Ok I'll get straight to the point, how can a create a search box? You know, you type something in and it filters out the ones that don't match. Is there a special widget for this? Or would I have to create a normal lineedit widget and do all the filtering manually?
Hmm well it turned out a little harder than I was expecting, I am using a QListWidget, I am trying to search for items in the list, but I have a problem, I plan on clearing the list and showing the ones that match, but If i clear the list I'll delete the existing entries, should I put them in a list, dictionary, etc...?
In pseudo-code it would be something like this assuming a class format (ignoring case for now)
self.orig_list=[ "Original", "words", "you", "want", "to", "test"]
self.new_list = orig_list[:] ## first pass - to be used by test_list
for word in test_list:
## self.new_list now contains the words that match so far
## update list box from self.new_list
## not necessary to return anything since self. is used.
I thought that someone would have posted code to do this, but coding this could become so funky that no one wants to put it out there on the internet I guess.
