Qt Quick Examples and Tutorials

Qt includes several examples to demonstrate a particular usage. The examples run as applications or as non-GUI examples in Qt Creator. Qt tutorials show the step-by-step information and give insight to particular code snippets.

This page lists the Qt Qml and Qt Quick examples, however, many other Qt modules contain examples related to their QML API.

Running the Examples and Demos

The examples are packaged with the Qt installers and are accessed through Qt Creator. For more information about running examples in Qt Creator, visit the Building and Running an Example page.

Open and run examples within Qt Creator's Welcome mode. Most of the examples run on various platforms and to search for platform-specific examples, type the platform name (or any keywords) in the search field. For example, typing mobile in the search field lists the examples that are fully compatible with the mobile platforms.

Qt Quick Demos

Here is a list of fully-functional demo applications. They are full applications that show how a deployable Qt application is built and structured. Many of the demos are deployable to mobile and desktop platforms.


A Qt Quick app designed for landscape and portrait devices that uses custom components, responsive layouts, and JavaScript for the application logic

Car Configurator

A car model example that demonstrates using Qt Quick 3D cameras, extended scene environment and Qt Quick 3D

Coffee Machine

A Qt Quick application with a state-based custom user interface


A dice throwing application using Qt Quick 3D Physics and other Qt Modules

FX & Material Showroom

Demonstrates material and effects capabilities of Qt Quick 3D. This example demonstrates how you can use particle effects and materials in Qt Quick 3D

Lightning Viewer

An application with a responsive UI showing lightning strikes on a map in real-time by combining Qt Quick, Qt Location, Qt Positioning and Qt Websockets

OSM Buildings

A 3D building viewer of OSM (OpenStreetMap) buildings map data

Photo Surface

A QML app for touch devices that uses a Repeater with a FolderListModel to access content in a folder, and a PinchHandler to handle pinch gestures on the fetched content

Qt Quick Demo - Clocks

A QML clock application that demonstrates using a ListView type to display data generated by a ListModel and a SpringAnimation type to animate images

Qt Quick Demo - RESTful API client

Example of how to create a RESTful API QML client

Qt Quick Demo - RSS News

A QML RSS news reader that uses XmlListModel and XmlListModelRole custom QML types to download XML data, ListModel and ListElement to create a category list, and ListView to display the data

Robot Arm

Demonstrates how to add a C++ backend to a 3D project from Qt Design Studio. This example demonstrates adding a C++ backend to a 3D project created in Qt Design Studio. The example itself consists of an interactive industrial robot arm in a Qt Quick 3D scene. The 2D UI to control the robot arm is implement using Qt Quick Controls

Same Game

A configurable stock chart for 100 stocks


A user interface for a home thermostat, implemented in Qt Quick. It demonstrates how to create responsive applications that scale from large desktop displays to mobile and small embedded displays

To Do List

A QML implementation of to do list application that demonstrates how to create application thats looks native on any platform

Developing Qt Quick Applications

The following pages show how to develop Qt applications using Qt Creator and Qt Quick. The pages demonstrate various steps such as use cases and introductory material. For more information about Qt Quick Applications and related modules, visit the QML Applications page.

Extending QML

The following tutorials show how a QML-based application can be combined and exteneded with C++ code using the Qt Qml module.


Examples are small applications which show how to implement various Qt Quick features. The examples run on various platforms and are opened from within Qt Creator.
