Synopsis

Functions

Virtual functions

Detailed Description

Items usually contain text, icons, or checkboxes.

Each item can have its own background brush which is set with the setBackground() function. The current background brush can be found with background() . The text label for each item can be rendered with its own font and brush. These are specified with the setFont() and setForeground() functions, and read with font() and foreground() .

By default, items are enabled, editable, selectable, checkable, and can be used both as the source of a drag and drop operation and as a drop target. Each item’s flags can be changed by calling setFlags() . Checkable items can be checked and unchecked with the setCheckState() function. The corresponding checkState() function indicates whether the item is currently checked.

You can store application-specific data in an item by calling setData() .

Each item can have a two-dimensional table of child items. This makes it possible to build hierarchies of items. The typical hierarchy is the tree, in which case the child table is a table with a single column (a list).

The dimensions of the child table can be set with setRowCount() and setColumnCount() . Items can be positioned in the child table with setChild() . Get a pointer to a child item with child() . New rows and columns of children can also be inserted with insertRow() and insertColumn() , or appended with appendRow() and appendColumn() . When using the append and insert functions, the dimensions of the child table will grow as needed.

An existing row of children can be removed with removeRow() or takeRow() ; correspondingly, a column can be removed with removeColumn() or takeColumn() .

An item’s children can be sorted by calling sortChildren() .

Subclassing

When subclassing QStandardItem to provide custom items, it is possible to define new types for them so that they can be distinguished from the base class. The type() function should be reimplemented to return a new type value equal to or greater than UserType .

Reimplement data() and setData() if you want to perform custom handling of data queries and/or control how an item’s data is represented.

Reimplement clone() if you want QStandardItemModel to be able to create instances of your custom item class on demand (see setItemPrototype() ).

Reimplement read() and write() if you want to control how items are represented in their serialized form.

Reimplement operator if you want to control the semantics of item comparison. operator determines the sorted order when sorting items with sortChildren() or with sort() .

PySide2.QtGui.QStandardItem.ItemType

This enum describes the types that are used to describe standard items.

Constant

Description

QStandardItem.Type

The default type for standard items.

QStandardItem.UserType

The minimum value for custom types. Values below are reserved by Qt.

You can define new user types in QStandardItem subclasses to ensure that custom items are treated specially; for example, when items are sorted.

type()

PySide2.QtGui.QStandardItem.accessibleDescription()
Return type

unicode

Returns the item’s accessible description.

The accessible description is used by assistive technologies (i.e. for users who cannot use conventional means of interaction).

See also

insertColumn()

PySide2.QtGui.QStandardItem.appendRow(item)
Parameters

itemQStandardItem

This is an overloaded function.

Appends a row containing item .

When building a list or a tree that has only one column, this function provides a convenient way to append a single new item.

PySide2.QtGui.QStandardItem.appendRow(items)

setData()

PySide2.QtGui.QStandardItem.flags()
Return type

ItemFlags

Returns the item flags for the item.
