@ManiRon how to add the resource image for the background image of the mainwindow
For your first post/question: read through https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/resources.html. That explains what your options are wrt supplying the image in a separate file (and where), or having Qt compile the image directly into the
.exeso you don't have to supply an external file at all. Pick whichever appropriate approach you desire.
I often convert the image data to a large const array and build the image from the array. Of course it's extremely static at that point...and the size of the image itself and format need to be considered.
