That's right, this is about the behavior of QDataWidgetMapper (sort of a 
"view") not the model. The OP wants changes to be submitted to the model 
even if the focus never leaves the mapped widget.

I'm pretty sure that this default behavior of QDataWidgetMapper is 
actually  defined by the delegate, which is QItemDelegate by default. 
You could use QDataWidgetMapper::setDelegate() to use your own 
subclassed delegate instead.
