Has anybody experience in building a custom style in Qt? What I have in my mind is a complete new style that affects all kind of widgets. I have seen some examples in the web for a custom combo box. But I have no idea how much time and code it takes to build a "complete" new custom style … maybe someone can give me a hint.
We think of using Qt 4.3 (or even newer) …
Check out the Stylesheets facility in Qt 4. While it's still a hassle, it's way easier than doing a full-on custom style. You can just adjust one visual facet at a time and try it out.
It pays attention to inheritance. So if you style the font in QWidget, then every visual widget will also use that font. And so on.
