PyQt5 – Finding item through their role in comboBox

In this article we will see how we can find the item through the role in combo box, by default when we create a combo box and add items to it no role is set to the items. In order to set role use setItemData method.

In order to find the item we will use findData method.

Syntax : combo_box.findData(role)

Argument : It takes string as argument i.e role

Return : It returns index of the given role if role doesn’t exist it return -1
