Detailed Description

The QListWidget class provides an item-based list widget.

QListWidget is a convenience class that provides a list view similar to the one supplied by QListView, but with a classic item-based interface for adding and removing items. QListWidget uses an internal model to manage each QListWidgetItem in the list.

For a more flexible list view widget, use the QListView class with a standard model.

List widgets are constructed in the same way as other widgets:

     QListWidget *listWidget = new QListWidget(this);

The selectionMode() of a list widget determines how many of the items in the list can be selected at the same time, and whether complex selections of items can be created. This can be set with the setSelectionMode() function.

There are two ways to add items to the list: they can be constructed with the list widget as their parent widget, or they can be constructed with no parent widget and added to the list later. If a list widget already exists when the items are constructed, the first method is easier to use:

     new QListWidgetItem(tr("Oak"), listWidget);
     new QListWidgetItem(tr("Fir"), listWidget);
     new QListWidgetItem(tr("Pine"), listWidget);

If you need to insert a new item into the list at a particular position, it is more required to construct the item without a parent widget and use the insertItem() function to place it within the list. The list widget will take ownership of the item.

     QListWidgetItem *newItem = new QListWidgetItem;
     newItem->setText(itemText);
     listWidget->insertItem(row, newItem);

For multiple items, insertItems() can be used instead. The number of items in the list is found with the count() function. To remove items from the list, use takeItem().

The current item in the list can be found with currentItem(), and changed with setCurrentItem(). The user can also change the current item by navigating with the keyboard or clicking on a different item. When the current item changes, the currentItemChanged() signal is emitted with the new current item and the item that was previously current.

Property Documentation

count : const int

This property holds the number of items in the list including any hidden items.

See also supportedDropActions().

void QListWidget::editItem ( QListWidgetItem * item )

Starts editing the item if it is editable.

bool QListWidget::event ( QEvent * e )   [virtual protected]

Reimplemented from QObject::event().

Finds items with the text that matches the string text using the given flags.

QModelIndex QListWidget::indexFromItem ( QListWidgetItem * item ) const   [protected]

Returns the QModelIndex assocated with the given item.

void QListWidget::insertItem ( int row, QListWidgetItem * item )

void QListWidget::itemActivated ( QListWidgetItem * item )   [signal]

This signal is emitted when the item is activated. The item is activated when the user clicks or double clicks on it, depending on the system configuration. It is also activated when the user presses the activation key (on Windows and X11 this is the Return key, on Mac OS X it is Ctrl+0).

QListWidgetItem * QListWidget::itemAt ( const QPoint & p ) const

Returns a pointer to the item at the coordinates p.

QListWidgetItem * QListWidget::itemAt ( int x, int y ) const
