    \class QButtonGroup qbuttongroup.h
    \brief The QButtonGroup class provides a container to organize groups of
    button widgets.

    \ingroup organizers
    \ingroup geomanagement
    \ingroup appearance
    \mainclass

    QButtonGroup provides an abstract container into which button widgets can
    be placed. It does not provide a visual representation of this container
    (see QGroupBox for a container widget), but instead manages the states of
    each of the buttons in the group.

    An \l exclusive button group switches off all checkable (toggle)
    buttons except the one that was clicked. By default, a button
    group is exclusive. The buttons in a button group are usually
    checkable QPushButton's, \l{QCheckBox}es (normally for
    non-exclusive button groups), or \l{QRadioButton}s. If you create
    an exclusive button group, you should ensure that one of the
    buttons in the group is initially checked; otherwise, the group
    will initially be in a state where no buttons are checked.

    A button is added to the group with addButton(). It can be removed
    from the group with removeButton(). If the group is exclusive, the
    currently checked button is available as checkedButton(). If a
    button is clicked the buttonClicked() signal is emitted. For a
    checkable button in an exclusive group this means that the button
    was checked. The list of buttons in the group is returned by
    buttons().

    In addition, QButtonGroup can map between integers and
    buttons. You can assign an integer id to a button with setId(),
    and retrieve it with id(). The id of the currently checked button
    is available with checkedId(), and there is an overloaded signal
    buttonClicked() which emits the id of the button. The purpose of
    the mapping mechanism is to simplify the representation of enum
    values in a user interface.

/*!
    \property QButtonGroup::exclusive
    \brief whether the button group is exclusive

    If this property is true then only one button in the group can be checked
    at any given time. The user can click on any button to check it, and that
    button will replace the existing one as the checked button in the group.

    In an exclusive group, the user cannot uncheck the currently checked button
    by clicking on it; instead, another button in the group must be clicked
    to set the new checked button for that group.

    By default, this property is true.

    called.
