\gui {Use QML emulation layer which is built by the selected Qt} radio button.
\QC builds the emulation layer when you select the \gui Design mode.
A plugin should behave differently depending on whether it is run by the
emulation layer or an application. For example, animations should not be run
in the \gui Design mode. You can use the value of the QML_PUPPET_MODE
environment variable to check whether the plugin is currently being run
by an application or edited in the \gui Design mode.
