Combo Boxes in Item Views

Sample code to use combo boxes as editor widgets in an item view or item widget.

The delegate creates a combo box if the index is in the second column of a list view. For the other columns it just returns the default editor, that "QStyledItemDelegate":http://doc.qt.io/qt-5.0/qtwidgets/qstyleditemdelegate.html creates.

File itemdelegate.h

// —— File itemdelegate.h ——

#include <QStyledItemDelegate>

class ComboBoxItemDelegate : public QStyledItemDelegate

 ComboBoxItemDelegate(QObject *parent = 0);

virtual QWidget *createEditor( QWidget *parent, const QStyleOptionViewItem &amp;option, const QModelIndex &amp;index ) const;
 virtual void setEditorData ( QWidget *editor, const QModelIndex &amp;index ) const;
 virtual void setModelData ( QWidget *editor, QAbstractItemModel *model, const QModelIndex &amp;index ) const;



File itemdelegate.cpp

// —— File itemdelegate.cpp ——
#include "itemdelegate.h"
#include <QComboBox>

ComboBoxItemDelegate::ComboBoxItemDelegate(QObject '''parent)
 : QStyledItemDelegate(parent)


QWidget''' ComboBoxItemDelegate::createEditor( QWidget *parent, const QStyleOptionViewItem &amp;option, const QModelIndex &amp;index ) const
 // ComboBox ony in column 2
 if(index.column() != 1)
 return QStyledItemDelegate::createEditor(parent, option, index);

// Create the combobox and populate it
 QComboBox *cb = new QComboBox(parent);
 int row = index.row();
 cb->addItem(QString("one in row %1").arg(row));
 cb->addItem(QString("two in row %1").arg(row));
 cb->addItem(QString("three in row %1").arg(row));
 return cb;

void ComboBoxItemDelegate::setEditorData ( QWidget *editor, const QModelIndex &amp;index ) const
 if(QComboBox '''cb = qobject_cast<QComboBox'''>(editor)) {
 // get the index of the text in the combobox that matches the current value of the itenm
 QString currentText = index.data(Qt::EditRole).toString();
 int cbIndex = cb->findText(currentText);
 // if it is valid, adjust the combobox
 if(cbIndex >= 0)
 } else {
 QStyledItemDelegate::setEditorData(editor, index);

void ComboBoxItemDelegate::setModelData ( QWidget *editor, QAbstractItemModel *model, const QModelIndex &amp;index ) const
 if(QComboBox '''cb = qobject_cast<QComboBox'''>(editor))
 // save the current text of the combo box as the current value of the item
 model->setData(index, cb->currentText(), Qt::EditRole);
 QStyledItemDelegate::setModelData(editor, model, index);

File main.cpp

// —— File main.cpp ——

  1. include <QApplication>
  2. include <QTableWidget>
  1. include "itemdelegate.h"

int main(int argc, char *argv[]) {

QApplication a(argc, argv);
QTableWidget tw;

ComboBoxItemDelegate *cbid = new ComboBoxItemDelegate(&tw);


return a.exec(); }
