One of my big gripes about PyQt5 in particular is lack of info, especially on advanced topics. This includes books. I found this on Amazon today:

Qt5 Python GUI Programming Cookbook: Building responsive and powerful cross-platform applications with PyQt https://amazon.com/dp/B079S4Q9T2/...

It was just published in July. I’m thinking I might buy the Kindle book.

On reviewer complained about lack of info on how to handle child dialogs (after fighting with child dialogs that had their own children and dialogs with threading and all that, I feel you, brother). But the 2 reviews it’s gotten look fairly positive.

I wonder how advanced the book gets. Going to read the sample later.

    @undervalued0 I definitely have. I’ve been all over the Qt5 docs. I’ve just struggled with translating them into Python.

    @undervalued0 I dunno. What’s the difference between PyQt and Qt for Python? Never heard of that.

    I know I’m stuck with both Python and Qt. Have a lot of hours and lines of code. I went with PyQt in the first place because I knew I could hook up data to grids with data models. That’s a key feature of my application. Since then I’ve had to employ QScintilla for the wizard I’m working on now because I needed its clickable text features.

    I’m invested.

    Wikipedia? Got it. Will do. Thanks a lot for that.

    @undervalued0 By the way, looks like Qt for Python is the same thing as PySide. I could be wrong, but it didn’t look to me like there was much difference between it and PyQt5. I do also read the PySide docs sometimes. Maybe I should read them more.
