Hello! I've got a question about implementation of a standart tree model for TreeView.

I have a response from database that lools like

[A, [a,b,c]],

And I want to pass it through treemodel to treeview, for in GUI it looks like that:


I've took a look at example, that comes with PyQT4, but in that example they retrieve data from a text file, where tree structure is marked by tabs. and I cannot realize how I can modify this standart example for it works with my data...

I'll be thankful for any help...

Finally I've fount a solution!

               self.parents[-1].appendChild(TreeItem(lineData, self.parents[-1]))  
               columnData = line[1]  
               self.parents.append(self.parents[-1].child(self.parents[-1].childCount() - 1))  
               for j in columnData:  
                    self.parents[-1].appendChild(TreeItem(j, self.parents[-1]))  
               if len(self.parents) > 0:  
  class TreeItem(object):  
      def __init__(self, data, parent=None):

      def data(self, column):  
              return self.itemData  
          except IndexError:  
              return None  
      def parent(self):

              return self.parentItem.childItems.index(self)  
          return 0  
      def setData(self, data):  
          self.itemData = data

Now it works but I still don't know how to add a support for several columns in this model...

Could someone explain to me how setupModelData works??
