Import Statement: import QtQuick




Detailed Description

The ColorGroup type is used to define a set of colors with certain roles. Although a ColorGroup has no visual appearance, it defines colors used to customize rendered items.

Default values of colors are equal to active group colors of default-constructed QPalette.

The following code can be used to create a color group with some colors specified:

ColorGroup {
    alternateBase: "red"
    base: "green"

Property Documentation

alternateBase : color

Used as the alternate background color in item views with alternating row colors.

base : color

Used mostly as the background color for text editor controls and item views. It is usually white or another light color.

brightText : color

A text color that is very different from windowText, and contrasts well with e.g. dark. Typically used for text that needs to be drawn where text, windowText or buttonText would give poor contrast, such as on highlighted buttons.

button : color

The general button background color. This background can be different from window as some styles require a different background color for buttons.

buttonText : color

A foreground color used with the palette color.

dark : color

A foreground color used with the palette color.

highlight : color

A color to indicate a selected item or the current item.

highlightedText : color
