    Message box not displaying as expected

    void MessageBox::ShowMessageBox()
    	QMessageBox msgBox;
    	msgBox.setInformativeText("Just show infornation.");
    	msgBox.setStandardButtons(QMessageBox::Ok | QMessageBox::Cancel);
    	int ret = msgBox.exec();
    	 switch (ret) {
    	   case QMessageBox::Save:
    	       // Save was clicked
    	   case QMessageBox::Ok:
    	       // ok was clicked
    	       // should never be reached
    When I call the above method, a message box is displayed in the Nokia simulator as shown below:

    But I need the message box to be:
    1. Centered on the screen
    2. the button should appear in the message box and not at the bottom as menu buttons.

    Can anyone please help me fix this issue? The project code can be found here: download project.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Re: Message box not displaying as expected

    Simulator runs Qt app like it would be running on the desktop plus it has access to device theme graphics.
    Any other functionalities from Symbian (dialog positionings etc) Qt port are not simulated. So, please check the application in a real HW.
