Source code

QWidget* centralwidget = new QWidget(this);
/* Add new softkey "MyOption" */
QAction* newOption = new QAction(tr("MyOption"), this);
/* set soft key for Options */
/* Add new softkey "MyExit" */
QAction* newExit = new QAction(tr("MyExit"), this);
/* set soft key for Exit */
QList<QAction *> softKeys;
/* set new soft keys */


The code snippet is expected to show new softkey labels in Widget.
