I'm trying to determine the best approach to supporting
in a PyQt application, and to what extent PyQt supports
unicode, etc... Has anyone here had any success / experience that they
So far I have been looking at the QTranslator class but have not managed
a working example yet.
I wrote the following sample PyQt app based off of the Qt linguist
tt1.cpp but it does not work. Any ideas what could be wrong? I am
on solaris, hpux, linux, and nt w/ python2.0, qt2.3.0, sip2.4 and
The orig C++ tt1.cpp does work.
# BEGIN tt1.py:
from qt import *
def main ( ):
appTopLevel = QApplication ( sys.argv )
appTranslator = QTranslator ( None )
# After creating a "tt1_la.qm" file (using the C++ code and Qt
linguist) the next
# line does not appear to do anything.
#appTranslator.load ( "tt1_la", "." )
# I though this was my best bet but it doesn't seem to work either...
appTranslator.insert ( 'QPushButton', 'Hello world!', 'Orbis, te
# The QTranslatorMessage class has not yet been implemented in PyQt.
#appTranslator.insert ( QTranslatorMessage ( 'QPushButton', 'Hello
# None, 'Orbis, te saluto!' ) )
appTopLevel.installTranslator ( appTranslator )
hello = QPushButton ( QPushButton.tr('Hello world!'), None );
appTopLevel.setMainWidget ( hello )
hello.show ( )
appTopLevel.exec_loop ( )
if __name__ == '__main__': main ( )
# END tt1.py
Also, any plans for a PyQt version of the Qt linguist tools?
