    Default QtSql.QSqlRelationalDelegate Validation

    Hi Everyone,

    I have subclassed both a QSqlRelationalTableModel and a QtSql.QSqlRelationalDelegate. My question is with validation when editing a cell.

    I have a createEditor method where I specify a line edit and add a regular expression validator to the lineEdit. The user can double click the cell and then click a different cell in the model and then the editor closes.

    This allows the user to not enter anything into the cell and skip the validator. Is this normal behavior? How would I prevent the editor from closing until the regular expression is met?

    Do I need to subclass the method commitAndCloseEditor to get this to work?

    Qt Code:
    1. def createEditor(self, parent, option, index):
    2. """
    3. This creates the editors and returns the widget used to edit the item
    4. specified by index for editing.
    6. The parent widget and style option are used to control how the
    7. editor widget appears.
    8. """
    10. if index.column() == EVENT_ALIAS:
    11. lineEdit = QtGui.QLineEdit(parent)
    12. regex = QtCore.QRegExp(r"[a-zA-Z0-9_]{3,60}")
    13. validator = QtGui.QRegExpValidator(regex, parent)
    14. lineEdit.setValidator(validator)
    15. return lineEdit
    17. # Else return the base method createEditor.
    18. else:
    19. return super(Delegate, self).createEditor(parent, option, index)
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode

    Default Re: QtSql.QSqlRelationalDelegate Validation

    I think I found a workaround.

    In the setModelData I make sure that the length is greater then 3 before calling setData.

    Qt Code:
    1. def setModelData(self, editor, model, index):
    2. """
    3. Gets data from the editor widget and stores it in the specified model
    4. at the item index.
    6. The default implementation gets the value to be stored in the data model
    7. from the editor widget's user property.
    8. """
    10. # Call the setData method and set the data to the editors text. This
    11. # allows the user to write the edit text back to the model.
    12. if index.column() in [2, 3]:
    13. # Only set the data if the len of the text is greater then 3.
    14. # This means the data will not be set if it is less then 3.
    15. # this will force the validator to be met here.
    16. if len(editor.text()) >3:
    17. model.setData(index, QtCore.QVariant(editor.text()))
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode
