If the property references an enum declared with Q_ENUMS, you should
reference its constants by name, i.e., not their numeric value.
+ \note Use the qproperty syntax with care, as it modifies the
+ widget that is being painted. Also, the qproperty syntax is evaluated only
+ once, which is when the widget is polished by the style. This means that any
+ attempt to use them in pseudo-states such as QPushButton:hover, will not work.
