[slot] void QDialog::showExtension(bool showIt)

This function is obsolete.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

If showIt is true, the dialog's extension is shown; otherwise the extension is hidden.

Instead of using this functionality, we recommend that you simply call show() or hide() on the part of the dialog that you want to use as an extension. See the Extension Example for details.

See also show(), setExtension(), and setOrientation().

QWidget *QDialog::extension() const

void QDialog::setExtension(QWidget *extension)

This function is obsolete.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

Sets the widget, extension, to be the dialog's extension, deleting any previous extension. The dialog takes ownership of the extension. Note that if nullptr is passed, any existing extension will be deleted. This function must only be called while the dialog is hidden.
