    \title Using Qt Quick Toolbars

    When you edit QML code in the code editor, you specify the properties
    of QML components. For some properties, such as colors and font names,
    this is not a trivial task. For example, few people can visualize the
    color #18793f.

    To easily edit these properties, you can use the Qt Quick Toolbars.
    When you select a component in the code and a toolbar is available,
     a light bulb icon appears:
    \inlineimage qml-toolbar-indicator.png
    . Select the icon to open the toolbar.

    To open toolbars immediately when you select a component, select
    \gui{Tools > Options > Qt Quick > Qt Quick Toolbar > Always show Quick
    Toolbar}.

    Drag the toolbar to pin it to another location. Select
    \inlineimage qml-toolbar-pin.png
    to unpin the toolbar and move it to its default location. To pin toolbars
    by default, select \gui{Tools > Options > Qt Quick > Qt Quick Toolbar
    > Pin Quick Toolbar}.

    \section1 Previewing Images

    The Qt Quick Toolbar for images allows you to edit the properties of
    \l{http://doc.qt.nokia.com/latest/qml-borderimage.html}{Border Image}
    and \l{http://doc.qt.nokia.com/latest/qml-image.html}{Image} components.
    You can scale and tile the images, replace them with other images,
    preview them, and change the image margins.

    To preview an image, double-click it on the toolbar. In the preview
    dialog, you can zoom the image. Drag the image margins to change them.

    \section1 Formatting Text

    The Qt Quick Toolbar for text allows you to edit the properties of
    \l{http://doc.qt.nokia.com/latest/qml-text.html}{Text} components.
    You can change the font family and size as well as text formatting, style,
    alignment, and color.

    If a property is assigned an expression instead of a value, you
    cannot use the toolbar to edit it. The button for editing the property
    is disabled.

    By default, font size is specified as pixels. To use points, instead,
    change \gui px to \gui pt in the size field.

    \section1 Previewing Animation

    The Qt Quick Toolbar for animation allows you to edit the properties of
    \l{http://doc.qt.nokia.com/4.7/qml-propertyanimation.html}
    {PropertyAnimation} components and the components that inherit it. You can
    change the easing curve type and duration. For some curves, you can also
    specify amplitude, period, and overshoot values.

    Select the play button to preview your changes.

    \section1 Editing Rectangles

    The Qt Quick Toolbar for rectangles allows you to edit the properties of
    \l{http://doc.qt.nokia.com/4.7/qml-rectangle.html}{Rectangle}
    components. You can change the fill and border colors and add
    gradients.

    To add gradient stop points, click above the gradient bar. To remove
    stop points, drag them upwards.
