simple MainWindow class implementation with frameless window and custom dark style.

It adds also support for titlebar and buttons (minimize, maximize, close)

Look is based on the VS2013 application window (flat and frameless window)

Qt and OS

  • tested with Qt5.5.0, Qt5.9.0 and Qt5.10.0
  • tested on Windows 7, Windows 10,MacOSX 10.12.5 and MacOS 10.13.2

PyQt5

Here is an unofficial Python port of my implementation.

How to use

  • add additional include plath to framelesswindow
  • add resources framelesswindow.qrc and darkstyle.qrc
  • add
    #include "framelesswindow.h"
    into main.cpp, create window
    FramelessWindow framelessWindow;
    and assign your mainwindow object as content
    framelessWindow.setContent(mainWindow);
    and show it
    framelessWindow.show();
  • add
    #include "DarkStyle.h"
    into main.cpp and call
    a.setStyle(new DarkStyle);
#include 
#include "DarkStyle.h"
#include "framelesswindow.h"
#include "mainwindow.h"

int main(int argc, char *argv[]) { QApplication a(argc, argv);

// style our application with custom dark style a.setStyle(new DarkStyle);

// create frameless window (and set windowState or title) FramelessWindow framelessWindow; //framelessWindow.setWindowState(Qt::WindowMaximized); //framelessWindow.setWindowTitle("test title"); //framelessWindow.setWindowIcon(a.style()->standardIcon(QStyle::SP_DesktopIcon));

// create our mainwindow instance MainWindow *mainWindow = new MainWindow;

// add the mainwindow to our custom frameless window framelessWindow.setContent(mainWindow); framelessWindow.show();

return a.exec(); }
