    Default how to set check box on QTableWidget's header

    Hi All ,


    I'm trying to implement a table widget which has checkable items in it.


    And I want to place a check box on the horizontal header to let user "Check
    All" and "Uncheck All" by checking or unchecking this check box.

    Does anybody know how to do this?

    I tried the following:

    QTableWidgetItem* item = new QTableWidgetItem("Check");
    item->setCheckState(Qt::Checked);
    table->setHorizontalHeaderItem(0, item);

    But the header does not have a check box on it.



    Thanks in advance

    You need to subclass QHeaderView, paint the checkboxes within paintSection(), handle mouse events and replace the original header with your custom one in the view itself.
    Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is futile.

    Please ask Qt related questions on the forum and not using private messages or visitor messages.
