    Perhaps;
    Code:
    menu->hide();
    will do it?
    Have not tried this myself but I have seen this function for QMenu so perhaps it will work for you?
    Cheers,
    Jon

    Black electrical tape works pretty well for my "Check engine" light -- maybe you should try that.

    If you are willing to use native code, you could:

    CEikonEnv::Static()->AppUiFactory()->Cba()->MakeVisible(EFalse); (note that it might be good idea to add a check if Cba() exists)

    Not sure whether or not the background underneath the CBA will get correctly drawn. If not, you might want to reset the extent of your window as well.

    Re: How can i hide the bottom menu from Symbian Phones

    Hello Fuzzbender i have tried putting something like this in my main:

    #ifdef Q_OS_SYMBIAN
    CEikonEnv::Static()->AppUiFactory()->Cba()->MakeVisible(EFalse);
    #endif

    But didnt work,as i am a new to this maybe i wrote it wrong,browsed around but still didnt find any way to remove this default softkey,only to change its name or replace it,but when i remove the new softkey this one reappears,hmm Is removing it even possible?Or maybe another solution,i dont want my app in fullscreen mode because i want the top bar displayed( the one with the signal strenght,battery indicator etc),i saw it it possible to run an app in fullscreen with the bottom menu visible using window flags,can this be done only with the top bar visible?

    In the US all autos have a "Check Engine" light that comes on when the computer detects a problem. In older cars it's common for the light to be on all the time, and, to prevent the annoying glare, many people cover it over with something such as electrical tape.

    Currently there are no flags to show just StatusPane. Please make a suggestion to http://bugreports.qt.nokia.com.
