Setting the value of one cell in QTableWidget fills everything.

  1. I've just started PyQt programming and I've run into this little
    problem. When I set the text of one cell in my table, all the other
    cells fill with that value.

    All I wanted to do was run a loop, printing in each cell the row and
    column number.
    Here's the code.


    from PyQt4 import QtGui,QtCore
    import sys

    class mywindow(QtGui.QWidget):
    def __init__(self,parent=None):

    def filltable(self):
    for column in range(self.mytable.columnCount()):
    for row in range(self.mytable.rowCount()):
    items.setText("row: " + str(row) + " column: " +

    Here you create a *single* object named item [why not "item" instead?]
    Here you set the *same* item all over the table.

  3. ....because you have only created a single QTableWidgetItem instance, rather
    than one for each cell.
    Move the creation of the QTableWidgetItem() to the inner loop (and call
    it "item" rather than "items").
