Detailed Description

ApplicationWindow is a Window that adds convenience for positioning items, such as MenuBar, ToolBar, and StatusBar in a platform independent manner.

ApplicationWindow {
    id: window
    visible: true

    menuBar: MenuBar {
        Menu { MenuItem {...} }
        Menu { MenuItem {...} }
    }

    toolBar: ToolBar {
        RowLayout {
            anchors.fill: parent
            ToolButton {...}
        }
    }

    TabView {
        id: myContent
        anchors.fill: parent
        ...
    }
}

Note: By default, an ApplicationWindow is not visible.

The Qt Quick Controls - Gallery example is a good starting point to explore this type.

Property Documentation

This group holds the size constraints of the content item. This is the area between the ToolBar and the StatusBar. The ApplicationWindow will use this as input when calculating the effective size constraints of the actual window. It holds these 6 properties for describing the minimum, implicit and maximum sizes:

contentItem.minimumHeightThe minimum height of the content item.
contentItem.implicitWidthThe implicit width of the content item.

This property holds the MenuBar.

By default, this value is not set.
