smartside 0.1.2

Makes PySide a little smarter.

Latest Version: 0.1.6

SmartSide is one of many available ways to have PySide signals connected in a easy way.

Example of what it can do for you

Suppose you have designed a GUI using Qt Designer

Compile it with:

pyside-uic.exe myform.ui -o

#if you have resources included compile them too
pyside-rcc.exe myresources.qrc -o

Then use a code like this to show your form and bind some signals:

from PySide.QtGui import *
from PySide.QtCore import *
import sys
from myform_ui import *
from smartside import *

class MyApplication(QtGui.QMainWindow, Ui_MainWindow, SmartSide):
    def __init__(self, parent=None):
        super(MyApplication, self).__init__(parent)

    #will respond to stateChanged signal from checkBox widget
    #notice the double underline between widget name and signal name
    def _on_checkBox__stateChanged(self):
        print 'check', self.sender().isChecked()

    #will respond to pressed signal of btn_add widget
    def _on_btn_add__pressed(self):
        print 'btn_add was pressed'

    #list some widgets and can also use regex `regex`, to select multiples
    #starting with underline is mandatory
    _myfuncs = 'btn_base, btn_format, `btn_.+log.+`, btn_sqr'
    #will respond to clicked signal of all widget listed above
    def _when_myfuncs__clicked(self):
        print 'multiples', self.sender()

if __name__ == "__main__":
    app = QtGui.QApplication(sys.argv)
    window = MyApplication()
    #uncomment line below to print a list of ALL signals available on your form

Your form is supposed to be called Ui_MainWindow in this example.

First we use setupUi as usual to create the interface.

Then auto_connect will connect member functions to signals when they match.

The last case use a multiple connection, so more then one widgets will call the same callback function. You can also use regex to select related widgets. In the example above we have selected a few widgets by its explicit name and also all widget whose name starts with 'btn\_' and have 'log' in some part of its name. All of them are going to be connected to _when_myfuncs__clicked.

More to come

A few other functions are planed for future versions.

Development: - please use this space if you found a problem or think any other task on PySide can be simplified.
