Branding Examples

The Branding examples are created around Qt Quick Components for Symbian to showcase different approaches on how to change or add color to UI elements. This application contains various techniques and covers most of the existing UI elements. The level of changes are simple, like exchanging an image, to rather complex ones, like replacing an entire component. However, the main goal is to preserve the look and feel of the UI components as much as possible and make the application appear like an integral part of the phone.

This example application is hosted in Nokia Developer Projects:

This example application demonstrates:

  • Creating a branded Qt Quick application
