In this article we will see how we can set the item 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 this we will use setItemData method

Syntax : combo_box.setItemData(index, role) 

Argument : It takes two argument one is integer i.e index or item and other is the string i.e role of item 

Action performed : It will assign role to the item

Below is the implementation – 

Python3




# importing libraries
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import *
from PyQt5 import QtCore, QtGui
from PyQt5.QtGui import *
from PyQt5.QtCore import *
import sys
 
 
class Window(QMainWindow):
 
    def __init__(self):
        super().__init__()
 
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
 
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 600, 400)
 
        # calling method
        self.UiComponents()
 
        # showing all the widgets
        self.show()
 
    # method for widgets
    def UiComponents(self):
 
        # creating a combo box widget
        self.combo_box = QComboBox(self)
 
        # setting geometry of combo box
        self.combo_box.setGeometry(200, 150, 120, 30)
 
        # geek list
        geek_list = ["Geek", "Geeky Geek", "Legend Geek", "Ultra Legend Geek"]
 
        # adding list of items to combo box
        self.combo_box.addItems(geek_list)
 
        # setting roles to the items
        self.combo_box.setItemData(0, "First role")
        self.combo_box.setItemData(1, "Second role")
        self.combo_box.setItemData(2, "Third role")
        self.combo_box.setItemData(3, "Fourth role")
 
 
 
 
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
 
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
 
# start the app
sys.exit(App.exec())
