\section1 Specifying Run Settings for Qt Quick UI Projects
You can specify run settings for the \gui Desktop target:
\o In the \gui {Qt version} field, select a Qt version that has support
for QML.
\o In the \gui Arguments field, you can specify command line arguments
to be passed to the executable.
\o In the \gui {Main QML file}, select the file that \QQV will be
started with.
\o In the \gui Debugger group, select the languages to debug:
\gui{C++} and \gui QML. \gui {Debug port} is the port to access
\QQV. You can use any free port in the registered port range.
For more information, see \l{Debugging Qt Quick Projects}.
\note Opening a socket at a well-known port presents a security risk. Anyone
on the Internet could connect to the application that you are debugging and
execute any JavaScript functions. Therefore, you must make sure that the
port is properly protected by a firewall.

\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
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{}{Border Image}
and \l{}{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{}{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
{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
components. You can change the fill and border colors and add
