QAbstractItemView - Fix docs to match behavior (SelectionMode)
We can deselect the item in single selection mode. It was introduced in 28a21d98ef8d880a6dd86ee19dd803424bb5eae1 The motivation was QTBUG-8836 - and furthermore it was in many situations already possible to deselect the item by clicking in the viewport. A restore of selection by reacting on the signal QItemSelectionModel::selectionChanged is easily possible If the behavior was changed to follow the documentation, such a similar simply work-around to allow deselect would not be possible. Task-number: QTBUG-49217 Change-Id: I5466337dc547414d3e0c045ab35d618dba56c508 Reviewed-by: David Faure <>
