Detailed Description

A toolbox is a widget that displays a column of tabs one above the other, with the current item displayed below the current tab. Every tab has an index position within the column of tabs. A tab’s item is a QWidget .

Each item has an itemText() , an optional itemIcon() , an optional itemToolTip() , and a widget() . The item’s attributes can be changed with setItemText() , setItemIcon() , and setItemToolTip() . Each item can be enabled or disabled individually with setItemEnabled() .

Items are added using addItem() , or inserted at particular positions using insertItem() . The total number of items is given by count() . Items can be deleted with delete, or removed from the toolbox with removeItem() . Combining removeItem() and insertItem() allows you to move items to different positions.

The index of the current item widget is returned by currentIndex() , and set with setCurrentIndex() . The index of a particular item can be found using indexOf() , and the item at a given index is returned by item().

The currentChanged() signal is emitted when the current item is changed.
