LaTeX: remove left margin of listing inside a table

Using LaTeX, I need to show some code snippet inside a table. Here is an example of what I'm trying to do:

\begin{document}
Par exemple :
\begin{center}
\begin{tabular}{lp{5cm}l}
\hline
Méthode & Description & Exemple d'utilisation\\
\hline
\texttt{isLetter()}& Indique si le caractère est une lettre de l'alphabet. &
\begin{lstlisting}[numbersep=0pt]
QChar MyChar('x');
bool IsLetter = MyChar.isLetter();
\end{lstlisting} \\
\hline
\texttt{toUpper()}& Retourne le même caractère mais en majuscules. & toto \\
\hline
\end{tabular}
\end{center}
\end{document}

Here is the result I get :

.

As you can see, there is a margin on the left of the code. I guess this margin is there for numbering, but I don't need numbering and would like to get rid of it. I've tried changing some options (numbersep, xleftmargin) but none is working as I wish.

UPDATE

Here is the full document demonstrating the problem :

\documentclass[a4paper,11pt]{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{lmodern,textcomp}
\usepackage[frenchb]{babel}
\usepackage{listings}

\begin{document}
   \begin{enumerate}
   \item Par exemple :
      \begin{center}
      \begin{tabular}{lp{5cm}l}
      \hline
      Méthode & Description & Exemple d'utilisation\\
      \hline
      \texttt{isLetter()}& Indique si le caractère est une lettre de l'alphabet. &
      \begin{lstlisting}[numbersep=0pt]
QChar MyChar('x');
bool IsLetter = MyChar.isLetter();
// IsLetter vaut vrai
QChar MyChar2('&');
IsLetter = MyChar2.isLetter();
// IsLetter vaut faux
      \end{lstlisting}\\
      \hline
      \texttt{toUpper()}& Retourne le même caractère mais en majuscules. & toto \\
      \end{tabular}
      \end{center}
   \end{enumerate}
\end{document}

I can deduce that the problem is because the table is in a item of an enumeration.

Is there a way to solve this ? [1]: https://i.stack.imgur.com/ONAdx.png

Yes, the margin is indeed coming from the enumeration. But luckily, the package documentation of the listing package notes:

resetmargins= true|false (default: false)

If true, indention from list environments like enumerate or itemize is reset, i.e. not used.

Therefore, the following should help:

\begin{lstlisting}[numbersep=0pt,resetmargins=true]

The problem is caused by the table environment. By default latex inserts a small space in front of a row. This can be avoided by using the code @{} before the first column specification.

\begin{tabular}{@{}lp{5cm}l}
...
\end{tabular}

For more information about @{} see this link.

Your full code example will then be

\documentclass[a4paper,11pt]{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{lmodern,textcomp}
\usepackage[frenchb]{babel}
\usepackage{listings}

\begin{document}
   \begin{enumerate}
   \item Par exemple :
      \begin{center}
      \begin{tabular}{@{}lp{5cm}l}
      \hline
      Méthode & Description & Exemple d'utilisation\\
      \hline
      \texttt{isLetter()}& Indique si le caractère est une lettre de l'alphabet. &
      \begin{lstlisting}[numbersep=0pt]
QChar MyChar('x');
bool IsLetter = MyChar.isLetter();
// IsLetter vaut vrai
QChar MyChar2('&');
IsLetter = MyChar2.isLetter();
// IsLetter vaut faux
      \end{lstlisting}\\
      \hline
      \texttt{toUpper()}& Retourne le même caractère mais en majuscules. & toto \\
      \end{tabular}
      \end{center}
   \end{enumerate}
\end{document}
