I'm using QCompleter in my QGIS plugin. The code below works well, but I'd love to make it more sophisticated. In this example I have some strings that are composed of some words, for example "How to use QCompleter". In this moment, to see the completer I need to start writing by the first word ("How"). I'm wondering if there's a way to see the completer also writing in the LineEdit any word in the string, for example "to" or "use".

strList = ["Prove PyQt5", "How to use Qcompleter", "I love StackExchange"] 
completer = QCompleter()
model = QStringListModel()
  • P.s. I know that the question is a bit off-topic, but I also know that here there are some people that are able to solve this problem. – Lorenzo Jan 29 at 18:49

You can use Qt.MatchContains flag as filter mode.

from PyQt5.QtCore import Qt
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import QCompleter

completer = QCompleter()

  • Hi, many thanks once again. I always have trouble finding the right documentation for Qt. – Lorenzo Jan 29 at 19:12
  • I editted the link. In previous link, just three of them are implemented for QCompleter. – Kadir Şahbaz Jan 29 at 19:16
