    Default Semi-transparency through parents' widgets

    Hi all,
    Can you help me make a widget transparent through parents' widgets. By that I mean making a widget transparent to the desktop (for example) while the parent widget is opaque.
    I've tried stuff like
    Qt Code:
    1. setStyleSheet("background-color: QColor(r,g,b,%);");
    2. setAttribute(Qt::WA_PaintOnScreen);
    3. setAttribute(Qt::WA_PaintUnclipped);
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 
    but had no luck.
    Thanks in advance!
