I have difficulty with GTKTreeView. I would like to always have an empty row at the bottom of the table, so the user can create a new entry. But the new row always defaults to 0,000 which then produces a data-point at the coordinates (0|0). Is there any way to just have an empty row at the bottom?


from gi.repository import Gtk
from matplotlib.figure import Figure
from matplotlib.backends.backend_gtk3agg import FigureCanvasGTK3Agg as FigureCanvas

class DataBase():
    def __init__(self):
        self.window = Gtk.Window()
        self.window.set_default_size(800, 500) = Gtk.Box()

        self.fig = Figure(figsize=(10,10), dpi=80) = self.fig.add_subplot(111)

        self.canvas = FigureCanvas(self.fig), True, True, 0)
        self.liststore = Gtk.ListStore(float, float)
        self.treeview = Gtk.TreeView(model=self.liststore), False, True, 0)

        self.xrenderer = Gtk.CellRendererText()
        self.xrenderer.set_property("editable", True)
        self.column_text = Gtk.TreeViewColumn("x-Value", self.xrenderer, text=0)
        self.yrenderer = Gtk.CellRendererText()
        self.yrenderer.set_property("editable", True)
        self.column_editabletext = Gtk.TreeViewColumn("y-Value", self.yrenderer, text=1)

        self.xrenderer.connect("edited", self.xedited)
        self.yrenderer.connect("edited", self.yedited)

        self.liststore.append([2.35, 2.40])
        self.liststore.append([3.45, 4.70])

    def resetplot(self):,10),10)

    def plotpoints(self):
        for row in self.liststore:
  [:1], row[1:], marker='o', s=50)

    def xedited(self, widget, path, number):
        self.liststore[path][0] = float(number.replace(',', '.'))
    def yedited(self, widget, path, number):
        self.liststore[path][1] = float(number.replace(',', '.'))

db = DataBase()

db.window.connect("delete-event", Gtk.main_quit)

I am learning to develop GTK+ (GTK 3.10) programs written in Python 3.4.0, designed with Glade 3.16.1, with plots using Matplotlib 1.4. I program and test using Ubuntu 14.04 (64bit) and Gedit. (

When using treeviews I usually store all displayed data in the model as strings, mainly because the data retrieved from a database table may include Null values. Inserting the data as string will allow you to insert empty strings to create an empty row like you want.
