Description

The QSqlEditorFactory class is used to create the editors used by QDataTable and QSqlForm.

QSqlEditorFactory is used by QDataTable and QSqlForm 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 QSqlEditorFactory and reimplement the createEditor() function.

Member Function Documentation

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

Constructs a SQL editor factory with parent parent, called name.

QSqlEditorFactory::~QSqlEditorFactory ()

Destroys the object and frees any allocated resources.

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

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.

Reimplemented from QEditorFactory.

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

This is an overloaded member function, provided for convenience. It behaves essentially like the above function.

Creates and returns the appropriate editor for the QSqlField field.

QSqlEditorFactory * QSqlEditorFactory::defaultFactory () [static]

Returns an instance of a default editor factory.

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

Replaces the default editor factory with factory. All QDataTable and QSqlForm instantiations will use this new factory for creating field editors. QSqlEditorFactory takes ownership of &#92;a factory, and destroys it when it is no longer needed.
