/** \page viewModeInterfacePage View Mode Interface

\n

This Interface can be used to configure visible widgets and menus in the viewer. A given
view mode contains a list of toolbars, toolboxes and context menus which should
be visible if the mode is active. Therefore you can define a subset of the
full interface for special tasks.

\section ViewModeExample Example using custom view modes

%OpenFlipper comes along with a lot of plugins each offering a wide variety
of GUI elements such as toolboxes and toolbars. In order to constrain %OpenFlipper's
interface to a certain number of toolboxes and/or toolbar elements, the ViewModeInterface
offers means to filter these elements.

So, for example, if we only wanted the toolboxes of the Data Control and the
Selection plugin to be visible, we have to emit signal ViewModeInterface::defineViewModeToolboxes(QString, QStringList)
in order to hide out everything else:

\code
// In your plugin initialization, define the view modes:
void ExamplePlugin::pluginsInitialized() {

  // Generate the list of toolboxes to use:
  QStringList toolBoxes = QString("Data Control,Selection").split(",");

  // Define the view mode.
  emit defineViewModeToolboxes("My Custom View Mode", toolBoxes);

  //define the viewMode Toolbars
  QStringList toolBars;
  toolBars.push_back( "Selection" );

  emit defineViewModeToolbars("My Custom View Mode", toolBars);
}
\endcode

When the user selects "My Custom View Mode" out of the view modes menu, all
toolboxes except for Data Control and Selection will disappear.
This works analogously for toolbar elements via the signal ViewModeInterface::defineViewModeToolbars(QString, QStringList).

168 169 170 171 172
\section Defaults
The Main Toolbar and the Viewer Toolbar will always be included in the list of toolbars and will be the default when
you define a View Mode with only toolboxes and context menus.
If you do not define context menus for your View Mode, they will default to all.

173 174 175 176 177 178 179 180
\section Icons
Additionally, if we wanted the "My Custom View Mode" entry in the view modes menu
to appear with a fancy icon, we just have to call ViewModeInterface::defineViewModeIcon(QString, QString):

\code
  emit defineViewModeIcon("My Custom View Mode", "myIconFile.png");
\endcode

182 183 184 185 186 187 188 189 190 191 192
To use the ViewModeInterface:
<ul>
<li> include ViewModeInterface.hh in your plugins header file
<li> derive your plugin from the class ViewModeInterface
<li> add Q_INTERFACES(ViewModeInterface) to your plugin class
<li> And add the signals you want to use to your plugin class
</ul>
