[Solved] Creating very customized windows

  • Hello,

    I am very new to gui designing, so very noobish question here.

    I would like to confirm that I can change the widnow caption as I wish, the orders of the buttons to close, minimize or resize my window (on the border) as well as the icons to represent them.

    I really want to break the native style and put my style on the app I am about to create.
    Ideally, it will be portable to linux, windows as well.

    Will qt let me do that?

    Hi and welcome

    You can NOT alter the decorations as its controlled by the windows manager and NOT part of Qt.

    You can create a Captionless window and then create your own buttons etc and the logic to
    max/mini etc and dragging.

  • Ok thanks mrjj!

    Np. You can style the whole application however. All controls etc
    can be controlled with style sheet.
    Just not Caption :)
