Detailed Description

The QtAbstractEditorFactoryBase provides an interface for editor factories.

An editor factory is a class that is able to create an editing widget of a specified type (e.g. line edits or comboboxes) for a given QtProperty object, and it is used in conjunction with the QtAbstractPropertyManager and QtAbstractPropertyBrowser classes.

When using a property browser widget, the properties are created and managed by implementations of the QtAbstractPropertyManager class. To ensure that the properties' values will be displayed using suitable editing widgets, the managers are associated with objects of QtAbstractEditorFactory subclasses. The property browser will use these associations to determine which factories it should use to create the preferred editing widgets.

Typically, an editor factory is created by subclassing the QtAbstractEditorFactory template class which inherits QtAbstractEditorFactoryBase. But note that several ready-made implementations are available:

QtCheckBoxFactory QtDateEditFactory QtDateTimeEditFactory QtDoubleSpinBoxFactory QtEnumEditorFactory QtLineEditFactory QtScrollBarFactory QtSliderFactory QtSpinBoxFactory QtTimeEditFactory QtVariantEditorFactory
