QT5OPTIONS(7)		 Qt Command Line Documentation		 QT5OPTIONS(7)

       qt5options - Common commandline options for all applications based on
       the Qt(TM) toolkit

       Qt application [-style= style / -style style]
		      [-stylesheet= stylesheet / -stylesheet stylesheet]
		      [-widgetcount] [-reverse]	[-qmljsdebugger= port]
		      [-platform platformName[:options]]
		      [-platformpluginpath path]
		      [-platformtheme platformTheme] [-plugin plugin]
		      [-qwindowgeometry	geometry] [-qwindowicon	icon]
		      [-qwindowtitle title] [-reverse] [-session session]
		      [-display	hostname:screen_number]	[-geometry geometry]
		      [-dialogs= [xp|none]] [-fontengine= freetype]
		      [-h, --help and -? on Windows(R)]	[-v --version]

       The following options apply to all Qt(TM) applications:

       -style= style / -style style
	   Set the application GUI style. Possible values depend on the	system
	   configuration. If Qt(TM) is compiled	with additional	styles or has
	   additional styles as	plugins	these will be available	to the -style
	   command line	option.

       -stylesheet= stylesheet / -stylesheet stylesheet
	   Set the application styleSheet. The value must be a path to a file
	   that	contains the Style Sheet.

	   Print debug message at the end about	number of widgets left
	   undestroyed and maximum number of widgets existed at	the same time.

	   Set the application's layout	direction to Qt::RightToLeft. This
	   option is intended to aid debugging and should not be used in
	   production. The default value is automatically detected from	the
	   user's locale (see also QLocale::textDirection()).

       -qmljsdebugger= port
	   Activate the	QML/JS debugger	with a specified port. The value must
	   be of format	port:1234[,block], where block is optional and will
	   make	the application	wait until a debugger connects to it.

       -platform platformName[:options]
	   Specify the Qt(TM) Platform Abstraction (QPA) plugin.

       -platformpluginpath path
	   Specify the path to platform	plugins.

       -platformtheme platformTheme
	   Specify the platform	theme.

       -plugin plugin
	   Specify additional plugins to load. The argument may	appear
	   multiple times.

       -qwindowgeometry	geometry
	   Specify the window geometry for the main window using the
	   X11-syntax. For example: -qwindowgeometry 100x100+50+50

       -qwindowicon icon
	   Set the default window icon.

       -qwindowtitle title
	   Set the title of the	first window.

       -session	session
	   Restore the application from	an earlier session.

       -display	hostname:screen_number
	   Switch displays on X11. Overrides the DISPLAY environment variable.

       -geometry geometry
	   Specify the window geometry for the main window on X11. For
	   example: -geometry 100x100+50+50

       -dialogs= [xp|none]
	   Only	available for the Windows(R) platform. XP uses native style
	   dialogs and none disables them.

       -fontengine= freetype
	   Use the FreeType font engine.

       -h, --help and -? on Windows(R)
	   Print all options and the application description.

       -v --version
	   Display the version string of the application.
