I am not sure what you mean. Are you talking about how in a table view whe=
you click on a header it selects the row/column? QTableView does do this.

shouldn't need the extra weight of a QSortFilterProxyModel. And if not the=

This will be a little less complicated in 4.2.

It would be much preferred if the search line widget could work with any mo=
and any view (Many apps will use a table view). I can not think of a reaso=
why our generic search widget should be tied to one view or model.

Here are a few comments on the header.
isExecuteArea(), isExecuteArea(), and depthToPixels() - something that is i=
the style. visualRect() should already return the correct results (and if=
not it is a bug).=20
setFullWidth() sounds like it does the same thing as qheaderview already do=
setShadeSortColumn() should be in a delegate that anyone can use
menuShortCutPressed <- When would this be used?
I see there are 5 apps in kde that use this function according to lxr. Qt's=
doesn't have this, perhaps we should request it as a wish item? It is a ni=
convenience feature which you can easily do manually.=20
emitExecute should take a QModelIndex
activateAutomaticSelection() & friends. This doesn't belong in kdelibs. T=
is an application specific functionality not a general feature. The file=20
manager can create a subclass (if even needed) for this feature (without al=
the extra functions too).
virtual_hook() - Need to double check with the core archives, but I don't=20
think we are using these in QObject subclasses in KDE4.
=46un, once you remove the above there isn't much work for you to do =20
There might be value in making inline KDE_DEPRECATED functions that call th=
qt equivalent, but sense most apps have to be re-worked anyway maybe just=20
documenting it will be good enough?
