What seems to be the problem?
If you don't know how to apply your style sheet implemented in qss file you should do like this

QString labelStyle;
QFile file(":/images/Styles/LabelStyle.qss");
file.open(QIODevice::ReadOnly);
labelStyle = file.readAll();
file.close();

I'm applying the qss as above u've asked. my problem is that i need to apply frameshadow:Sunken to QLable .
How ll i apply thru qss file.
my code inside qss file is as follows.

QLabel
{
background-color: ash;
color: black;
font-family : MS Sans Serif;
font-size : 8px;
font-weight : normal;
}

Why don't you just use QFrame::setFrameShadow (QFrame::Sunken) on your QLabel ?

Am not sure if this will help -

QLabel{ color: palette(shadow); }

also have a look at frameshadow topic

Looks like you're out of luck in the sense that, by default, according to the docs:



Since 4.3, setting a stylesheet on a QLabel automatically sets the QFrame::frameStyle property to QFrame::StyledPanel.


Have you tried using a border? Something like:



QLabel
{
border: 1px inset gray;
}


Or something similar?

aahhhh,,, u posted before me :P

I played with the stylesheet example in the QtDemo and made the following changes in code -

nameLabel->setFrameStyle(QFrame::StyledPanel);

and on running the application, i tried edit, and in the edit made the following change -


/* Mark mandatory fields with a brownish color. */
.mandatory {
color: brown;
border-width:2;
border-style: inset;

}


finally something :)
by the way, Philip, ur questions will make everyone expert in using stylesheets :D

It may sound rude but are you familiar with Qt style sheets and Qt itself ?
What I wrote means that you should literally write in your program code. For instance

QLabel myLabel;
myLabel.setFrameShadow (QFrame::Sunken);
I hope it helps
