I see, then you probably don't want to use it :-)

I don't think QTableWidgetItem is a subclass of QWidget. It's just
easier to use when the table is just used in simple scenarios. And even
if it was a QWidget, it would need QGIS to support this particular
subclass of QWidget, which would need to be implemented first (but that
in turn could be done the way that is outlined in the blogpost linked in
the last email).

You should be able to implement such a table yourself along with a new
custom form element, and then promoting the table in QtDesigner. That
will require some work and knowledge.

I wouldn't expect it. It's not QtDesigner, it's a
QTableView/QTableWidget issue.

I'm sure that's easier and better suited.
