    \class QDesignerFormWindowInterface

    \brief The QDesignerFormWindowInterface class allows you to query
    and manipulate form windows appearing in Qt Designer's workspace.

    \inmodule QtDesigner

    QDesignerFormWindowInterface provides information about
    the associated form window as well as allowing its properties to be
    altered. The interface is not intended to be instantiated
    directly, but to provide access to \QD's current form windows
    controlled by \QD's \l {QDesignerFormWindowManagerInterface}{form
    window manager}.

    If you are looking for the form window containing a specific
    widget, you can use the static
    QDesignerFormWindowInterface::findFormWindow() function:

    \code
    QDesignerFormWindowInterface *formWindow;
    formWindow = QDesignerFormWindowInterface::findFormWindow(myWidget);
    \endcode

    But in addition, you can access any of the current form windows
    through \QD's form window manager: Use the
    QDesignerFormEditorInterface::formWindowManager() function to
    retrieve an interface to the manager. Once you have this
    interface, you have access to all of \QD's current form windows
    through the QDesignerFormWindowManagerInterface::formWindow()
    function. For example:

    \code
    QList<QDesignerFormWindowInterface *> forms;
    QDesignerFormWindowInterface *formWindow;

    QDesignerFormWindowManagerInterface *manager = formEditor->formWindowManager();

    for (int i = 0; i < manager->formWindowCount(); i++) {
        formWindow = manager->formWindow(i);
        forms.append(formWindow);
    }
    \endcode

    The pointer to \QD's current QDesignerFormEditorInterface object
    (\c formEditor in the example above) is provided by the
    QDesignerCustomWidgetInterface::initialize() function's
    parameter. When implementing a custom widget plugin, you must
    subclass the QDesignerCustomWidgetInterface class to expose your
    plugin to \QD.

    Once you have the form window, you can query its properties. For
    example, a plain custom widget plugin is managed by \QD only at
    its top level, i.e. none of its child widgets can be resized in
    \QD's workspace. But QDesignerFormWindowInterface provides you
    with functions that enables you to control whether a widget should
    be managed by \QD, or not:

    \code
        if (formWindow->isManaged(myWidget))
            formWindow->manageWidget(myWidget->childWidget);
    \endcode

    The complete list of functions concerning widget management is:
    isManaged(), manageWidget() and unmanageWidget(). There is also
    several associated signals: widgetManaged(), widgetRemoved(),
    aboutToUnmanageWidget() and widgetUnmanaged().

    In addition to controlling the management of widgets, you can
    control the current selection in the form window using the
    selectWidget(), clearSelection() and emitSelectionChanged()
    functions, and the selectionChanged() signal.

    You can also retrieve information about where the form is stored
    using absoluteDir(), its include files using includeHints(), and
    its layout and pixmap functions using layoutDefault(),
    layoutFunction() and pixmapFunction(). You can find out whether
    the form window has been modified (but not saved) or not, using
    the isDirty() function. You can retrieve its author(), its
    contents(), its fileName(), associated comment() and
    exportMacro(), its mainContainer(), its features(), its grid() and
    its resourceFiles().

    The interface provides you with functions and slots allowing you
    to alter most of this information as well. The exception is the
    directory storing the form window. Finally, there is several
    signals associated with changes to the information mentioned above
    and to the form window in general.
