External modification extension interface for the Document.
The class ModificationInterface provides methods to handle modifications of all opened files caused by external programs. Whenever the modified-on-disk state changes the signal modifiedOnDisk() is emitted along with a ModifiedOnDiskReason. Set the state by calling setModifiedOnDisk(). Whether the Editor should show warning dialogs to inform the user about external modified files can be controlled with setModifiedOnDiskWarning(). The slot modifiedOnDisk() is called to ask the user what to do whenever a file was modified.
Accessing the ModificationInterface
The ModificationInterface is supposed to be an extension interface for a Document, i.e. the Document inherits the interface provided that the used KTextEditor library implements the interface. Use qobject_cast to access the interface:
