QAbstractProxyModel#

The QAbstractProxyModel class provides a base class for proxy item models that can do sorting, filtering or other data processing tasks. More

Synopsis#

Detailed Description#

This class defines the standard interface that proxy models must use to be able to interoperate correctly with other model/view components. It is not supposed to be instantiated directly.

All standard proxy models are derived from the QAbstractProxyModel class. If you need to create a new proxy model class, it is usually better to subclass an existing class that provides the closest behavior to the one you want to provide.

Proxy models that filter or sort items of data from a source model should be created by using or subclassing QSortFilterProxyModel .

To subclass QAbstractProxyModel , you need to implement mapFromSource() and mapToSource() . The mapSelectionFromSource() and mapSelectionToSource() functions only need to be reimplemented if you need a behavior different from the default behavior.

Note

If the source model is deleted or no source model is specified, the proxy model operates on a empty placeholder model.

class PySide6.QtCore.QAbstractProxyModel([parent=None])#
Parameters

parentPySide6.QtCore.QObject

Constructs a proxy model with the given parent.

PySide6.QtCore.QAbstractProxyModel.createSourceIndex(row, col, internalPtr)#
Parameters
  • row – int

  • col – int

  • internalPtrvoid

Return type

PySide6.QtCore.QModelIndex

Equivalent to calling createIndex on the source model.

This method is useful if your proxy model wants to maintain the parent-child relationship of items in the source model. When reimplementing mapToSource() , you can call this method to create an index for row row and column col of the source model.

A typical use would be to save the internal pointer coming from the source model in the proxy index when reimplementing mapFromSource() and use the same internal pointer as internalPtr to recover the original source index when reimplementing mapToSource() .

PySide6.QtCore.QAbstractProxyModel.mapFromSource(sourceIndex)#
Parameters

sourceIndexPySide6.QtCore.QModelIndex

Return type

PySide6.QtCore.QModelIndex

Reimplement this function to return the model index in the proxy model that corresponds to the sourceIndex from the source model.
