Detailed Description

The QTableWidgetItem class provides an item for use with the QTableWidget class.

Table items are used to hold pieces of information for table widgets. Items usually contain text, icons, or checkboxes

The QTableWidgetItem class is a convenience class that replaces the QTableItem class in Qt 3. It provides an item for use with the QTableWidget class.

Top-level items are constructed without a parent then inserted at the position specified by a pair of row and column numbers:

     QTableWidgetItem *newItem = new QTableWidgetItem(tr("%1").arg(
         pow(row, column+1)));
     tableWidget->setItem(row, column, newItem);

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() with the appropriate value (see Qt::ItemFlags). Checkable items can be checked and unchecked with the setCheckState() function. The corresponding checkState() function indicates whether the item is currently checked.

Subclassing

When subclassing QTableWidgetItem to provide custom items, it is possible to define new types for them so that they can be distinguished from standard items. The constructors for subclasses that require this feature need to call the base class constructor with a new type value equal to or greater than UserType.

See also QTableWidget, Model/View Programming, QListWidgetItem, and QTreeWidgetItem.


Member Type Documentation

enum QTableWidgetItem::ItemType

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

ConstantValueDescription
QTableWidgetItem::Type0The default type for table widget items.
QTableWidgetItem::UserType1000The minimum value for custom types. Values below UserType are reserved by Qt.

You can define new user types in QTableWidgetItem subclasses to ensure that custom items are treated specially.

See also type().

See also row().

QVariant QTableWidgetItem::data ( int role ) const   [virtual]

Returns the item's data for the given role.

See also setData().

Qt::ItemFlags QTableWidgetItem::flags () const

Returns the flags used to describe the item. These determine whether the item can be checked, edited, and selected.

See also setFlags().

QFont QTableWidgetItem::font () const

Returns the font used to render the item's text.

See also setFont().

QBrush QTableWidgetItem::foreground () const

Returns the brush used to render the item's foreground (e.g. text).

This function was introduced in Qt 4.2.

See also setForeground() and background().

QIcon QTableWidgetItem::icon () const

Returns the item's icon.

See also setIcon() and iconSize.

bool QTableWidgetItem::isSelected () const

Returns true if the item is selected, otherwise returns false.

This function was introduced in Qt 4.2.

See also setSelected().

void QTableWidgetItem::read ( QDataStream & in )   [virtual]

Reads the item from stream in.

See also write().

int QTableWidgetItem::row () const

Returns the row of the item in the table. If the item is not in a table, this function will return -1.

This function was introduced in Qt 4.2.

See also column().

void QTableWidgetItem::setBackground ( const QBrush & brush )

Sets the item's background brush to the specified brush.

This function was introduced in Qt 4.2.

See also background() and setForeground().

void QTableWidgetItem::setCheckState ( Qt::CheckState state )

Sets the check state of the table item to be state.

See also checkState().

Sets the item's data for the given role to the specified value.

See also Qt::ItemDataRole and data().
