Hello guys.
I am having trouble with QTabWidget:
I can't add multiple widgets with addTab nor insertTab.
even when I try something like:

self.widget1 = QListWidget()
self.widget2 = QPushButton("Foo")
self.widget3 = QLabel("Bar")
self.tabs = QTabWidget()
layout = QVBoxLayout()
layout.addWidget(self.widget1)
layout.addWidget(self.widget2)
layout.addWidget(self.widget3)
self.tabs.addTab(layout, "Foobar")

It will raise an error that the first argument (layout) is wrong. :/
Please, any help?

There is not enough code here or enough of the error message to help you. If you are not using a class,

the "self." will yield errors. This is an example using QVBoxLayout that hopefully will help.

Yes I am using classes, here is some more information:
Here is a snippet of the code that I am having trouble with:

import sys
import os
from PyQt4.QtCore import *
from PyQt4.QtGui import *

class PyQtFrontend(QDialog):

    def __init__(self, rp,parent=None):
        super(PyQtFrontend, self).__init__(parent)

        """Initialize our widgets."""


        self.tabs = QTabWidget()
        self.rpNameLabel = QLabel("Name:")
        self.rpName = QLineEdit("default")
        self.rpName.selectAll()

        self.createPointButton = QPushButton("Create")


        self.layout = QVBoxLayout()
        self.layout.addWidget(self.rpNameLabel)
        self.layout.addWidget(self.rpName)
        self.layout.addWidget(self.createPointButton)
        self.tabs.addTab(self.layout, "Create Tab")

And here's the exception that gets thrown:

self.tabs.addTab(self.layout, "Create Tab")
TypeError: argument 1 of QTabWidget.addTab() has an invalid type.

I'm still using qt3, but it should be somewhere in the vicinity of this

self.tab_1 = QWidget()
        self.tab_1.setObjectName("Create Tab")
        self.tabs.addTab(self.tab_1, "")
        self.layout.addWidget(self.tabs)

That works for one widget, but what I am trying to achieve is to add multiple widgets to the same tab.

I will only give you a hint since the answer is obvious. The variable is named self.tab_1.

I don't really understand :|
I tried that with a layout but it didn't work :$
