Editors are widgets, they are painted the normal way for a QWidget (paintEvent).

If this is about a pushbutton, you don't need an editor -at all-.
Just override editorEvent in the delegate, and handle the clicks
(press -> set boolean, release inside the button and the boolean is set -> 
call code that must be called when clicking the button)
