Detailed Description

The Q3SqlEditorFactory class is used to create the editors used by Q3DataTable and Q3SqlForm.

Q3SqlEditorFactory is used by Q3DataTable and Q3SqlForm to automatically create appropriate editors for a given QSqlField. For example if the field is a QVariant::String a QLineEdit would be the default editor, 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 Q3SqlEditorFactory and reimplement the createEditor() function.

See also Q3DataTable and Q3SqlForm.

Member Function Documentation

Q3SqlEditorFactory::Q3SqlEditorFactory(QObject * parent = 0)

Constructs a SQL editor factory with parent parent.


Destroys the object and frees any allocated resources.

[virtual] QWidget * Q3SqlEditorFactory::createEditor(QWidget * parent, const QVariant & variant)

Reimplemented from Q3EditorFactory::createEditor().

Creates and returns the appropriate editor widget for the QVariant variant.

The widget that is returned has the parent parent (which may be zero). If variant is invalid, 0 is returned.

[virtual] QWidget * Q3SqlEditorFactory::createEditor(QWidget * parent, const QSqlField * field)

This is an overloaded function.

Creates and returns the appropriate editor for the QSqlField field.

[static] Q3SqlEditorFactory * Q3SqlEditorFactory::defaultFactory()

Returns an instance of a default editor factory.

[static] void Q3SqlEditorFactory::installDefaultFactory(Q3SqlEditorFactory * factory)

Replaces the default editor factory with factory. All Q3DataTable and Q3SqlForm instantiations will use this new factory for creating field editors. Q3SqlEditorFactory takes ownership of factory, and destroys it when it is no longer needed.
