Style Sheets Reference

CopperSpice Style Sheets support various properties, pseudo-states, and subcontrols that make it possible to customize the look of widgets.

Widgets which can be Styled

The following table lists the CopperSpice widgets which can be customized using style sheets.

WidgetHow to Style

QAbstractScrollArea

Supports the box model. All derivatives of QAbstractScrollArea, including QTextEdit, and QAbstractItemView (all item view classes), support scrollable backgrounds using background-attachment. Setting the background-attachment to fixed provides a background-image that does not scroll with the viewport. Setting the background-attachment to scroll, scrolls the background-image when the scroll bars move.

Refer to Customizing QAbstractScrollArea for an example.

QCheckBox

Supports the box model. The check indicator can be styled using the ::indicator subcontrol. By default, the indicator is placed in the Top Left corner of the Contents rectangle of the widget.The spacing property specifies the spacing between the check indicator and the text.

Refer to Customizing QCheckBox for an example.

QColumnView The grip can be styled be using the image property. The arrow indicators can by styled using the ::left-arrow subcontrol and the ::right-arrow subcontrol.
QComboBox

The frame around the combobox can be styled using the box model. The drop down button can be styled using the ::drop-down subcontrol. By default, the drop-down button is placed in the top right corner of the padding rectangle of the widget. The arrow mark inside the drop-down button can be styled using the ::down-arrow subcontrol. By default, the arrow is placed in the center of the contents rectangle of the drop-down subcontrol.

Refer to Customizing QComboBox for an example.

QDateEdit Refer to QSpinBox.
QDateTimeEdit Refer to QSpinBox.
QDialog Supports only the background, background-clip and background-origin properties. Make sure you define the CS_OBJECT macro for your custom widget.
QDialogButtonBox The layout of buttons can be altered using the button-layout property.
QDockWidget

Supports styling of the title bar and the title bar buttons when docked.The dock widget border can be styled using the border property. The ::title subcontrol can be used to customize the title bar. The close and float buttons are positioned with respect to the ::title subcontrol using the ::close-button and ::float-button respectively.

When the title bar is vertical the :vertical pseudo class is set. Depending on QDockWidget::DockWidgetFeature, the :closable :floatable and :movable pseudo states may also be set.

Use QMainWindow::separator to style the resize handle.

The style sheet has no effect when the QDockWidget is undocked as CopperSpice uses native top level windows when undocked.

Refer to Customizing QDockWidget for an example.

QDoubleSpinBox Refer to QSpinBox.
QFrame

Supports the box model. Setting a stylesheet on a QLabel automatically sets the QFrame::frameStyle property to QFrame::StyledPanel.

Refer to Customizing QFrame for an example.

QGroupBox

Supports the box model. The title can be styled using the ::title subcontrol. By default, the title is placed depending on QGroupBox::textAlignment.In the case of a checkable QGroupBox, the title includes the check indicator. The indicator is styled using the ::indicator subcontrol. The spacing property can be used to control the spacing between the text and indicator.

Refer to Customizing QGroupBox for an example.

QHeaderView

Supports the box model. The sections of the header view are styled using the ::section subcontrol. It supports the :middle, :first, :last, :only-one, :next-selected, :previous-selected, :selected, and :checked pseudo states. A sort indicator can be styled using the ::up-arrow and the ::down-arrow subcontrol.

Refer to Customizing QHeaderView for an example.

QLabel

Supports the box model. Does not support the :hover pseudo-state. Setting a stylesheet on a QLabel automatically sets the QFrame::frameStyle property to QFrame::StyledPanel.

Refer to Customizing QFrame for an example (a QLabel derives from QFrame).

QLineEdit

Supports the box model. The color and background of the selected item is styled using selection-color and selection-background-color respectively.

The password character can be styled using the lineedit-password-character property.

Refer to Customizing QLineEdit for an example.

QListView

Supports the box model. When alternating row colors is enabled, the alternating colors can be styled using the alternate-background-color property. The color and background of the selected item is styled using selection-color and selection-background-color respectively.

The selection behavior is controlled by the show-decoration-selected property. Use the ::item subcontrol for more fine grained control over the items in the QListView.

Individual tabs may be styled using the ::tab subcontrol. Close buttons using the ::close-button. The tabs support the :only-one, :first, :last, :middle, :previous-selected, :next-selected, :selected pseudo states. The :top, :left, :right, :bottom> pseudo states depending on the orientation of the tabs.

Overlapping tabs for the selected state are created by using negative margins or using the absolute position scheme. The tear indicator of the QTabBar is styled using the ::tear subcontrol. QTabBar used two QToolButtons for its scrollers that can be styled using the QTabBar QToolButton selector. To specify the width of the scroll button use the ::scroller subcontrol.

The alignment of the tabs within the QTabBar is styled using the alignment property. To change the position of the QTabBar within a QTabWidget, use the tab-bar subcontrol (and set subcontrol-position).

The corner widget in a QTableView is implemented as a QAbstractButton and can be styled using the "QTableView QTableCornerButton::section" selector.

If you only set a background-color on a QTableCornerButton, the background may not appear unless you set the border property to some value. This is because, by default, the QTableCornerButton draws a native border which completely overlaps the background-color. The color of the grid can be specified using the gridline-color property.

Refer to QAbsractScrollArea to style scrollable backgrounds. Refer to Customizing QTableView for an example.

QTableWidget Refer to QTableView.

When the QToolButton displays arrows, the ::up-arrow, ::down-arrow, ::left-arrow and ::right-arrow subcontrols are used.

If you only set a background-color on a QToolButton, the background will not appear unless you set the border property to some value. This is because, by default, the QToolButton draws a native border which completely overlaps the background-color.

QToolButton { background-color: red; border: none; }
  Refer to \ref stylesheet-qtoolbutton "Customizing QToolButton" for an example.
QToolBox Supports the box model. The individual tabs can by styled using the ::tab subcontrol. The tabs support the :only-one, :first, :last, :middle, :previous-selected, :next-selected, :selected pseudo states.
QToolTip

Supports the box model. The opacity property controls the opacity of the tooltip.

Refer to Customizing QFrame for an example (a QToolTip is a QFrame).

QTreeView

Supports the box model. When alternating row colors is enabled, the alternating colors can be styled using the alternate-background-color property. The color and background of the selected item is styled using selection-color and selection-background-color respectively.

The selection behavior is controlled by the show-decoration-selected property.

The branches of the tree view can be styled using the ::branch subcontrol. The ::branch subcontrol supports the :open, :closed, :has-sibling and :has-children pseudo states.

Use the ::item subcontrol for more fine grained control over the items in the QTreeView.

Refer to QAbsractScrollArea to style scrollable backgrounds.

Refer to Customizing QTreeView for an example to style the branches.

QTreeWidget Refer to QTreeView.
QWidget

Supports only the background, background-clip and background-origin properties.If you subclass from QWidget, you need to provide a paintEvent for your custom QWidget as below:

void CustomWidget::paintEvent(QPaintEvent *)
{
opt.init(this);
QPainter p(this);
style()->drawPrimitive(QStyle::PE_Widget, &opt, &p, this);
}
  The above code is a no-operation if there is no stylesheet set. Make sure you define the CS_OBJECT macro for your custom widget.

Specifies gradient fills. There are three types of gradient fills:

  • Linear gradients interpolate colors between start and end points.
  • Radial gradients interpolate colors between a focal point and end points on a circle surrounding it.
  • Conical gradients interpolate colors around a center point.
  Gradients are specified in Object Bounding Mode. Imagine the box in which the gradient is rendered, to have its top
  left corner at (0, 0) and its bottom right corner at (1, 1). Gradient parameters are then specified as percentages
  from 0 to 1. These values are extrapolated to actual box coordinates at runtime. It is possible specify values that
  lie outside the bounding box (-0.6 or 1.8, for instance).
Warning
The stops have to appear sorted in ascending order.
/* linear gradient from white to green */

Length

Number (px | pt | em | ex)?

A number followed by a measurement unit. The CSS standard recommends that user agents must ignore a declaration with an illegal value. It is mandatory to specify measurement units. For compatibility with earlier versions, numbers without measurement units are treated as pixels in most contexts. The supported units are shown below.

  • px: pixels
  • pt: the size of one point (i.e., 1/72 of an inch)
  • em: the em width of the font (i.e., the width of 'M')
  • ex: the ex width of the font (i.e., the height of 'x')
