Hi Vicent,

I thing you are clear enough. When I run your code and tried to
reproduce your problem, I noticed that selection is actually right, only
cells are not repainted to visualize this new selection, because in your
TableView.updateView() method you disconnecting all slots from
selectionChanged signal, not only your trackSelection() slot.

When you update the line to this:


everything seems to work fine.
