Introduction

This article will help us to know how can we create style popup menu using push button in Qt

For creating push button we will use QPushButton. This turns the push button into a menu button, which in some styles will produce a small triangle to the right of the button's text.


Class Definition

#include <QMainWindow>
#include "QHBoxLayout"
#include "QPushButton"
 
namespace Ui {
class Button;
}
 
class Button : public QMainWindow
{
Q_OBJECT
 
public:
explicit Button(QWidget *parent = 0);
~Button();
private:
QWidget* win;
QHBoxLayout *lay;
QMenu *menu;
QPushButton* but1;
};
 
#endif // BUTTON_H

We implement the Push Button in a class called Button, which we derive from QMainWindow. Here we are particularly interested the constructor, so lets discuss below about the constructor in the Class Implementation.


Class Implementation

#include "button.h"
Button::Button(QWidget *parent) :
QMainWindow(parent)
 
{
 
win=new QWidget(this);
win->resize(400,500);
lay=new QHBoxLayout(this);
menu=new QMenu(this);
menu->addMenu("Nokia");
menu->addMenu("N96");
menu->addMenu("N97");
but1=new QPushButton("Menu",this);
but1->setMenu(menu);
lay->addWidget(but1);
win->setLayout(lay);
win->setStyleSheet("* { background-color:rgb(125,100,50);color:rgb(200,150,100); padding: 7px}}");
}
 
Button::~Button()
{
 
}

In the constructor we create a QWidget (widget) of size 400x500 along with a QHBoxLayout (Layout). We create the QMenu (menu) and add items in the menu. Button have been created using QPushButton and add the button to the widget using addWidget() and then set the widget layout through setLayout() method . setStyleSheet() property holds the widget's style sheet.
