Using custom Font with Qt

Recently in one of my application I wanted to use custom font and in little time I figured out that Qt has vary nice support to use custom font with both Qt C++ and QML.

I used following code in my application. Here is output of below code.

#include <QPainter>
#include <QFontDatabase>

MyWidget::MyWidget(QWidget *parent) :

void MyWidget::paintEvent(QPaintEvent */*event*/) {
    QPainter painter(this);
    painter.drawText(10,20,"Default Font");
    painter.setFont(QFont("Sandoval Speed"));
    painter.drawText(10,50,"Custom Font");

Following is code to use custom font with QML.


FontLoader { id: myFont; source: "sandsped.ttf" }

    Column {
        spacing: 30
        anchors.horizontalCenter: parent.horizontalCenter
        Text {
            text: "Default Font"

        Text {
            text: "Custom Font";
