Just thought I would make everyone aware of a quick time saver for
restoring dialog/widget positions added in master. This is mainly to
remove the pain of having to do restoreGeometry()/saveGeometry() in every
widget and remembering the naming we use for settings keys. It's also
about fixing consistency inside the application so every dialog remembers
their state correctly.
The new API is:
QgsGui::instance()->enableAutoGeometryRestore( this );
This should go just after setupUi( this );
Here is an example:
You can then remove any calls to restoreGeometry() and saveGeometry() in
your widget. Diff of an example:
Unless there is a good reason not, all new widgets should be using this
code when you write them. I would like to ask if people can start to port
existing widgets if they are already editing that code. I will be doing a
bulk update when I can but I suspect I will miss some and group effort is
better in case I run out of time.
