hey there i was in the middle of creating my menus and added a cut, copy and paste actions to the edit menu. they are supposed to show the .png files of the cut copy and paste pics but after comiplation they dont show up and i cant figure out why? heres my code below:

pasteAct = new QAction(QIcon(":/images/paste.png"), tr("Pa&ste"), this);
connect(pasteAct, SIGNAL(triggered()), this, SLOT(paste()));

i have a folder named images inside my application folder with the pictures but it still doesnt show, any ideas??

Could you show us your .qrc file?

You need one to make the resources work (i.e. the ":/..." paths). You can create it using Qt Designer, then add "RESOURCES += filename.qrc" to your .pro file.
