PyQt5 – QTableWidget

  • Last Updated : 11 May, 2020

In this article, we will learn how to add and work with a table in our PyQt5 application. A table is an arrangement of data in rows and columns and widely used in communication, research, and data analysis. We can add one or more tables in our PyQt application using QTableWidget.

For a better understanding of the concept, we will take an example where we want to display the name and the city of different people in a table in our application. We can extract the data from a database, JSON file, or any other storage platform.

Example:




import sys
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import * 
                    
   
#Main Window
class App(QWidget):
    def __init__(self):
        super().__init__()
        self.title = 'PyQt5 - QTableWidget'
        self.left = 0
        self.top = 0
        self.width = 300
        self.height = 200
   
        self.setWindowTitle(self.title)
        self.setGeometry(self.left, self.top, self.width, self.height)
   
        self.createTable()
   
        self.layout = QVBoxLayout()
        self.layout.addWidget(self.tableWidget)
        self.setLayout(self.layout)
   
        #Show window
        self.show()
   
    #Create table
    def createTable(self):
        self.tableWidget = QTableWidget()
  
        #Row count
        self.tableWidget.setRowCount(4
  
        #Column count
        self.tableWidget.setColumnCount(2)  
  
        self.tableWidget.setItem(0,0, QTableWidgetItem("Name"))
        self.tableWidget.setItem(0,1, QTableWidgetItem("City"))
        self.tableWidget.setItem(1,0, QTableWidgetItem("Aloysius"))
        self.tableWidget.setItem(1,1, QTableWidgetItem("Indore"))
        self.tableWidget.setItem(2,0, QTableWidgetItem("Alan"))
        self.tableWidget.setItem(2,1, QTableWidgetItem("Bhopal"))
        self.tableWidget.setItem(3,0, QTableWidgetItem("Arnavi"))
        self.tableWidget.setItem(3,1, QTableWidgetItem("Mandsaur"))
   
        #Table will fit the screen horizontally
        self.tableWidget.horizontalHeader().setStretchLastSection(True)
        self.tableWidget.horizontalHeader().setSectionResizeMode(
            QHeaderView.Stretch)
   
if __name__ == '__main__':
    app = QApplication(sys.argv)
    ex = App()
    sys.exit(app.exec_())
