    \class QEvent
    \brief The QEvent class is the base class of all
    event classes. Event objects contain event parameters.

    \ingroup events
    \ingroup environment

    Qt's main event loop (QCoreApplication::exec()) fetches native
    window system events from the event queue, translates them into
    QEvents, and sends the translated events to \l{QObject}s.

    In general, events come from the underlying window system
    (spontaneous() returns true), but it is also possible to manually
    send events using QCoreApplication::sendEvent() and
    QCoreApplication::postEvent() (spontaneous() returns false).

    QObjects receive events by having their QObject::event() function
    called. The function can be reimplemented in subclasses to
    customize event handling and add additional event types;
    QWidget::event() is a notable example. By default, events are
    dispatched to event handlers like QObject::timerEvent() and
    QWidget::mouseMoveEvent(). QObject::installEventFilter() allows an
    object to intercept events destined for another object.

    The basic QEvent contains only an event type parameter and an
    "accept" flag.  The accept flag set with accept(), and cleared
    with ignore(). It is set by default, but don't rely on this as
    subclasses may choose to clear it in their constructor.

    Subclasses of QEvent contain additional parameters that describe
    the particular event.

    \enum QEvent::Type

    This enum type defines the valid event types in Qt. The event

    : d(0), t(type), posted(false), spont(false), m_accept(true)

    Destroys the event. If it was \link
    QCoreApplication::postEvent() posted \endlink,
    it will be removed from the list of events to be posted.

00229 QEvent::~QEvent()
    if (posted && QCoreApplication::instance())

    \property  QEvent::accepted
    the accept flag of the event object

    Setting the accept parameter indicates that the event receiver
    wants the event. Unwanted events might be propagated to the parent
    widget. By default, isAccepted() is set to true, but don't rely on
    this as subclasses may choose to clear it in their constructor.

    For convenience, the accept flag can also be set with accept(),
    and cleared with ignore().

    \fn void QEvent::accept()

    Sets the accept flag of the event object, the equivalent of
    callign setAccepted(true).

    Setting the accept parameter indicates that the event receiver
    wants the event. Unwanted events might be propagated to the parent

    \sa ignore()

    \fn void QEvent::ignore()

    Clears the accept flag parameter of the event object, the
    equivalent of calling setAccepted(false).

    Clearing the accept parameter indicates that the event receiver
    does not want the event. Unwanted events might be propgated to the
    parent widget.

    \sa accept()

    \fn QEvent::Type QEvent::type() const

    Returns the event type.

    \fn bool QEvent::spontaneous() const

    Returns true if the event originated outside the application (a
    system event); otherwise returns false.

    The return value of this function is not defined for paint events.

    \class QTimerEvent qcoreevent.h
    \brief The QTimerEvent class contains parameters that describe a
    timer event.

    \ingroup events

    Timer events are sent at regular intervals to objects that have
    started one or more timers. Each timer has a unique identifier. A
    timer is started with QObject::startTimer().

    The QTimer class provides a high-level programming interface that
    uses signals instead of events. It also provides single-shot timers.

    The event handler QObject::timerEvent() receives timer events.

    \sa QTimer, QObject::timerEvent(), QObject::startTimer(),

    Constructs a timer event object with the timer identifier set to
    \a timerId.
00317 QTimerEvent::QTimerEvent(int timerId)
    : QEvent(Timer), id(timerId)

/*! \internal
00323 QTimerEvent::~QTimerEvent()

    \fn int QTimerEvent::timerId() const

    Returns the unique timer identifier, which is the same identifier
    as returned from QObject::startTimer().

    \class QChildEvent
    \brief The QChildEvent class contains event parameters for child object

    \ingroup events

    Child events are sent immediately to objects when children are
    added or removed.

    In both cases you can only rely on the child being a QObject (or,
    if QObject::isWidgetType() returns true, a QWidget). This is
    because in the QEvent::ChildAdded case the child is not yet fully
    constructed; in the QEvent::ChildRemoved case it might have
    already been destructed.

    The handler for these events is QObject::childEvent().

    Constructs a child event object of a particular \a type for the
    \a child.

    \a type can be QEvent::ChildAdded, QEvent::ChildRemoved,
    QEvent::ChildPolished, or QEvent::ChildRemoved.

    \sa child()
00362 QChildEvent::QChildEvent(Type type, QObject *child)
    : QEvent(type), c(child)

/*! \internal
00368 QChildEvent::~QChildEvent()

    \fn QObject *QChildEvent::child() const

    Returns the child object that was added or removed.

    \fn bool QChildEvent::added() const

    Returns true if type() is QEvent::ChildAdded; otherwise returns

    \fn bool QChildEvent::removed() const

    Returns true if type() is QEvent::ChildRemoved; otherwise returns

    \fn bool QChildEvent::polished() const

    Returns true if type() is QEvent::ChildPolished; otherwise returns

    \class QCustomEvent
    \brief The QCustomEvent class provides support for custom events.


    QCustomEvent has a \c{void *} that can be used to store custom

    In Qt 3, QObject::customEvent() took a QCustomEvent pointer. We
    found out that this approach was unsatisfactory, because
    there was often no safe way of deleting the data held in the
    \c{void *}.

    In Qt 4, QObject::customEvent() takes a plain QEvent pointer.
    You can add custom data by subclassing.

    \sa QObject::customEvent(), QCoreApplication::notify()

    \fn QCustomEvent::QCustomEvent(int type, void *data)

    Constructs a custom event object with the event \a type and a
    pointer to \a data. The value of \a type must be at least as
    large as QEvent::User. By default, the data pointer is set to 0.
#ifdef QT3_SUPPORT
QCustomEvent::QCustomEvent(int type, void *data)
    : QEvent(static_cast<Type>(type))
    d = reinterpret_cast<QEventPrivate *>(data);

/*! \internal
    \fn void QCustomEvent::setData(void *data)


    Sets the generic data pointer to \a data.

    \sa data()

    \fn void *QCustomEvent::data() const


    Returns a pointer to the generic event data.

    \sa setData()

    \fn bool QChildEvent::inserted() const


    A child has been inserted if the event's type() is ChildInserted.

    \class QDynamicPropertyChangeEvent
    \since 4.2
    \brief The QDynamicPropertyChangeEvent class contains event parameters for dynamic
    property change events.

    \ingroup events

    Dynamic property change events are sent to objects when properties are
    dynamically added, changed or removed using QObject::setProperty().

    Constructs a dynamic property change event object with the property name set to
    \a name.
00483 QDynamicPropertyChangeEvent::QDynamicPropertyChangeEvent(const QByteArray &name)
    : QEvent(QEvent::DynamicPropertyChange), n(name)

00491 QDynamicPropertyChangeEvent::~QDynamicPropertyChangeEvent()

    \fn QByteArray QDynamicPropertyChangeEvent::propertyName() const

    Returns the name of the dynamic property that was added, changed or

    \sa QObject::setProperty(), QObject::dynamicPropertyNames()
