[Qt-creator] custom complex editors using TextEditorFactory

hi all,

my goal is to provide more complex editors than just a  simple plaintext 
(TextEditorFactory) only. I need to have some widgets and then my own 
customized TextEditorWidget in the layout.

like eg.:

Label: [    line edit    ] (button)


But the problem is that all goodies from TextEditorWidget are handled in 
TextEditorFactory (completers, highlighters, formatters, ...)

Is there any way how to extend primary plaintext editor with some 
widgets withoyt reimplementation of plain text editor from scratch?
