QMacStyle - Implements an Appearance Manager style
virtual ~QMacStyle ()
The QMacStyle class implements an Appearance Manager style.
This class is implemented as a wrapper to the Apple Appearance Manager. This allows your
application to be styled by whatever theme your Macintosh is using. This is done by having
primitives in QStyle implemented in terms of what the Macintosh would normally theme (i.e.
There are additional issues that should be taken into consideration to make an application
compatible with the Aqua Style Guidelines. Some of these issues are outlined below.
Layout - The restrictions on window layout are such that some aspects of layout that are
style-dependent cannot be achieved using QLayout. Changes are being considered (and
feedback would be appreciated) to make layouts QStyle-able. Some of the restrictions
involve horizontal and vertical widget alignment and widget size (covered below).
Widget size - Aqua allows widgets to have specific fixed sizes. Qt does not fully
implement this behaviour so as to maintain multiplatform compatibility. As a result some
widgets sizes may be inappropriate (and subsequently not rendered correctly by the
Appearance Manager).The QWidget::sizeHint() will be return the appropriate size for many
managed widgets (widgets enumerated in QStyle::ContentsType).
Effects - QMacStyle (in contrast to QAquaStyle) is not emulating (except where Appearance
Manager does not provide certain capabilities), for example QPushButton pulsing effects.
In this case a near matching emulation has been implemented, but naturally this will not
be as reliable as similar functionality built into the Appearance Manager. Please report
any issues you see in effects or non-standard widgets.
There are other issues that need to be considered in the feel of your application
(including the general color scheme to match the Aqua colors). The Guidelines mentioned
above will remain current with new advances and design suggestions for Mac OS X.
Note that the functions provided by QMacStyle are reimplementations of QStyle functions;
see QStyle for their documentation.
