    Default Click and drag for QMenuBar

    Hi guys,

    I want to make my application support click & drag option on QMenuBar because I'm using Qt::Window | Qt::CustomizeWindowHint flags.

    How can I add click & option for QMenuBar?

    PS
    See the attachment plz (screenshot & snippet)

    You can turn it to a QToolBar.

    Thx, it seems that my question wasn't clear.

    I want to simulate the behavior of title bar on menu bar.

    Why not just use QToolBar then?

    OK, but QToolBar doesn't have suitable signals for simulating title bar behavior! I'm looking for something like this (it's just a pseudo):
    Qt Code:
    1. MainWindow::MainWindow(QWidget *parent) :
    2. QMainWindow(parent),
    3. ui(new Ui::MainWindow)
    4. {
    5. setWindowFlags(Qt::Window | Qt::CustomizeWindowHint);
    6. ui->setupUi(this);
    7.  
    8. QHBoxLayout *lay = new QHBoxLayout();
    9. lay->setContentsMargins(0,0,0,0);
    10. lay->addWidget(ui->menuBar);
    11. lay->addWidget(ui->widget_buttons);
    12. ui->toolBar->setLayout(lay);
    13. connect(ui->menuBar, SIGNAL(clicked()), this, SLOT(setPoint()));
    14. connect(ui->menuBar, SIGNAL(mouseMove()), this, SLOT(setCoordinates()));
    15. }
    16. void MainWindow::setPoint()
    17. {
    18. point = cursor().pos();
    19. ui->statusBar->setWindowTitle(QString("X:%1 - Y:%2").arg(point.x()).arg(point.y()));
    20. }
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode

    Oh now I see what you want...
    You want a custom title bar... I thought you want to be able to move your QMenuBar...

    There is no way around it - you will have to subclass what ever you use as your titlebar (QMenuBar in your case), and implement the functionality you need there.
