I recently incorporated an Rviz widget into my custom GUI, and the Rviz Python bindings require the use of 'python_qt_binding' (I used to just directly import PyQt4). Unfortunately, this is causing some problems in the rest of my code. When using from python_qt_binding.QtCore import *, I am now getting a NameError when attempting to create QStringList or QStringListModel objects (NameError: global name 'QStringList' is not defined).

Am I doing something wrong, or am I expected to work around this?

I guess python_qt_binding is not handling these types very well since they are treated special in the bindings. I am not sure if that is easily fixable in python_qt_binding but I have filled a ticket for that:

For your specific case I would suggest to just use plain Python strings and Python lists of strings. That should work seemless with the QStringListModel API. And in Python 3.x the types QString / QStringList will go away anyway. So it would make your code also more future proof.

python_qt_binding uses PyQt4 with SIP API version 2. And for that there are no QString / QStringList types defines anymore. Please see for more information.
