Dark Knight - My Qt Creator Dark Color scheme

Here is my own Dark color scheme for Qt Creator. I have named it as Dark Knight. :P

See the screenshot below.

To use this color scheme, download this XML file and follow following steps.

How to install:
  1. Goto the Qt Creator setting directory, which is

    Documents and Settings\<user name>\Application Data\Nokia\qtcreator
    under Microsoft Windows XP.

    In case you are using Windows 7 then
    Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\Nokia\qtcreator\styles
    (replace <user name> with your login name)

    and In Linux the path is,


  2. Goto the directory named styles. (Create one if it does not exists!)
  3. Place the downloaded XML file in this directory.

How to change the color scheme in Qt Creator:

  1. Goto Fonts & Colors settings.
    (To open, go through Tools->Options->Text Editor->Font & Colors)
  2. Scroll down and select the new color scheme named Dark Knight.
  3. Press OK.
  4. Enjoy. :)
Note: As Qt Creator is in active development, above mentioned steps may not work with future version of Qt Creator.

I hope you people like it. Suggestions & comments are welcome.

Works with QtCreator 2.0.94 on FC14. I like the high contrast. Thanks for this Raghu.
