    Default resize a QMainWindow

    Hi
    I have some frames inside a QMainWindow central widget.
    I want the window to auto resize as i show/hide the frames.
    How do i manage this? I tried sizepolicy but didn't work.
    Thanks

    I use this to resize widgets:
    Qt Code:
    1. QWidget::resize();
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode

    Set a proper layout to your central widget that contains the frames.
    It's nice to be important but it's more important to be nice.
