    Qt Code:
    1. QApplication app(...);
    2. QFile qss("stylesheet.qss");
    3. qss.open(QFile::ReadOnly);
    4. app.setStyleSheet(qss.readAll());
    5. qss.close();
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode

    QSS and Q_INIT_RESOURCES have nothing to do with each other.

    As far my understand I think qss(qt Style sheet) is also a resources and Q_INIT_RESOURCES is required to initialise all resources. So i asked this. I also posted this inforum http://www.qtcentre.org/forum/f-qt-p...rce-12508.html But i didnt get any reply. So i asked this.

    That's not true.
    and Q_INIT_RESOURCES is required to initialise all resources.
    That's not true as well.

    "Qt resources" is a virtual filesystem, nothing more, nothing less. Stylesheets have nothing to do with files and in this particular case the stylesheet is loaded from an external and real file.

    Q_INIT_RESOURCES is only needed if you want to initialize resources that are embedded int a static library on some of the platforms. It' required to link them to the filesystem already existing in the application.

    Do you need the macro? Yes, you can use it, but you probably don't have to.
