Tutorial :How to get text in QlineEdit when QpushButton is pressed in a string?



Question:

I am trying to implement a function. My code is given below.

I want to get the text in lineedit with objectname 'host' in a string say 'shost' when the user clicks the pushbutton with name 'connect'. How can I do this? I tried and failed. How do I implement this function?

import sys  from PyQt4.QtCore import *  from PyQt4.QtGui import *      class Form(QDialog):      def __init__(self, parent=None):          super(Form, self).__init__(parent)            le = QLineEdit()          le.setObjectName("host")          le.setText("Host")          pb = QPushButton()          pb.setObjectName("connect")          pb.setText("Connect")           layout.addWidget(le)          layout.addWidget(pb)          self.setLayout(layout)            self.connect(pb, SIGNAL("clicked()"),self.button_click)            self.setWindowTitle("Learning")        def button_click(self):      #i want the text in lineedit with objectname       #'host' in a string say 'shost'. when the user click       # the pushbutton with name connect.How do i do it?      # I tried and failed. How to implement this function?          app = QApplication(sys.argv)  form = Form()  form.show()  app.exec_()  

Now how do I implement the function "button_click" ? I have just started with pyQt!


Solution:1

My first suggestion is to use Designer to create your GUIs. Typing them out yourself sucks, takes more time, and you will definitely make more mistakes than Designer.

Here are some PyQt tutorials to help get you on the right track. The first one in the list is where you should start.

A good guide for figuring out what methods are available for specific classes is the PyQt4 Class Reference. In this case you would look up QLineEdit and see the there is a text method.

To answer your specific question:

To make your GUI elements available to the rest of the object, preface them with self.

import sys  from PyQt4.QtCore import SIGNAL  from PyQt4.QtGui import QDialog, QApplication, QPushButton, QLineEdit, QFormLayout    class Form(QDialog):      def __init__(self, parent=None):          super(Form, self).__init__(parent)            self.le = QLineEdit()          self.le.setObjectName("host")          self.le.setText("Host")            self.pb = QPushButton()          self.pb.setObjectName("connect")          self.pb.setText("Connect")             layout = QFormLayout()          layout.addWidget(self.le)          layout.addWidget(self.pb)            self.setLayout(layout)          self.connect(self.pb, SIGNAL("clicked()"),self.button_click)          self.setWindowTitle("Learning")        def button_click(self):          # shost is a QString object          shost = self.le.text()          print shost      app = QApplication(sys.argv)  form = Form()  form.show()  app.exec_()  


Solution:2

The object name is not very important. what you should be focusing at is the variable that stores the lineedit object (le) and your pushbutton object(pb)

  QObject(self.pb, SIGNAL("clicked()"), self.button_clicked)    def button_clicked(self):    self.le.setText("shost")  

I think this is what you want. I hope i got your question correctly :)
