I am trying to follow the style plugin example given here -
The docs state that
Note: On some platforms, the native style will prevent the button from having a red background. In this case, try to run the example in another style (e.g., fusion).

And indeed on my Windows 7 box the color of the button is unchanged.

Does this mean that there is no way to change the backgound color of a widget using style plugins on windows?


No. There are several ways to get a red button on windows. It just means you cannot have a _native_ looking red button since the button background pixmap is provided by the operating system and does not support custom palettes. A custom style is not affected by this limitation since you will be drawing it yourself, similarly you can create a red button with a style sheet or simply use Fusion style with your application or widget when you specifically need custom palette colours.
