Detailed Description

Annotation interface for the View.


The AnnotationViewInterface allows to do two things:

  • (1) show/hide the annotation border along with the possibility to add actions into its context menu.
  • (2) set a separate AnnotationModel for the View: Note that this interface inherits the AnnotationInterface.

For a more detailed explanation about whether you want an AnnotationModel in the Document or the View, read the detailed documentation about the AnnotationInterface.

Accessing the AnnotationViewInterface

The AnnotationViewInterface is an extension interface for a View, i.e. the View inherits the interface provided that the used KTextEditor library implements the interface. Use qobject_cast to access the interface:

// view is of type KTextEditor::View*
auto iface = qobject_cast<KTextEditor::AnnotationViewInterface*>(view);
if (iface) {
// the implementation supports the interface
// do stuff
} else {
// the implementation does not support the interface

virtual void KTextEditor::AnnotationViewInterface::annotationActivated ( KTextEditor::View view,
int  line 
pure virtual

This signal is emitted when an entry on the annotation border was activated, for example by clicking or double-clicking it.

This follows the KDE wide setting for activation via click or double-clcik

linethe document line that the activated position belongs to
virtual void KTextEditor::AnnotationViewInterface::annotationBorderVisibilityChanged ( KTextEditor::View view,
bool  visible 
pure virtual

This signal is emitted when the annotation border is shown or hidden.

viewthe view to which the border belongs to

virtual void KTextEditor::AnnotationViewInterface::annotationContextMenuAboutToShow ( KTextEditor::View view,
QMenu menu,
int  line 
pure virtual

This signal is emitted before a context menu is shown on the annotation border for the given line and view.

Kate Part implementation detail: In Kate Part, the menu has an entry to hide the annotation border.

virtual bool KTextEditor::AnnotationViewInterface::isAnnotationBorderVisible ( ) const
pure virtual

Checks whether the View's annotation border is visible.

virtual void KTextEditor::AnnotationViewInterface::setAnnotationBorderVisible ( bool  visible)
pure virtual
