    Default Hide application icon for QGuiApplication?

    Is there a way to hide application icons for Qt Quick built applications?
    Example: not show icon in Ubuntu launcher when application is runing

    Do you mean not showing an entry or showing an entry but without icon?

    For the first you could check if providing certain window flags, e.g. Qt::Tool makes the system treat the window differently than how it usually treats application windows.
    For the second you could try installing a 1x1 pixel icon with a transparent pixel.

    Cheers,

    Hi anda_skoa, thank you for your reply though it didn't worked for me. I tried all the flags and none solved it.

    I found a solution for Qt/C++ applications but couldn't find a way to implement it for my Qt Quick app.
    Here is the solution: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4...e-taskbar-item
    Any suggestions?

    Well, that sets the Qt::Dialog no a subwindow.

    You could try the same with setting that on the QQuickWindow you have and passing a similar dummy parent window to its constructor.
