    Question Item Selection in QListWidget

    I am using a QListWidget and would like to programatically select one or more row entries in this widget. In reading the Qt 4.2.2 documentation it appears I must call...
    Qt Code:
    1. addLst->selectionModel()->select( index, QItemSelectionModel::Select );
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 
    ...where index is either a QModelIndex or QItemSelection object.

    While I know what the row index is that I want to select, I don't know how to translate that into either QModelIndex or QItemSelection objects. There is a conceptual void here for me.

    1. Am I attempting to select in the correct manner?
    2. How do I translate my row index into the correct Qt object?

    Thanks

    Well, there's a convenience method available too, see QListWidgetItem::setSelected().

    See QListWidget::itemFromIndex().
