Problem with changing QStackedWidget index

Let me describe my problem. I’m using PySide2, QtDesigner and Python. In QtDesigner i created QStakedWidget and promoted my custome pages. Im using project structure suggested here https://stackoverflow.com/a/53926554/14071081. I want to access window = MainWidget() to change currentIndex to 0 when pushButton in Add_Strategy_Page_Rule is clicked. Creating new object of MainWidget doesn’t work so i thought that only way is to chatch/import somehow window from mainWindow.py. Simply importing main via import main in add_stratrgy_rule_page.py causes: screen from console Is there a solution/tric for this?

Answer

I manage to solve this problem. I have moved setCurrentIndex () to main.py and accessed it by name declared custom Widget in QStackedWIdget.

class MainWidget(Base, Form):
    def __init__(self, parent=None):
        super(self.__class__, self).__init__(parent)
        self.setupUi(self)
        self.add_strategy_rule_page.pushButton.clicked.connect(lambda: self.changeIndex())

    def changeIndex(self):
        self.widget_pages.setCurrentIndex(0)

Whole solution u can download from here: https://github.com/kornelHub/65428201 Problem seems easy now, but back days i didn’t see that. 🙂
