This example illustrates some MVC functionality provided by builtin Views (WTreeView, WTableView and PieChart) and models.

  • The example uses WTreeView and WTableView widgets for rendering a Model's data in a tree or a table.
  • A WSortFilterProxyModel implement sorting and filtering for another model.
  • These item views have support for drag and drop of a selection of items.
  • You can use nested layout managers (horizontal and vertical WBoxLayout) for an automatic window-filling layout, with optional resize handles.
  • Modal (and non-modal) dialogs can be used to prompt for input.
  • You may show a context-sensitive WPopupMenu.
