IMHO, this works if you have a basic knowledge about how to start, but it
seems to me you don't have that.

It's not, this was really just meant to help you get the basics

No, actually the basics of OOP I learned by studying 1 or 2 books about
Java and C++ and understanding the code-snippets they had. Only
afterwards I started to code the first applications.

Maybe you can start with walking through this tutorial:

Especially chapter 9 about classes. Then I'd suggest to find a PyQt4
example that is a bit similar to what you want to build and try to
modify it to do what you want. 


If your life was a horse, you'd have to shoot it.
