Editor Extension Interfaces

A KTextEditor implementation may implement an Editor extension interface, but it does not need to.

So as a KTextEditor user you have to cast the Editor to the desired interface and then check, whether the cast returns NULL or the valid interface.

Use qobject_cast to cast a Editor editor into the DesiredExtensionInterface, example:

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