i'm very much in favour of having this functionality in libs somewhere, as
otherwise it is going to be a nightmare to maintain this particular widget as
it appears in so many places and is visually prominent. it is getting copied
by app developers (which is a good thing =), so changes to it would require a
lot of work and result in inconsistencies... so, that bit of support aside:
do we need a full class for it? would it be enough to simply provide a way to
style a frame properly? that's all this is essentially doing
if we do go for a full on widget, perhaps it would make sense to add the
ability to set a header label, add an icon, etc...
that would move stuff like
etc into this new widget would increase the consistency and allow us to, if
desired, change the way things look down the road.
all the apps seem to be using this in the same general way (bold title, a bit
of possible description text in regular font, an icon to the side..)
there could still be the setWidget(QWidget* widget) method for those who wish
to be crazy ;) but perhaps we should offer a truly standardized way of
creating this display element. thoughts?
