Public Functions

QActionEvent(int type, QAction *action, QAction *before = nullptr)
QAction * action() const
QAction * before() const

Detailed Description

Actions can be added to controls, for example by using QWidget::addAction(). This generates an ActionAdded event, which you can handle to provide custom behavior. For example, QToolBar reimplements QWidget::actionEvent() to create QToolButtons for the actions.
