[PyQt] embedding iconic pushButton in TableView and/or TreeView

Woooohooooo....I got a custom delegate installed....at least partially, lol...
Using the basic QItemDelegate
I've first tried a comboBox, which seems a little more straightforward,..

When using QTableView,...the "index.column()" calls want text matching
the column headings,...but in QTreeView, the same call wants an integer index#...so my code looks like...

  def createEditor(self, parent, option, index):
      if index.column() == 0:         # Thumbnail
              button = QPushButton(parent)
              return button
      if index.column() == 4:         # Format
              comboBox = QComboBox(parent)
              return comboBox
      return QItemDelegate.createEditor(self, parent, option, index)

I was all in celebration mode,...until I began to add the initial
pushbutton/icon in the first column.....Right now, I'm just using
QPushButton and will add the image/pixmap later...

Well..the danged curious thing is....that when I run the code,
and double-click on the cells of the first column, the custom
delegate dutifully returns a nice PushButton....but my conundrum
is that I still can't figure out how to add the PushButton to the
QTreeView on startup!...<sigh>....

You may recall the data layout I'm going for is something like...

1     [icon1]       data       data      data    etc   
2     [icon2]       data       data      data    etc
3       etc
4       etc

...and later,...when a user binks on the icon, it will need to execute
a command...

So,...some progress, but still more jungle ahead,lol...<sigh>
Maybe I'll go reread your stardelegate code again ;-)
