    Add a QLabel widget to the toolbar and place your image in it as a pixmap.

    Question Re: how i can add image in my toolbar

    thanks but i wanna add it as icon through designer
    i had add all icons through resource editor and made a .QRC file (in which all icons are defined and declared) so i wanna same for image through which i ll use the object name and put the url on object in resource editor....
    i tried to use QLabel but it is not in use like adding oject on another object
    becoz toolbar it self is an object and using another object i.eQLabel is not working

    plz do tell if there any solution through designer otherwise by Programming
    thanks in advance
    thanks & regards

    Unfortunately we don't always get what we want. You'll have to do it manually.

    i had add all icons through resource editor and made a .QRC file (in which all icons are defined and declared) so i wanna same for image through which i ll use the object name and put the url on object in resource editor....
    That doesn't mean you can't use the resource from hand written code...

    i tried to use QLabel but it is not in use like adding oject on another object
    becoz toolbar it self is an object and using another object i.eQLabel is not working
    I don't know what you mean but this certainly works:
    Qt Code:
    1. QLabel *l = new QLabel(this);
    2. l->setPixmap(QPixmap(":/myresource.png"));
    3. toolBar->addWidget(l);
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode

    Is the image added to a resource file and is the resource file compiled into the app?

    The paths are probably incorrect somewhere (are you using relative paths anywhere?)... are you sure you are using the resource system? MacOSX launches its apps with a different working directory than Windows or Linux which might be the thing causing problems when using relative paths.
