Using custom Font with Qt

This Article was posted on Qt ,Maemo and some other stuff:
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 {
            font.family: myFont.name
            text: "Custom Font";
