DESCRIPTION
       The QHeader class provides a header row or column, e.g. for tables and listviews.

       This class provides a header, e.g. a vertical header to display row labels, or a
       horizontal header to display column labels. It is used by QTable and QListView for
       example.

       A header is composed of one or more sections, each of which can display a text label and
       an iconset. A sort indicator (an arrow) can also be displayed using setSortIndicator().

       Sections are added with addLabel() and removed with removeLabel(). The label and iconset
       are set in addLabel() and can be changed later with setLabel(). Use count() to retrieve
       the number of sections in the header.

       The orientation of the header is set with setOrientation(). If setStretchEnabled() is
       TRUE, the sections will expand to take up the full width (height for vertical headers) of
       the header. The user can resize the sections manually if setResizeEnabled() is TRUE. Call
       adjustHeaderSize() to have the sections resize to occupy the full width (or height).

       A section can be moved with moveSection(). If setMovingEnabled() is TRUE (the default)the
       user may drag a section from one position to another. If a section is moved, the index
       positions at which sections were added (with addLabel()), may not be the same after the
       move. You don't have to worry about this in practice because the QHeader API works in
       terms of section numbers, so it doesn't matter where a particular section has been moved
       to.

       If you want the current index position of a section call mapToIndex() giving it the
       section number. (This is the number returned by the addLabel() call which created the
       section.) If you want to get the section number of a section at a particular index
       position call mapToSection() giving it the index number.

       Here's an example to clarify mapToSection() and mapToIndex():

       <center>.nf

       </center>

       <center>.nf

       </center>

       In the example above, if we wanted to find out which section is at index position 3 we'd
       call mapToSection(3) and get a section number of 1 since section 1 was moved. Similarly,
       if we wanted to know which index position section 2 occupied we'd call mapToIndex(2) and
       get an index of 1.

       QHeader provides the clicked(), pressed() and released() signals. If the user changes the
       size of a section, the sizeChange() signal is emitted. If you want to have a sizeChange()
       signal emitted continuously whilst the user is resizing (rather than just after the
       resizing is finished), use setTracking(). If the user moves a section the indexChange()
       signal is emitted.

MEMBER FUNCTION DOCUMENTATION
QHeader::QHeader ( QWidget * parent = 0, const char * name = 0 )
       Constructs a horizontal header called name, with parent parent.

QHeader::QHeader ( int n, QWidget * parent = 0, const char * name = 0 )
       Constructs a horizontal header called name, with n sections and parent parent.

QHeader::~QHeader ()
       Destroys the header and all its sections.

int QHeader::addLabel ( const QString & s, int size = -1 )
       Adds a new section with label text s. Returns the index position where the section was
       added (at the right for horizontal headers, at the bottom for vertical headers). The
       section's width is set to size. If size < 0, an appropriate size for the text s is chosen.

int QHeader::addLabel ( const QIconSet & iconset, const QString & s, int size = -1 )
       This is an overloaded member function, provided for convenience. It behaves essentially
       like the above function.

       Adds a new section with iconset iconset and label text s. Returns the index position where
       the section was added (at the right for horizontal headers, at the bottom for vertical
       headers). The section's width is set to size, unless size is negative in which case the
       size is calculated taking account of the size of the text.

void QHeader::adjustHeaderSize ()
       Adjusts the size of the sections to fit the size of the header as completely as possible.
       Only sections for which isStretchEnabled() is TRUE will be resized.

int QHeader::cellAt ( int pos ) const
       This function is obsolete. It is provided to keep old source working. We strongly advise
       against using it in new code.

       Use sectionAt() instead.

       coordinates, or -1 if pos is outside the header sections.

int QHeader::cellPos ( int i ) const
       This function is obsolete. It is provided to keep old source working. We strongly advise
       against using it in new code.

       Use sectionPos() instead.

       Returns the position in pixels of the section that is displayed at the index i. The
       position is measured from the start of the header.

       This function is obsolete. It is provided to keep old source working. We strongly advise
       against using it in new code.

       Use sectionSize() instead.

       Returns the size in pixels of the section that is displayed at the index i.

       This signal is emitted when the user moves section section from index position fromIndex,
       to index position toIndex.

bool QHeader::isClickEnabled ( int section = -1 ) const
       Returns TRUE if section section is clickable; otherwise returns FALSE.

       If section is out of range (negative or larger than count() - 1): returns TRUE if all
       sections are clickable; otherwise returns FALSE.

       See also setClickEnabled().

bool QHeader::isMovingEnabled () const
       Returns TRUE if the header sections can be moved; otherwise returns FALSE. See the
       "moving" property for details.

bool QHeader::isResizeEnabled ( int section = -1 ) const
       Returns TRUE if section section is resizeable; otherwise returns FALSE.

       If section is -1 then this function applies to all sections, i.e. returns TRUE if all
       sections are resizeable; otherwise returns FALSE.

       See also setResizeEnabled().

bool QHeader::isStretchEnabled () const
       Returns TRUE if the header sections always take up the full width (or height) of the
       header; otherwise returns FALSE. See the "stretching" property for details.

bool QHeader::isStretchEnabled ( int section ) const
       This is an overloaded member function, provided for convenience. It behaves essentially
       like the above function.

       Returns TRUE if section section will resize to take up the full width (or height) of the
       header; otherwise returns FALSE. If at least one section has stretch enabled the sections
       will always take up the full width of the header.

       Returns the number of the section that is displayed at index position index.

       For more explanation see the mapTo example.

void QHeader::moveCell ( int fromIdx, int toIdx ) [virtual]
       This function is obsolete. It is provided to keep old source working. We strongly advise

       using painter p.

       Calls paintSectionLabel().

void QHeader::paintSectionLabel ( QPainter * p, int index, const QRect & fr ) [virtual protected]

       Paints the label of the section at position index, inside rectangle fr (which uses widget
       coordinates) using painter p.

       Called by paintSection()

void QHeader::pressed ( int section ) [signal]
       This signal is emitted when the user presses section section down.

       See also released().

void QHeader::released ( int section ) [signal]
       This signal is emitted when section section is released.

       See also pressed().

void QHeader::sectionClicked ( int index ) [signal]
       This function is obsolete. It is provided to keep old source working. We strongly advise
       against using it in new code.

       Use clicked() instead.

       This signal is emitted when a part of the header is clicked. index is the index at which
       the section is displayed.

       In a list view this signal would typically be connected to a slot that sorts the specified
       column (or row).

int QHeader::sectionPos ( int section ) const
       Returns the position (in pixels) at which the section starts.

       See also offset.

       against using it in new code.

       Use resizeSection() instead.

       Sets the size of the section section to s pixels.

       Warning: does not repaint or send out signals

void QHeader::setClickEnabled ( bool enable, int section = -1 ) [virtual]
       If enable is TRUE, any clicks on section section will result in clicked() signals being
       emitted; otherwise the section will ignore clicks.

       If section is -1 (the default) then the enable value is set for all existing sections and
       will be applied to any new sections that are added.

       See also moving and setResizeEnabled().

void QHeader::setLabel ( int section, const QString & s, int size = -1 ) [virtual]
       Sets the text of section section to s. The section's width is set to size if size >= 0;
       otherwise it is left unchanged. Any icon set that has been set for this section remains
       unchanged.

       If the section does not exist, nothing happens.

       Examples:

void QHeader::setLabel ( int section, const QIconSet & iconset, const QString & s, int size = -1
       ) [virtual]
       This is an overloaded member function, provided for convenience. It behaves essentially
       like the above function.

       Sets the icon for section section to iconset and the text to s. The section's width is set
       to size if size >= 0; otherwise it is left unchanged.

       If the section does not exist, nothing happens.

void QHeader::setMovingEnabled ( bool ) [virtual]
       Sets whether the header sections can be moved. See the "moving" property for details.

void QHeader::setOffset ( int pos ) [virtual slot]
       Sets the header's left-most (or top-most) visible pixel to pos. See the "offset" property
       for details.

void QHeader::setOrientation ( Orientation ) [virtual]
       Sets the header's orientation. See the "orientation" property for details.

void QHeader::setResizeEnabled ( bool enable, int section = -1 ) [virtual]
       If enable is TRUE the user may resize section section; otherwise the section may not be
       manually resized.

       If section is negative (the default) then the enable value is set for all existing
       sections and will be applied to any new sections that are added. Example:

	   // Allow resizing of all current and future sections
	   header->setResizeEnabled(TRUE);
	   // Disable resizing of section 3, (the fourth section added)
	   header->setResizeEnabled(FALSE, 3);

       If the user resizes a section, a sizeChange() signal is emitted.

       See also moving, setClickEnabled(), and tracking.

void QHeader::setSortIndicator ( int section, bool increasing = TRUE )
       Because the QHeader is often used in conjunction with table and list widgets, QHeader can
       indicate a sort order. This is achieved by displaying an arrow at the right edge of a
       section.

       If increasing is TRUE (the default) the arrow will point downwards; otherwise it will
       point upwards.

       Only one section can show a sort indicator at any one time. If you don't want any section
       to show a sort indicator pass a section number of -1.

void QHeader::setStretchEnabled ( bool b, int section ) [virtual]
       If b is TRUE, section section will be resized when the header is resized, so that the
       sections take up the full width (or height for vertical headers) of the header; otherwise
       section section will be set to be unstretchable and will not resize when the header is
       resized.

       If section is -1, and if b is TRUE, then all sections will be resized equally when the
       header is resized so that they take up the full width (or height for vertical headers) of
       the header; otherwise all the sections will be set to be unstretchable and will not resize
       when the header is resized.

       See also adjustHeaderSize().

void QHeader::setStretchEnabled ( bool b )
       Sets whether the header sections always take up the full width (or height) of the header
       to b. See the "stretching" property for details.

void QHeader::setTracking ( bool enable ) [virtual]
       Sets whether the sizeChange() signal is emitted continuously to enable. See the "tracking"
       property for details.

void QHeader::sizeChange ( int section, int oldSize, int newSize ) [signal]
       This signal is emitted when the user has changed the size of a section from oldSize to
       newSize. This signal is typically connected to a slot that repaints the table or list that
       contains the header.

bool QHeader::tracking () const
       Returns TRUE if the sizeChange() signal is emitted continuously; otherwise returns FALSE.
       See the "tracking" property for details.

   Property Documentation
int count
       This property holds the number of sections in the header.

       Get this property's value with count().

bool moving
       This property holds whether the header sections can be moved.

       If this property is TRUE (the default) the user can move sections. If the user moves a
       section the indexChange() signal is emitted.

       See also setClickEnabled() and setResizeEnabled().

       Set this property's value with setMovingEnabled() and get this property's value with
       isMovingEnabled().

int offset
       This property holds the header's left-most (or top-most) visible pixel.

       Setting this property will scroll the header so that offset becomes the left-most (or top-
       most for vertical headers) visible pixel.

       Set this property's value with setOffset() and get this property's value with offset().

Orientation orientation
       This property holds the header's orientation.

       The orientation is either Vertical or Horizontal (the default).

       Call setOrientation() before adding labels if you don't provide a size parameter otherwise
       the sizes will be incorrect.

       Set this property's value with setOrientation() and get this property's value with
       orientation().

bool stretching
       This property holds whether the header sections always take up the full width (or height)
       of the header.

       Set this property's value with setStretchEnabled() and get this property's value with
       isStretchEnabled().

bool tracking
       This property holds whether the sizeChange() signal is emitted continuously.

       If tracking is on, the sizeChange() signal is emitted continuously while the mouse is
       moved (i.e. when the header is resized), otherwise it is only emitted when the mouse
       button is released at the end of resizing.

       Tracking defaults to FALSE.

       Set this property's value with setTracking() and get this property's value with
       tracking().
