    Set stylesheet for menubar / menupane


    My application is in FULL SCREEN mode with softkeys only visible. My application widget has a different background color. While the Menu Bar is having the default theme.

    In the widget displaying full screen, the following code snippet is used for showing the menu bar.

    Qt::WindowFlags flags = windowFlags();
    			flags |= Qt::WindowSoftkeysVisibleHint;
        		 m_menu = new QMenu(this);
        		m_menu->setStyleSheet("background-color: #fff");
        		m_menu->addAction("Logout", this, SLOT(on_logout_clicked()));
    			QAction *optionsAction = new QAction("Options", this);
    			QAction *backSoftKeyAction = new QAction(QString("Back"), this);
    			QObject::connect(backSoftKeyAction, SIGNAL(triggered()), this, SLOT(previousView()));
    Help me with the following:
    1. I am unable to get the instance of the menubar.
    2. Also, how can I set the stylesheet for the menubar/menupane. (not for menu items)

    Re: Set stylesheet for menubar / menupane

    You can't apply a stylesheet to a native options menu. The current Qt release for Symbian does not even attempt to stylesheet it. Even if it would, it could only use some parts of stylesheets, as native menu component does not support all the options available for stylesheets.
