Qt Quick Controls 2

Qt Quick Controls 2 Styles

The Qt Quick Controls 2 module delivers the next generation user interface controls based on Qt Quick. In comparison to the desktop-oriented Qt Quick Controls 1, Qt Quick Controls 2 are an order of magnitude simpler, lighter and faster, and are primarily targeted towards embedded and mobile platforms.

Qt Quick Controls 2 are based on a flexible template system that enables rapid development of entire custom styles and user experiences. Qt Quick Controls 2 comes with a selection of built-in styles:

  • Default style - a simple and minimal all-round style that offers the maximum performance
  • Fusion style - a platform-agnostic style that offers a desktop-oriented look and feel
  • Imagine style - a designer-friendly style based on image assets
  • Material style - a style based on the Google Material Design Guidelines
  • Universal style - a style based on the Microsoft Universal Design Guidelines
