    It's explained in the document you linked: because Qt uses code written by other for certain things.

    What do you mean by "how much am i free" ?

    What non-unified license did you find in the Qt Widget module ?

    for example :
    i want to develop a game in Qt with using different widgets.
    it is possible that i published it closed source!?
    or we s when using a widget with GPL licenese,we should publish it opensource?
    thanks for reply

    Qt's sources are covered by the same set of license, GPL, LGPL and Commercial. There's no one widget with a license and another with another license.

    You have to choose which license you want to use with your project and then abide by its rules. The commercial license being only available once you bought it.
