PyQt5 table


In this article you will learn how to use tables with PyQt5.

PyQt5 table

To add a table, you will need to import QTableWidget and QTableWidgetItem.

from PyQt5.QtWidgets import QTableWidget,QTableWidgetItem

A table is created with:

self.tableWidget = QTableWidget()
 
# set row count
self.tableWidget.setRowCount(4)
 
# set column count
self.tableWidget.setColumnCount(2)

To add individual cells:

self.tableWidget.setItem(X,Y, QTableWidgetItem("TEXT"))

The full PyQt5 table code is below:

import sys
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import QMainWindow, QApplication, QWidget, QAction, QTableWidget,QTableWidgetItem,QVBoxLayout
from PyQt5.QtGui import QIcon
from PyQt5.QtCore import pyqtSlot
 
class App(QWidget):
 
    def __init__(self):
        super().__init__()
        self.title = 'PyQt5 table - pythonspot.com'
        self.left = 0
        self.top = 0
        self.width = 300
        self.height = 200
        self.initUI()
 
    def initUI(self):
        self.setWindowTitle(self.title)
        self.setGeometry(self.left, self.top, self.width, self.height)
 
        self.createTable()
 
        # Add box layout, add table to box layout and add box layout to widget
        self.layout = QVBoxLayout()
        self.layout.addWidget(self.tableWidget) 
        self.setLayout(self.layout) 
 
        # Show widget
        self.show()
 
    def createTable(self):
       # Create table
        self.tableWidget = QTableWidget()
        self.tableWidget.setRowCount(4)
        self.tableWidget.setColumnCount(2)
        self.tableWidget.setItem(0,0, QTableWidgetItem("Cell (1,1)"))
        self.tableWidget.setItem(0,1, QTableWidgetItem("Cell (1,2)"))
        self.tableWidget.setItem(1,0, QTableWidgetItem("Cell (2,1)"))
        self.tableWidget.setItem(1,1, QTableWidgetItem("Cell (2,2)"))
        self.tableWidget.setItem(2,0, QTableWidgetItem("Cell (3,1)"))
        self.tableWidget.setItem(2,1, QTableWidgetItem("Cell (3,2)"))
        self.tableWidget.setItem(3,0, QTableWidgetItem("Cell (4,1)"))
        self.tableWidget.setItem(3,1, QTableWidgetItem("Cell (4,2)"))
        self.tableWidget.move(0,0)
 
        # table selection change
        self.tableWidget.doubleClicked.connect(self.on_click)
 
    @pyqtSlot()
    def on_click(self):
        print("\n")
        for currentQTableWidgetItem in self.tableWidget.selectedItems():
            print(currentQTableWidgetItem.row(), currentQTableWidgetItem.column(), currentQTableWidgetItem.text())
 
if __name__ == '__main__':
    app = QApplication(sys.argv)
    ex = App()
    sys.exit(app.exec_())
