You should be able to replace the view with a QTableView using the
QComboBox's setView() method. You will probably have to configure it to
show things exactly the way you want them.

As to only getting values from the first column, I'm not sure how the view
affects this so it may just work with the setModelColumn() call you used
but I've not tried this.
