Porting to Qt4:

Main Window

Highlights:

Move context-dependent actions to KexiWindow's area itself

(MOSTLY DONE) Move context-dependent actions to KexiWindow's area itself. Examples: toggle buttons for "data/design/text" view modes, "save" button. Additional reason for such move is that any KexiWindow is detachable, so actions related to it have to be kept within floating window.

  • Local actions are not shared, these are KAction-derived objects -- this possible to create QWidgetActions as well.
  • KexiPart::initViewActions(QList<KAction*>&) initializes view-level actions for a given view.

KexiWindows have to be detacheable (TODO) This makes it easier to display large windows for multihead displays.

Ideas:

Simple Printouts

  • usage KoPageLayoutDia has been disabled because it is not yet available in kofficeui (april 2007); TODO: reenable
    • consider moving to non-modal property pane GUI for these settings

Startup

  • (DONE) KPageDialog is used instead of KDialogBase
  • (DONE) KexiStartupFileWidget (inheriting KFileWidget) is used instead of KexiStartupFileDialog(external) (inheriting KFileDialog)
