Review request for KDE Base Apps.


Submitted with commit 5997228c0a129ea75dad1dd5264c681386793015 by Kai Uwe Broulik to branch frameworks.

Repository: kde-baseapps


This has the file manager open the parent folder(s), scroll to and highlight the file(s).


  CMakeLists.txt c10342f 
  kfind/kfindtreeview.cpp e546b6e 



Needs Review 128306 to fully work.

While the specs says "The behavior for more than one element is left up to the implementation.", at least Dolphin is smart enough to highlight multiple files within the same folder and even opens separate tabs for different parent folders, essentially re-creating the logic we previously had here, except that it'll result in just one file manager window now.
