View CSS

  • There are tons of posts where users are specifying how to tweak the CSS of existing widgets, such as the items of a QComboBox. What I am wondering is how they they know the various CSS classes and such of existing items? Read the documentation? Browse to source? or is there some debugger view I am missing like where is with WebKit/Chrome/Firefox/etc where you can visualize the active styles of a widget?

    Do you mean Qt's style sheet ?

  • @SGaist Yes, that is the documentation to which I was referring. That is what I have been using. I just wanted to make sure there was not an equivalent to Chrome Inspector in Qt Creator that I was missing. I have spent hours trying to figure out how to keep an icon from touching the edge of a QComboBox to no avail. When dealing with web technologies, I'd choose the Inspector from the context menu, and then manipulate the stylesheet on-the-fly to see the results in realtime. I understand of no such thing exists within Qt, I just did not want to miss it if it did :)

    AFAIK, no, you didn't miss anything. Maybe KDAB's GammaRay has an option for that
