NAME

       QEditorFactory - Used to create editor widgets for QVariant data types

SYNOPSIS

       #include <qeditorfactory.h>

       Inherits QObject.

       Inherited by QSqlEditorFactory.

   Public Members
       QEditorFactory ( QObject * parent = 0, const char * name = 0 )
       ~QEditorFactory ()
       virtual QWidget * createEditor ( QWidget * parent, const QVariant & v )

   Static Public Members
       QEditorFactory * defaultFactory ()
       void installDefaultFactory ( QEditorFactory * factory )

DESCRIPTION

       The QEditorFactory class is used to create editor widgets for QVariant data types.

       Each editor factory provides the createEditor() function which given a QVariant will
       create and return a QWidget that can edit that QVariant. For example if you have a
       QVariant::String type, a QLineEdit would be the default editor returned, whereas a
       QVariant::Int's default editor would be a QSpinBox.

       If you want to create different editors for fields with the same data type, subclass
       QEditorFactory and reimplement the createEditor() function.

       See also Database Classes.

MEMBER FUNCTION DOCUMENTATION

QEditorFactory::QEditorFactory ( QObject * parent = 0, const char * name = 0 )

       Constructs an editor factory with parent parent, called name.

QEditorFactory::~QEditorFactory ()

       Destroys the object and frees any allocated resources.

QWidget * QEditorFactory::createEditor ( QWidget * parent, const QVariant & v ) [virtual]

       Creates and returns the appropriate editor for the QVariant v. If the QVariant is invalid,
       0 is returned. The parent is passed to the appropriate editor's constructor.

       Reimplemented in QSqlEditorFactory.

QEditorFactory * QEditorFactory::defaultFactory () [static]

       Returns an instance of a default editor factory.

void QEditorFactory::installDefaultFactory ( QEditorFactory * factory ) [static]

       Replaces the default editor factory with factory.  QEditorFactory takes ownership of
       factory, and destroys it when it is no longer needed.
