Visual Studio color scheme for Qt Creator

Close QtCreator if you have it open then save this VisualStudio.xml file in your Qt Creator styles directory. The directory is located as follows:

Linux:~/.config/Nokia/qtcreator/styles/
Windows:%APPDATA%\Nokia\qtcreator\styles
OS X:Unknown; I haven't installed Qt Creator in OS X yet (will update)

Then in Qt Creator look under Tools->Options->Text Editor->Font & Colors and select the Color Scheme “VisualStudio”.

I will probably make adjustments to this over time as this is just my first cut. Send me any improvements.

    Thanks! For Qt Creator 3.3 (Qt 5.4.1) on Windows, I found it necessary to create the “styles” subfolder:

    %APPDATA%QtProjectqtcreatorstyles

    Once that was in place, I was able to set the Color Scheme.
