::currentIndexChanged(int) (see QComboBox::activated and QComboBox::currentIndexChanged ) to a slot which updates the content of your QListWidget


    changed from c++ qt doc to python qt doc ;)

  • Many thanks the_!! it's working perfectly :)
