    \class QtProperty

    \brief The QtProperty class encapsulates an instance of a property.

    Properties are created by objects of QtAbstractPropertyManager
    subclasses; a manager can create properties of a given type, and
    is used in conjunction with the QtAbstractPropertyBrowser class. A
    property is always owned by the manager that created it, which can
    be retrieved using the propertyManager() function.

    QtProperty contains the most common property attributes, and
    provides functions for retrieving as well as setting their values:

    \table
    \header \o Getter \o Setter
    \row
    \o propertyName() \o setPropertyName()
    \row
    \o statusTip() \o setStatusTip()
    \row
    \o toolTip() \o setToolTip()
    \row
    \o whatsThis() \o setWhatsThis()
    \row
    \o isEnabled() \o setEnabled()
    \row
    \o isModified() \o setModified()
    \row
    \o valueText() \o Nop
    \row
    \o valueIcon() \o Nop
    \endtable

    It is also possible to nest properties: QtProperty provides the
    addSubProperty(), insertSubProperty() and removeSubProperty() functions to
    manipulate the set of subproperties. Use the subProperties()
    function to retrieve a property's current set of subproperties.
    Note that nested properties are not owned by the parent property,
    i.e. each subproperty is owned by the manager that created it.

    \class QtAbstractPropertyManager

    \brief The QtAbstractPropertyManager provides an interface for
    property managers.

    A manager can create and manage properties of a given type, and is
    used in conjunction with the QtAbstractPropertyBrowser class.

    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.

    The QtAbstractPropertyManager class provides common functionality
    like creating a property using the addProperty() function, and
    retrieving the properties created by the manager using the
    properties() function. The class also provides signals that are
    emitted when the manager's properties change: propertyInserted(),
    propertyRemoved(), propertyChanged() and propertyDestroyed().

    QtAbstractPropertyManager subclasses are supposed to provide their
    own type specific API. Note that several ready-made
    implementations are available:

    \list
    \o QtBoolPropertyManager
    \o QtColorPropertyManager
    \o QtDatePropertyManager
    \o QtDateTimePropertyManager
    \o QtDoublePropertyManager
    \o QtEnumPropertyManager
    \o QtFlagPropertyManager
    \o QtFontPropertyManager
    \o QtGroupPropertyManager
    \o QtIntPropertyManager

    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

/*!
    \class QtAbstractEditorFactory

    \brief The QtAbstractEditorFactory is the base template class 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.

    Note that the QtAbstractEditorFactory functions are using the
    PropertyManager template argument class which can be any
    QtAbstractPropertyManager subclass. For example:

    \code
        QtSpinBoxFactory *factory;
        QSet<QtIntPropertyManager *> managers = factory->propertyManagers();
    \endcode

    Note that QtSpinBoxFactory by definition creates editing widgets
    \e only for properties created by QtIntPropertyManager.

    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.

    A QtAbstractEditorFactory object is capable of producing editors for
    several property managers at the same time. To create an
    association between this factory and a given manager, use the
    addPropertyManager() function. Use the removePropertyManager() function to make
    this factory stop producing editors for a given property
    manager. Use the propertyManagers() function to retrieve the set of
    managers currently associated with this factory.

    Several ready-made implementations of the QtAbstractEditorFactory class
    are available:

    \list
    \o QtCheckBoxFactory
    \o QtDateEditFactory
    \o QtDateTimeEditFactory
    \o QtDoubleSpinBoxFactory
    \o QtEnumEditorFactory
    \o QtLineEditFactory
    \o QtScrollBarFactory
    \o QtSliderFactory
    \o QtSpinBoxFactory
    \o QtTimeEditFactory
    \o QtVariantEditorFactory
    \endlist

    When deriving from the QtAbstractEditorFactory class, several pure virtual
    functions must be implemented: the connectPropertyManager() function is
    used by the factory to connect to the given manager's signals, the
    createEditor() function is supposed to create an editor for the
    given property controlled by the given manager, and finally the
    disconnectPropertyManager() function is used by the factory to disconnect
    from the specified manager's signals.

    \sa QtAbstractEditorFactoryBase, QtAbstractPropertyManager

/*!
    \fn QtAbstractEditorFactory::QtAbstractEditorFactory(QObject *parent = 0)

    This function is used internally by the addPropertyManager() function, and
    makes it possible to update an editing widget when the associated
    property's data changes. This is typically done in custom slots
    responding to the signals emitted by the property's manager,
    e.g. QtIntPropertyManager::valueChanged() and
    QtIntPropertyManager::rangeChanged().

    specified \a property created by the given \a manager. The
    PropertyManager type is a template argument class, and represents

    This function must be implemented in derived classes: It is
    recommended to store a pointer to the widget and map it to the
    given \a property, since the widget must be updated whenever the
    associated property's data changes. This is typically done in

    \brief QtAbstractPropertyBrowser provides a base class for
    implementing property browsers.

    A property browser is a widget that enables the user to edit a
    given set of properties.  Each property is represented by a label
    specifying the property's name, and an editing widget (e.g. a line
    edit or a combobox) holding its value. A property can have zero or
    more subproperties.

    \image qtpropertybrowser.png

    The top level properties can be retrieved using the
    properties() function. To traverse each property's
    subproperties, use the QtProperty::subProperties() function. In
    addition, the set of top level properties can be manipulated using
    the addProperty(), insertProperty() and removeProperty()
    functions. Note that the QtProperty class provides a corresponding
    set of functions making it possible to manipulate the set of
    subproperties as well.

    To remove all the properties from the property browser widget, use
    the clear() function. This function will clear the editor, but it
    will not delete the properties since they can still be used in
    other editors.

    The properties themselves are created and managed by
    implementations of the QtAbstractPropertyManager class. A manager
    can handle (i.e. create and manage) properties of a given type. In
    the property browser the managers are associated with
    implementations of the QtAbstractEditorFactory: A factory is a
    class able to create an editing widget of a specified type.

    When using a property browser widget, managers must be created for
    each of the required property types before the properties
    themselves can be created. To ensure that the properties' values
    will be displayed using suitable editing widgets, the managers
    must be associated with objects of the preferred factory
    implementations using the setFactoryForManager() function. The
    property browser will use these associations to determine which
    factory it should use to create the preferred editing widget.

    Note that a factory can be associated with many managers, but a
    manager can only be associated with one single factory within the
    context of a single property browser.  The associations between
    managers and factories can at any time be removed using the
    unsetFactoryForManager() function.

    Whenever the property data changes or a property is inserted or
    removed, the itemChanged(), itemInserted() or
    itemRemoved() functions are called, respectively. These
    functions must be reimplemented in derived classes in order to
    update the property browser widget. Be aware that some property
    instances can appear several times in an abstract tree
    structure. For example:

    \table 100%
    \row
    \o
    \code
        QtProperty *property1, *property2, *property3;

        property2->addSubProperty(property1);
        property3->addSubProperty(property2);

        QtAbstractPropertyBrowser *editor;

        editor->addProperty(property1);
        editor->addProperty(property2);
        editor->addProperty(property3);
    \endcode
    \o  \image qtpropertybrowser-duplicate.png
    \endtable

    The addProperty() function returns a QtBrowserItem that uniquely
    identifies the created item.

    To make a property editable in the property browser, the
    createEditor() function must be called to provide the
    property with a suitable editing widget.

    Note that there are two ready-made property browser
    implementations:

    \list
        \o QtGroupBoxPropertyBrowser
        \o QtTreePropertyBrowser
    \endlist

    \sa QtAbstractPropertyManager, QtAbstractEditorFactoryBase
*/

/*!
    \fn void QtAbstractPropertyBrowser::setFactoryForManager(PropertyManager *manager,
                    QtAbstractEditorFactory<PropertyManager> *factory)

    Connects the given \a manager to the given \a factory, ensuring
    that properties of the \a manager's type will be displayed with an
    editing widget suitable for their value.

    For example:

    \code
        QtIntPropertyManager *intManager;
        QtDoublePropertyManager *doubleManager;

        QtProperty *myInteger = intManager->addProperty();
        QtProperty *myDouble = doubleManager->addProperty();

        QtSpinBoxFactory  *spinBoxFactory;
        QtDoubleSpinBoxFactory *doubleSpinBoxFactory;

        QtAbstractPropertyBrowser *editor;
        editor->setFactoryForManager(intManager, spinBoxFactory);
        editor->setFactoryForManager(doubleManager, doubleSpinBoxFactory);

        editor->addProperty(myInteger);
        editor->addProperty(myDouble);
    \endcode

    In this example the \c myInteger property's value is displayed
    with a QSpinBox widget, while the \c myDouble property's value is
    displayed with a QDoubleSpinBox widget.

    Note that a factory can be associated with many managers, but a
    manager can only be associated with one single factory.  If the
    given \a manager already is associated with another factory, the
    old association is broken before the new one established.

    This function ensures that the given \a manager and the given \a
    factory are compatible, and it automatically calls the
    QtAbstractEditorFactory::addPropertyManager() function if necessary.

/*!
    \fn virtual void QtAbstractPropertyBrowser::itemInserted(QtBrowserItem *insertedItem,
        QtBrowserItem *precedingItem) = 0

    This function is called to update the widget whenever a property
    is inserted or added to the property browser, passing pointers to
    the \a insertedItem of property and the specified
    \a precedingItem as parameters.

    If \a precedingItem is 0, the \a insertedItem was put at
    the beginning of its parent item's list of subproperties. If
    the parent of \a insertedItem is 0, the \a insertedItem was added as a top
    level property of \e this property browser.

    This function must be reimplemented in derived classes. Note that
    if the \a insertedItem's property has subproperties, this
    method will be called for those properties as soon as the current call is finished.

/*!
    \fn virtual void QtAbstractPropertyBrowser::itemRemoved(QtBrowserItem *item) = 0

    This function is called to update the widget whenever a property
    is removed from the property browser, passing the pointer to the
    \a item of the property as parameters. The passed \a item is
    deleted just after this call is finished.

    If the the parent of \a item is 0, the removed \a item was a
    top level property in this editor.

    This function must be reimplemented in derived classes. Note that
    if the removed \a item's property has subproperties, this
    method will be called for those properties just before the current call is started.

    \sa removeProperty()
*/

/*!
    \fn virtual void QtAbstractPropertyBrowser::itemChanged(QtBrowserItem *item) = 0

    This function is called whenever a property's data changes,
    passing a pointer to the \a item of property as parameter.

    This function must be reimplemented in derived classes in order to
    update the property browser widget whenever a property's name,
    tool tip, status tip, "what's this" text, value text or value icon
    changes.

    Note that if the property browser contains several occurrences of
    the same property, this method will be called once for each
    occurrence (with a different item each time).
