Edit/Metadata digiKam menu entry is populated by a kipi plugin :


The menu action instance is created directly in the plugin here :


digiKam is a Kipi host, which use libkipi interafce to communicate
with the plugin.
If user change items selection from icon view, plugin will receive this signal :


Which will be propagated to the action directly...

Rerouting the signal to a dedicated slot can be a solution to analyse
items selection if files are read-only or not, before to enable the
action accordingly.

Q: what we must do in case of multiple items selection where some are
RO and other RW ?

About KIPI interface API, look here :
