GUI style customization

Starting from version 4.5.0, QLC+ can read a user custom file to change the GUI appearance in a very accessible way.
If no file is found, QLC+ will start with the default style.

The GUI style file

The file name is hardcoded into QLC+ and must be: qlcplusStyle.qss
The style file must also be placed in a specific path which is:

The style file must have a CSS syntax. If you're comfortable with web designing, you should find the creation of this file very easy !
Since the style file is strictly related to the inner Qt objects, you might want to read the following articles to find out the elements' names and the additional CSS properties the Qt team added to the default CSS syntax.
Qt Style Sheets
Qt Style Sheets Examples
It is up to your imagination how you prefer to customize the QLC+ GUI appearance! If you find a style worth sharing, don't forget to send in your contribution by posting it online in the QLC+ forum
