    \class QWidgetAction
    \since 4.2
    \brief The QWidgetAction class extends QAction by an interface
    for inserting custom widgets into action based containers, such
    as toolbars.

    Most actions in application are represented as items in menus or
    buttons in toolbars. However sometimes more complex widgets are
    necessary. For example a zoom action in a word processor may be
    realized using a QComboBox in a QToolBar, presenting a range
    of different zoom levels. QToolBar provides QToolBar::insertWidget()
    as convenience function for inserting a single widget.
    However if you want to implement an action that uses custom
    widgets for visualization in multiple containers then you have to
    subclass QWidgetAction.

    If a QWidgetAction is added for example to a QToolBar then
    QWidgetAction::createWidget() is called. Reimplementations of that
    function should create a new custom widget with the specified parent.

    If the action is removed from a container widget then QWidgetAction::deleteWidget()
    is called with the previously created custom widget as argument. The default implementation
    hides the widget and deletes it using QObject::deleteLater().

    If you have only one single custom widget then you can set it as default
    widget using setDefaultWidget(). That widget will then be used if the
    action is added to a QToolBar, or in general to an action container that
    supports QWidgetAction. If a QWidgetAction with only a default widget is
    added to two toolbars at the same time then the default widget is shown
    only in the first toolbar the action was added to. QWidgetAction takes
    over ownership of the default widget.

    Note that it is up to the widget to activate the action, for example by
    reimplementing mouse event handlers and calling QAction::trigger().

    \bold {Mac OS X}: If you add widgets to a menu in the application's menu
    bar on Mac OS X, the widget will be added and function but there are some
    limitations:
    \list 1
        \o The widget is reparented away from the QMenu to the native menu
        view. If you show the menu some other place (e.g. as a popup menu), the
        widget will not be there.
        \o Focus/Keyboard handling of the widget is not possible
        \o Mouse tracking on the widget currently does not work
        \o Connecting the triggered() signal to a slot that opens a modal
        dialog will cause a crash in Mac OS X 10.4 (known bug acknowledged by
        Apple), a workaround is to use a QueuedConnection instead of a
        DirectConnection.
