Is there a "dark" default theme - to be used in Qt Apps (not Creator) ?

are there "dark default themes" for MacOS X and Windows 10 exiting?
I mean those who fit to the design guidelines of Microsoft and Apple.
Nope. Not for QWidget anyway.
There are some home made ones but they are not following any standard as such.
@mrjj thx for telling me

For QML there exist ready-made themes (called "styles") based on Microsoft and Google guidelines.
I'm not sure what is meant by "not Creator". I always build at the command-line and have never used Qt Creator, and this has not prevented me from using QWidget classes nor from using QML. I live a "Qt Creator free life" and I get by just fine :)
I see no mention on that page of Apple, but I do see the other two:
- Microsoft: "The Universal Style offers an appealing design based on the Microsoft Universal Design Guidelines, but requires more system resources than the Default style."
- Google: "The Material Style offers an appealing design based on the Google Material Design Guidelines, but requires more system resources than the Default style."
Both of those styles have a light and a dark variant.
This example project seems to let you view both Universal Style and Material Style dynamically applied to the demo app: https://doc.qt.io/qt-5.9/qtquickcontrols2-gallery-example.html
Because that Gallery Example app says to use Qt Creator in order to run the sample, maybe this is what is creating the (inaccurate impression) that Qt Creator is required.
It is possible to download the code for the example (https://github.com/qt/qtquickcontrols2/tree/dev/examples/quickcontrols2/gallery) and build it without Qt Creator.
Hi, i think poster means " not creator" as in not a theme for creator to make the IDE dark but to be used in the
app produced when compiling.
In any case, all is covered :)
Hi, @mrjj is right.
I meant not to get QT-Creator dark.
I am looking for "styles" to get C++ QT-Widget applications ready to follow MS and Apple "Drak mode design guidelines". Why reinventing the wheel ...
thx for your input. But I do C++ QT-Widget applications.
