QT 4.6 : QListView will not show an updated model without focus

I moved an application I wrote and use from Qt 4.2 to Qt 4.6. I have a widget where there is a QListView associated with a QStringListModel. I type in a text box, hit enter and add text to the QStringListModel. In Qt 4.2 this would cause QListView to automatically show the updated model. In 4.6 the updated view is only shown if QListView has focus. So now I have to setFocus() on the QListView and then setFocus() on the text box to make QListView show the updated model.

Bugreport

And we think these computers will be taking care of us in our old age.
Sigh.

PS. On the plus side, 4.2 had a bug where a text edit would not accept the enter key and would pass it onto the parent widget which would cause a dialog box with a text edit to be accepted. That has been fixed.

Trolltech giveth and trolltech taketh.

  1. You have to emit dataChanged.

  2. I don't think so. I'm not reimplementing the class.

Flowing text in inkscape (Poster making)

You can flow text into arbitrary shapes in inkscape. (From a hint here).

You simply create a text box, type your text into it, create a frame with some drawing tool, select both the text box and the frame (click and shift) and then go to text->flow into frame.

UPDATE:

The omnipresent anonymous asked:
Trying to enter sentence so that text forms the number three...any ideas?
The solution:
Type '3' using the text toolConvert to path using object->pathSize as necessaryRemove fillUngroupType in actual text in new text boxSelect the text and the '3' pathFlow the text

Drawing circles using matplotlib

Use the pylab.Circle command

import pylab #Imports matplotlib and a host of other useful modules cir1 = pylab.Circle((0,0), radius=0.75, fc='y') #Creates a patch that looks like a circle (fc= face color) cir2 = pylab.Circle((.5,.5), radius=0.25, alpha =.2, fc='b') #Repeat (alpha=.2 means make it very translucent) ax = pylab.axes(aspect=1) #Creates empty axes (aspect=1 means scale things so that circles look like circles) ax.add_patch(cir1) #Grab the current axes, add the patch to it ax.add_patch(cir2) #Repeat pylab.show()
