I am trying to add new rows to QSqlRelationalModel which is represented in QTableView. This new row is populated by the user, and on fieldChange should be submitted to DB.

I have set proper QSqlRelationalDelegate and proper QSqlRelations in the model:
Qt Code:
  1. self.table_model = QSqlRelationalTableModel(main, database)
  2. self.table_model.setJoinMode(QSqlRelationalTableModel.JoinMode.LeftJoin)
  3. table_name = 'book_of_accounts'
  4. self.table_name = table_name
  5. self.table_model.setTable(table_name)
  7. self.table_model.setRelation(4, QSqlRelation('account_type', 'id', 'name'))
  8. self.table_model.setRelation(7, QSqlRelation('subconto1', 'id', 'name'))
  9. self.table_model.setRelation(8, QSqlRelation('subconto2', 'id', 'name'))
  10. self.table_model.setRelation(9, QSqlRelation('subconto3', 'id', 'name'))
  12. self.table_model.setEditStrategy(QSqlTableModel.EditStrategy.OnFieldChange)
  13. self.table_model.select()
  15. self.tableView = QtWidgets.QTableView(self.verticalLayoutWidget)
  16. self.tableView.setModel(self.table_model)
  17. self.tableView.setItemDelegate(QSqlRelationalDelegate(self.tableView))
To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

Displaying and updating existing data from the database works fine. Columns with related data change to Comboboxes and I can choose options from the related tables.

However, when I try to create a new record by adding a row to the model, Comboboxes allow me to choose the proper value from the dropdown list, but after choosing it, the value changes to the ID of the related record as if no relational delegate was set:

Qt Code:
  1. def addRow(self):
  2. count = self.table_model.rowCount(QModelIndex())
  3. self.table_model.insertRows(count, 1)
  4. self.tableView.scrollToBottom()
  5. self.tableView.selectRow(count)
To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

Here is how I can choose a correctly displayed option:

But once I close the editor, the text is replaced with a foreign key:

Once I fill out all fields and select another row, the data is submitted and the row is displayed correctly again. So this only happens while adding a new row.

I am using a QFilterSortProxyModel too, but it has no effect on the described behavior. This bug is persistent in both pyqt5 and pyqt6.

While debugging I discovered that in QSqlRelationalDelegate`s setModelData, model.data() contains the corresponding foreign keys when the method is executed.

I have a SO question, which describes the problem with a bit more code as context.

Am I missing something obvious here? How can tackle this issue?
