/**
 *  A graphical editor for regular expressions.
 * 
 * @author Jesper K. Pedersen blackie@kde.org
 *
 * The actual editor is located in kdeutils, with an interface in
 * kdelibs. This means that it is a bit more complicated to create an
 * instance of the editor, but only a little bit more complicated.
 *
 * To check if kregexpeditor in kdeutils is installed and available use this line:
 * 
 * \code
 * bool installed=!KTrader::self()->query("KRegExpEditor/KRegExpEditor").isEmpty();
 * \endcode
 *
 * The following is a template for what you need to do to create an instance of the
 * regular expression dialog:
 *
 * \code
 * QDialog *editorDialog = KParts::ComponentFactory::createInstanceFromQuery<QDialog>( "KRegExpEditor/KRegExpEditor" );
 * if ( editorDialog ) {
 *   // kdeutils was installed, so the dialog was found fetch the editor interface
 *   KRegExpEditorInterface *editor = static_cast<KRegExpEditorInterface *>( editorDialog->qt_cast( "KRegExpEditorInterface" ) );
 *   Q_ASSERT( editor ); // This should not fail!
 *   
 *   // now use the editor.
 *   editor->setRegExp("^kde$");
 *
 *   // Finally exec the dialog
 *   editorDialog->exec();
 * }
 * else {
 *   // Don't offer the dialog.
 * }
 * \endcode
 *
 * Note: signals and slots must be connected to the editorDialog object, not to the editor object:
 * \code
 * connect( editorDialog, SIGNAL( canUndo( bool ) ), undoBut, SLOT( setEnabled( bool ) ) );
 * \endcode
 *
 * If you want to create an instance of the editor widget, i.e. not the
 * dialog, then you must do it in the following way:
 *
 * \code
 * QWidget *editorWidget =
 * KParts::ComponentFactory::createInstanceFromQuery<QWidget>( 
 *     "KRegExpEditor/KRegExpEditor", QString::null, parent );
 * if ( editorWidget ) {
 *   // kdeutils was installed, so the widget was found fetch the editor interface
 *   KRegExpEditorInterface *editor = static_cast<KRegExpEditorInterface *>( editorWidget->qt_cast( "KRegExpEditorInterface" ) );
 *   Q_ASSERT( editor ); // This should not fail!
 *   
 *   // now use the editor.
 *   editor->setRegExp("^kde$");

 *   // Finally insert the widget into the layout of its parent
 *   layout->addWidget( editorWidget );
 * }
 * else {
 *   // Don't offer the editor widget.
 * }
 * \endcode
 *
