PyQT question

1 New Member
Well, I've been having a bit of an issue with PyQT, and where does ggl "pyqt help" take me? Here of course.

Alrighty, so here goes. I've just recently started using PyQT (Wednesday to be exact), and I'm rather new to both Python and QT. Fortunately it seems to be pretty easy to use. I've got one small problem though. When doing things that take a really long time, like urllib.urlretri eve() 'ing a large file, the GUI hangs until the command finishes. The program still works, just, it'd be nice if the GUI would still be working in the process. I had a feeling running the urllib.urlretri eve() in another thread might have worked, but it looks like it would be really, really tricky to do in PyQT (though it is really, really simple to do in a regular python program). Anyone have any ideas?

Dear All, I am fairly new to Python. I have found it an easy language to learn and a very usefull one for many tasks. Currently I am working on a python project that involves a GUI and it was suggested that PyQt is the best way to design that GUI. However since PyQt is rather new, I have not found much documentation on it, or examples in it. The only useful tutorial/book I have found is at www.opendocspublishing.com/pyqt/ but it is...

I am kind of new to Python, and after trying and using wxPython, I found it kind of lacking in easy-to-read documentation, speed at loading, and GUI response-time. So I am looking for an another GUI toolkit that is cross-platform for Python, and am leaning toward PyQt (PyGTK is kind of dull looking in comparison). Unfortunately, although TrollTech says Qt is cross-platform, its license strategy has me a bit confused. So here is to...

OK, so I'm at the stage where I want to make a choice between wxPython and PyQt. Currently I'm using wxPython mainly due to the fact that it has GPL Linux and Windows versions. I prefer Qt to wxWindows, but am confused with all the Windows licensing issues. For the moment this is just for my own tinkering and utility apps, but

Hi, I wanted to run a program that is written in PyQt on my mac, and went over to Riverbank to get PyQ 3.13 and SIP 4.1.1 sources. I followed the installation guide except for the compiling python as Macosx already has python. I had no problem with compiling SIP and also no problem with compiling PyQt nor did I have any error message during make install.

After quite a while of wxPython I'm getting back into PyQt, mainly due to the announcement by Trolltech that they will make a GPL version of Qt4 for Windows (and Phil-T said he will make a PyQt to go with it eventually!) I'm currently using PyQt 3.12 that comes with the BlackAdder demo, it seems to work fine with Python 2.3.5 except that it doesn't support the WinXP look'n'feel, the QStyle "WindowsXP" isn't included, and using a...

I've narrowed down my toolkit selection for my project to wxPython and pyQt, and now i'd like to hear any opinions, war stories, peeves, etc, about them, particularly from anyone who's used _both_toolkits_. I'm only mildly interested in the IDEs and UI designers for each, as i want to do as much as i can in just Xemacs and xterm. Feel free to rant, rave, pontificate, whatever. t.i.a., E

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
