[PyQt] Catching Qt exceptions in PyQt

Howdy! I had a major problem with this myself and after doing some research
I finally found a solution in eventFilters (
) which is basically the same thing only you don't need to mess with
class wrappers and stuff =]
Here is my example that I used. Pretty simple, and you'll need to adjust it
for your specific problem and you'll need to look at (
http://doc.trolltech.com/4.3/qevent.html) for all the event code. It just
gave me a traceback at the point I verified it errored, in this case when I
clicked the object.
def eventFilter(self, obj, event):
if event.type() == QtCore.QEvent.MouseButtonRelease:
#Pass the event onto the parent window.
return QtCore.QObject.eventFilter(self, obj, event)
Then you just install the filter, like so, to everything that you suspect
Later, now that there would be a need for it, I could write up one that
gives you an action instead of a number, but I'm not up for something so
tedious at 0210 =]
