How to create filters for QTableView in PyQt


Question

I am using QTableView to display data retrieved from QtSql.QSqlQuery

I want to know how can i create filters for it like in excel.

enter image description here

In the above image i need to get the filters for All heders (Sh_Code,SH_Seq,Stage) The filters will have unique values in of that column on which we can filter.

Required result

I need the Table view header with a dropbox listing all unique values in that column just like in excel below. No need of Top,Standard filter... as shown in image. Need only "All" and the unique "column items"

enter image description here

This is from my .NET application, uploaded for more clarity

Here is an example of filtering in PyQt using QSortFilterProxyModel, QStandardItemModel and QTableView, it can be easily adapted to other views and models:

#!/usr/bin/env python
#-*- coding:utf-8 -*-

from PyQt4 import QtCore, QtGui

class myWindow(QtGui.QMainWindow):
    def __init__(self, parent=None):
        super(myWindow, self).__init__(parent)
        self.centralwidget  = QtGui.QWidget(self)
        self.lineEdit       = QtGui.QLineEdit(self.centralwidget)
        self.view           = QtGui.QTableView(self.centralwidget)
        self.comboBox       = QtGui.QComboBox(self.centralwidget)
        self.label          = QtGui.QLabel(self.centralwidget)

        self.gridLayout = QtGui.QGridLayout(self.centralwidget)
        self.gridLayout.addWidget(self.lineEdit, 0, 1, 1, 1)
        self.gridLayout.addWidget(self.view, 1, 0, 1, 3)
        self.gridLayout.addWidget(self.comboBox, 0, 2, 1, 1)
        self.gridLayout.addWidget(self.label, 0, 0, 1, 1)

        self.setCentralWidget(self.centralwidget)
        self.label.setText("Regex Filter")

        self.model = QtGui.QStandardItemModel(self)

        for rowName in range(3) * 5:
            self.model.invisibleRootItem().appendRow(
                [   QtGui.QStandardItem("row {0} col {1}".format(rowName, column))    
                    for column in range(3)
                    ]
                )

        self.proxy = QtGui.QSortFilterProxyModel(self)
        self.proxy.setSourceModel(self.model)

        self.view.setModel(self.proxy)
        self.comboBox.addItems(["Column {0}".format(x) for x in range(self.model.columnCount())])

        self.lineEdit.textChanged.connect(self.on_lineEdit_textChanged)
        self.comboBox.currentIndexChanged.connect(self.on_comboBox_currentIndexChanged)

        self.horizontalHeader = self.view.horizontalHeader()
        self.horizontalHeader.sectionClicked.connect(self.on_view_horizontalHeader_sectionClicked)

    @QtCore.pyqtSlot(int)
    def on_view_horizontalHeader_sectionClicked(self, logicalIndex):
        self.logicalIndex   = logicalIndex
        self.menuValues     = QtGui.QMenu(self)
        self.signalMapper   = QtCore.QSignalMapper(self)  

        self.comboBox.blockSignals(True)
        self.comboBox.setCurrentIndex(self.logicalIndex)
        self.comboBox.blockSignals(True)

        valuesUnique = [    self.model.item(row, self.logicalIndex).text()
                            for row in range(self.model.rowCount())
                            ]

        actionAll = QtGui.QAction("All", self)
        actionAll.triggered.connect(self.on_actionAll_triggered)
        self.menuValues.addAction(actionAll)
        self.menuValues.addSeparator()

        for actionNumber, actionName in enumerate(sorted(list(set(valuesUnique)))):              
            action = QtGui.QAction(actionName, self)
            self.signalMapper.setMapping(action, actionNumber)  
            action.triggered.connect(self.signalMapper.map)  
            self.menuValues.addAction(action)

        self.signalMapper.mapped.connect(self.on_signalMapper_mapped)  

        headerPos = self.view.mapToGlobal(self.horizontalHeader.pos())        

        posY = headerPos.y() + self.horizontalHeader.height()
        posX = headerPos.x() + self.horizontalHeader.sectionPosition(self.logicalIndex)

        self.menuValues.exec_(QtCore.QPoint(posX, posY))

    @QtCore.pyqtSlot()
    def on_actionAll_triggered(self):
        filterColumn = self.logicalIndex
        filterString = QtCore.QRegExp(  "",
                                        QtCore.Qt.CaseInsensitive,
                                        QtCore.QRegExp.RegExp
                                        )

        self.proxy.setFilterRegExp(filterString)
        self.proxy.setFilterKeyColumn(filterColumn)

    @QtCore.pyqtSlot(int)
    def on_signalMapper_mapped(self, i):
        stringAction = self.signalMapper.mapping(i).text()
        filterColumn = self.logicalIndex
        filterString = QtCore.QRegExp(  stringAction,
                                        QtCore.Qt.CaseSensitive,
                                        QtCore.QRegExp.FixedString
                                        )

        self.proxy.setFilterRegExp(filterString)
        self.proxy.setFilterKeyColumn(filterColumn)

    @QtCore.pyqtSlot(str)
    def on_lineEdit_textChanged(self, text):
        search = QtCore.QRegExp(    text,
                                    QtCore.Qt.CaseInsensitive,
                                    QtCore.QRegExp.RegExp
                                    )

        self.proxy.setFilterRegExp(search)

    @QtCore.pyqtSlot(int)
    def on_comboBox_currentIndexChanged(self, index):
        self.proxy.setFilterKeyColumn(index)


if __name__ == "__main__":
    import sys

    app  = QtGui.QApplication(sys.argv)
    main = myWindow()
    main.show()
    main.resize(400, 600)
    sys.exit(app.exec_())

To get required results, a popup menu is launched by clicking on the header, and populated with the unique values for that column. Once an item in the popup menu is selected, the value is passed to self.proxy.setFilterRegExp(filterString) and the column to self.proxy.setFilterKeyColumn(filterValue).
