QItemDelegate with QComboBox and QSpinBox with QTableView control (how to pass signal)

  • Hi Forum,
    I wonder if someone can put me in the right direction, with his/her wisdom and skill of Qt programming as I have following logic issue with my project:

    1/ I am using three different controls of delegate with QtableView

    i ) ProdIdDelegate public QItemDelegate creates a QcomboBox delegate for m_prodid
    ii ) QtySpinDelegate public QitemDelegate create a QspinBox delegate for m_qty
    iii ) TaxCDelegate public QitemDelegate create a QcomboBox delegate for m_taxcode

    2/ All these delegate integrated within QtableView control using a *m_modelo as a class of QstandardItem.
    3/ there are altogether 7 column in QtableView control
    4/ Delegate m_prodid get filled with database table field product code and ready for selection as drop-down items list.
    4/ All three delegate has a SIGNAL/SLOT respectively their appropriate scan n search
    QcomboBox(m_prodid) : CurrentIndexChanged(QString) SLOT (myscan descript_n_price)

    The real question is:
    Upon selection of any item from the drop-down combo box its search result such as description and price can be displayed in the QtableView’s column with real-time effect ie number of time same row selection changed, the description, a price must change along with immediate effect and display must be updated at same time.

    The problem is the signal emitted by CurrentIndexChange by combo box remain within their local source file it does not cross into the main control of QtableView source file, where all formatted data displayed and calculated.

    1. do not use QItemDelegate. use QStyledItemDelegate
    2. I think all you need is connecting QComboBox::currentIndexChanged to a lambda that calls QStyledItemDelegate::commitData inside createEditor. Something like connect(comboBox, static_cast<void(QComboBox::*)(int)>(&QComboBox::currentIndexChanged),this,[comboBox,this](){commitData(comboBox);});

    Thank you, Ronin.


    Subheading: QStyledItemDelegate vs. QItemDelegate
    What I noticed, there is the only difference between these two control is paint function which uses
    current style. My requirement as follows:

    1/ After selection from drop-down combo-box; search table for a items description and price; these two pieces of information is a string. And display in model or table-view, with concurrent synchronisation, in events selection changes.
    2/ Currently the prodId delegate work as expected mean it created an editor, data model, geometry etc along with SLOT which fire up and search the database table for a selected item. But it a requires mouse click or an interrupt to a message handler to display in the main program's TableView control. This synchronisation is failing to achieve the delegate.

    3/ I tried your advice to derive a prodIddelegate class from QStyledItemDelegate but failed to achieve an intended objective, as I poised to have in my plan.
    4/ An Idea is without mouse click or keyboard interrupt the selected data must be displayed in the TableView control and updated as selection changes. Unlike in QListbox control a slot named 'selchange' which does not require any interrupt from a mouse.

  • Just to clarify, you want a mechanism that allows people to just hover over an option in the combobox and that, in turn, will populate the rest of the data in the module to reflect the option under the mouse?

  • Yes. using mouse and keyboard's up n down an action. and refresh the retrieval values to their corresponding variable, without any further interruption for only for that row in the TableView main display.
    If you prefer I can attach a cut down version of a project.

  • @shylock said in QItemDelegate with QComboBox and QSpinBox with QTableView control (how to pass signal):

    If you prefer I can attach a cut down version of a project.

    That would be really useful

  • @VRonin
    I wonder did anyone managed to figure out, above stated problem logic?
    Although I have a crude solution for the same problem which works. But I am interested to have more efficient and less CPU intensive solution, I am sure there were many Qt experts exists on the Forum with huge points in their credit, surely may have to jog their Qt knowledge to an extra mile or on a treadmill?

  • @shylock Sorry, I was away for a few days, I'll have a look at it today

  • Unfortunately the posted code is not enough to test it.

    A few notes/questions:

    • What should QStyledItemDelegate m_siDelegate; do?
    • ProdIdDelegate::paint doesn't do anything. is that what you want?
    • ProdIdDelegate::sizeHint why do you reimplement it? just delete it
    • ui->mytableView->openPersistentEditor why do you use this if you are using a custom delegate?
    • Why do you call a query evey time to refresh the combo instead of just using a member QSqlTableModel?
    • What should ProdIdDelegate::m_proid, ProdIdDelegate::m_description, ProdIdDelegate::m_price represent?

  • @VRonin
    1/ The vars editor,model,index simply to reuse them instead of having a warning messages.
    2/ ProdIdDelegate::paint does not do anything due it does not have a handle of myTableView control which
    resides in dialog class, hence it cant precisely paint the column 2 and 3
    3/ Ignore::sizeHint function it is there and according to QStyledItemDelegate help note this function can be
    4/ First time SQL Query called to fill or populate the QComboBox for user's selection, after selection prodId
    The second time SQL Query called find description and price. Although This can be amalgamated in a single
    call. But I thought since I have a Signal to process I can use this facility to re-scan the table again with
    prodId pick the Description, and Price; this info extracted from a SQLITE3 table and displayed in
    Dialog::myTableView table column 1 and 3 respectively. m_prodId, m_description, are string variable and
    m_price is double.
    5/ If you see the attached png file will explain a bit more in details.

  • @VRonin
    The posted code file Dialog.cpp; from constructor, if you remove two variables, whose code is not posted
    m_qtyspinDelegate= new QtySpin(this);
    m_vatDelegate = new VATDelegate(this);

    This program a compile successfully and run with single QComboBox Delegate.

  • I'm missing the ui file.

    Btw it looks like you are trying to use the delegate to do something that should not do. a delegate should paint and handle the edit of 1 and only 1 QModelIndex.

    Remove ui->mytableView->openPersistentEditor as it just destroys performance.

    this is a possible implementation of a combo box delegate I had around:

    Thank you, Ronin,
    Although I am going through the codes, I have attached my bog standard cut down version of the program, it is not an efficient way to complete and I am still looking a more tangible solution to complete the project.
    Your provided class seems to more help a QComboBox and its various virtual functions.
    AS you mentioned in the last post I am trying to do away different nature of job from QStyledItemDelegate class; perhaps you are right and in my judgment, if QStyledItemDelegate class provide a facility such as combo box, spin box, progress bar sliders, and other controls can be embedded into QTableView, QListView, QTreeView then their functionality can be must be more transparent to an extend functionality suited to a developer. As in this case nothing new as you can depict from the png image.
    I am still grappling with real-time synchronization with two combo box and qty spin box selection, with their changes while displaying info on the QTableView Grid in a formatted manner.

    I am afraid your provided class logic simply does not work as it cannot be instantiated, the function
    paint is persistent in the paint state for QVariants; even the list become exhausted, it gave me far more aggro to embed within QTableView.
    A basically I am still at Square One! The requirements (ie problem) remained stirring at me more vehemently than ever, I bet I have to go deep undercover in Qt's systems source code to do a bit of hacking.
