INI OptionsΒΆ

To get a list of current INI file options run

qtpyvcp -h

Command line options are lower case and use the dash, INI file options are upper case and use the underscore. Example: --hide-menu-bar >> HIDE_MENU_BAR.

Options available in the INI file are:

VCP = name

STYLESHEET = style.qss

# Initial size of the window in pixels
SIZE = <W>x<H>

# Initial position of the window in pixels
POSITION = <X>x<Y>

# Flag to start with window fullscreen
FULLSCREEN = bool

# Flag to start with window maximized
MAXIMIZE = bool

# Hides the menu bar, if present
HIDE_MENU_BAR = bool

# Hides the status bar, if present

File paths can be relative to the config dir, relative to the users home, or absolute. Environment variables are expanded.

# File Paths:
#   File paths can be relative to the config dir:
#     LOG_FILE = qtpyvcp.log

#   Or relative to $HOME: (May not be compatible with other GUIs!)
#     LOG_FILE = ~/qtpyvcp.log

#   Or at an absolute location:
#     LOG_FILE = /home/<USER>/qtpyvcp.log

#   Enviroment vars are also expanded:
#     LOG_FILE = $CONFIG_DIR/qtpyvcp.log
