Synopsis

Detailed Description

QActionGroup is a base class for classes grouping classes inhheriting QAction objects together.

In some situations it is useful to group QAction objects together. For example, if you have a Left Align action, a Right Align action, a Justify action, and a Center action, only one of these actions should be active at any one time. One simple way of achieving this is to group the actions together in an action group, inheriting QActionGroup .
