Detailed Description

Button presents a push-button control that can be pushed or clicked by the user. Buttons are normally used to perform an action, or to answer a question. Typical buttons are OK, Apply, Cancel, Close, Yes, No, and Help.

Button inherits its API from AbstractButton. For instance, you can set text, display an icon, and react to clicks using the AbstractButton API.

A button emits the signal clicked() when it is activated by the user. Connect to this signal to perform the button's action. Buttons also provide the signals canceled(), doubleClicked(), pressed(), released() and pressAndHold() for long presses.

See the snippet below on how to connect to the button's signals.

RowLayout {
    Button {
        text: "Ok"
        onClicked: model.submit()
    Button {
        text: "Cancel"
        onClicked: model.revert()
