SASVIEW-966: Organise parameter table by model component
Torin Cooper-Bennun, 24 July 2018 09:46

In order to reduce confusion of where parameters are coming from in P(Q)S(Q), sum/multi, or more complicated mixture models, the model parameter table could include sub-headings to separate the parameters by model component.

I've mocked it up on the ESS_GUI_beta_approx branch in the simple case of P(Q)S(Q); https://github.com/SasView/sasview/commit/a699172f8d2bb2fddba1f168550bbf2d5893a6ca

This currently uses non-checkable, non-selectable, bold-face rows as headings. I'm a bit concerned that using top-level rows as headings may break some other manipulation of the item model, though.

This looks good!

As for potential fallout - (hopefully) all operations on the naked model are done through special methods in GuiUtilities?, so location of potential fixes is well defined. Also, as a general rule I tend to iterate over model items testing if the item is checkable - only then I look for its children etc.

The "Polydispersity" row acts almost exactly like your multi-column description rows.

The parameters 'scale' and 'background' are not part of any single model component. Is it clear to the user what is meant by them if they stand heading-less at the top of the table?
