Overview

This article explains how to customise the Qt tree view widget (QTreeView).

Description

The QTreeView can be customised by overriding the virtual methods like drawRow() and drawBranches(). This article shows how to customise the tree view to show an image in the right-hand side of every tree view item.

Solution

A custom class QCustomTreeView is created by inheriting from QTreeView

 class QCustomTreeView : public QTreeView
{
Q_OBJECT
public:
QCustomTreeView( QWidget *parent = 0 );
~QCustomTreeView();
protected:
// QTreeView’s virtual member
void drawRow( QPainter *painter,
const QStyleOptionViewItem &options,
const QModelIndex &index ) const;
// We can also override drawBranches() member
// void drawBranches( QPainter *painter,
const QRect &rect,
const QModelIndex &index ) const;
};

QCustomTreeView class definition

 QCustomTreeView::QCustomTreeView( QWidget *parent )
: QTreeView( parent )
{
}
 
// Overriding the QTreeView’s drawRow() member
void QCustomTreeView::drawRow( QPainter *painter,
const QStyleOptionViewItem &options,
const QModelIndex &index ) const
{
// Calling the base class method for drawing the normal
// parts of the item of the QTreeView.
QTreeView::drawRow( painter, options, index );
 
// Calculate a rect for the image on the right side of the item
// We can retrieve the parent and child index of the model index
// QModelIndex parent(index.parent());
// QModelIndex child(index.child(0,0));
// Use your own logic to decide for which items the image on the
// right side should be drawn
if(index.row() == 0) {
QImage image;
image.load("c:\\data\\red.bmp");
image.scaledToHeight(options.rect.height());
image.scaledToWidth(15);
 
// Drawing the image on the right side of the item
painter->drawImage( options.rect.topRight().x() - 50,
options.rect.topRight().y(), image );
}
if(index.row() == 1) {
QImage image;
image.load("c:\\data\\blue.bmp");
image.scaledToHeight(options.rect.height());
image.scaledToWidth(15);
 
// Drawing the image on the right side of the item
painter->drawImage( options.rect.topRight().x() - 50,
options.rect.topRight().y(), image );
}
}

Using QCustomTreeView

   // Create an instance of the custom tree view
QCustomTreeView* customTree;
customTree = new QCustomTreeView( this );
 
// Populate the model for tree view
QStandardItemModel* treeModel = new QStandardItemModel( this );
QStandardItem* item1 = new QStandardItem( QIcon("c:\\data\\610x.bmp"), "Item1" );
QStandardItem* item2 = new QStandardItem( QIcon("c:\\data\\Nokia-logo.bmp"), "SubItem1" );
QStandardItem* item3 = new QStandardItem( QIcon("c:\\data\\5.bmp"), "Item2" );
QStandardItem* item4 = new QStandardItem( "SubItem2" );
QStandardItem* item5 = new QStandardItem( "SubItem3" );
item1->appendRow( item2 );
item1->appendRow( item4 );
item1->appendRow( item5 );
treeModel->appendRow( item1 );
treeModel->appendRow( item3 );
 
customTree->setModel( treeModel );
 
customTree->setHeaderHidden( true );
customTree->setAnimated( true );
customTree->setGeometry( QRect( 0, 0, 400, 500 ) );
