View Full Version : TableView resizeColumnsToContents Slow on large sets of data.

I have a table with about 8000 rows and 10 columns. I noticed doing a resizeColumnsToContents is really slow. To speed this up I was going to implement my own that will take the max of the first 25 cells in each column and use that as the column width. Each Cell uses a custom delegate so I want to use the delegate's sizeHint for each cell. Calling sizeHintForIndex( QModelIndex ) does not seem to return the delegate's sizeHint. How can I get the delegate's sizeHint for each cell?

QAbstractItemDelegate::sizeHint()

shouldn't sizeHintForIndex() call that for me? Maybe I am missing something here but it seems like poor implementation to provide a function that returns a sizeHint that makes no sense.

What should I use for QStyleOptionViewItem ? The TableView or Delegate do not appear to have a getQStyleOptionViewItem function (that I can find).

Maybe it does but it also does a bunch of other stuff. You asked for a method "returning the delegate's size hint" -- it's called sizeHint().

I don't understand what you mean.

It depends on what you want to get a size hint for.

I would have thought that TableView->sizeHintForIndex() returns the sizeHint of the delegate used for that cell. It does not make sense that it would return a different sizeHint since the table uses the delegate's sizeHint to make the cell the correct size.

The delegate is only a part of the size calculation aspect.

Sure it does. What if you drag the table header with the mouse increasing the column/row size? Should the sizeHint still be what the delegate reports?
