/**
  * @short Base class for all your special view windows.
  *
  * Base class for all MDI view widgets. QextMDI stores additional information in this class
  * to handle the attach/detach mechanism and such things.
  *
  * All such windows 'lives' attached to a QextMdiChildFrm widget
  * managed by QextMdiChildArea, or detached (managed by the window manager.)
  * So remember that the @ref QextMdiChildView::parent pointer may change, and may be 0L, too.
  *
  * There are 2 possibilities for you to put your widgets under MDI control:
  *
  * Either you inherit all the views from QextMdiChildView:
  *   <PRE>
  *   class MyMdiWidget : public QextMdiChildView
  *   { .... };
  *   ...
  *   MyMdiWidget w;
  *   mainframe->addWindow(w, flags);
  *   </PRE>
  *
  * or you wrap them by a QextMdiChildView somehow like this:
  *
  * <PRE>
  * void DocViewMan::addQExtMDIFrame(QWidget* pNewView, bool bShow, const QPixmap& icon)
  * {
  *   // cover it by a QextMDI childview and add that MDI system
  *   QextMdiChildView* pMDICover = new QextMdiChildView( pNewView->caption());
  *   pMDICover->setIcon(icon);
  *   m_MDICoverList.append( pMDICover);
  *   QBoxLayout* pLayout = new QHBoxLayout( pMDICover, 0, -1, "layout");
  *   pNewView->reparent( pMDICover, QPoint(0,0));
  *   pLayout->addWidget( pNewView);
  *   pMDICover->setName( pNewView->name());
  *   // captions
  *   QString shortName = pNewView->caption();
  *   int length = shortName.length();
  *   shortName = shortName.right(length - (shortName.findRev('/') +1));
  *   pMDICover->setTabCaption( shortName);
  *   pMDICover->setCaption(pNewView->caption());
  *
  *   // fake a viewActivated to update the currentEditView/currentBrowserView pointers _before_ adding to MDI control
  *   slot_viewActivated( pMDICover);
  *
  *   // take it under MDI mainframe control (note: this triggers also a setFocus())
  *   int flags;
  *   if (bShow) {
  *     flags = QextMdi::StandardAdd;
  *   }
  *   else {
  *     flags = QextMdi::Hide;
  *   }
  *   // set the accelerators for Toplevel MDI mode (each toplevel window needs its own accels
  *   connect( m_pParent, SIGNAL(childViewIsDetachedNow(QWidget*)), this, SLOT(initKeyAccel(QWidget*)) );
  *
  *   m_pParent->addWindow( pMDICover, flags);
  *   // correct the default settings of QextMDI ('cause we haven't a tab order for subwidget focuses)
  *   pMDICover->setFirstFocusableChildWidget(0L);
  *   pMDICover->setLastFocusableChildWidget(0L);
  * }
  * </PRE>
