An object of this class, obtained from QGuiApplication, provides access to certain global
user interface parameters of the current platform.
- Access is read only; typically the platform itself provides the user a way to tune these

- Access to these parameters are useful when implementing custom user interface components, in that
- they allow the components to exhibit the same behaviour and feel as other components.
