Member Function Documentation

QMenu * KMoreToolsMenuFactory::createMenuFromGroupingNames ( const QStringList groupingNames,
const QUrl url = QUrl() 

For each grouping name menu items will be created an appended to a lazy menu which is returned.

The menu is lazy in a sense that the items are not added until the menu is about to be shown. NOTE: This means if the menu is not shown (as would be by e.g. calling exec()) then the menu stays empty.

For details on available grouping names see KMoreToolsPresets::registerServicesByGroupingNames.

For each grouping name there might be special handlings that take the optional given url into account if needed. By default the url is empty.

Furthermore, some selected menu items will be put into the "More" menu section by default.

The "more:" grouping name

There is a special grouping name "more:" (note the colon). If this name is given in the list, all further groupings are put into the More section by default.

NOTE that this method overrides a previously created QMenu* instance of the same KMoreToolsMenuFactory instance. The reason is that the internal KMoreTools pointer is reused. (todo: solve this or rename the class?)

the created QMenu which includes a Main and (maybe) a More section and an item that starts configure dialog where the user can configure the menu (see KMoreTools).

void KMoreToolsMenuFactory::fillMenuFromGroupingNames ( QMenu menu,
const QStringList groupingNames,
const QUrl url = QUrl() 

See createMenuFromGroupingNames except that the menu is not created but you have to provide one yourself.

This is useful to create lazy menus by connecting QMenu::aboutToShow.

WARN 1: KMoreToolsMenuFactory must live as long as you would like to use the menu.

WARN 2: You must NOT reuse an existing KMoreToolsMenuFactory instance to create a different menu.

void KMoreToolsMenuFactory::setParentWidget ( QWidget widget)
