    You'd have to reimplement the style and draw all the widgets yourself. And if you want to preserve the Aqua look of your MAC, I don't think it's possible on Qt side at all. You'd have to tweak your system settings, I guess... Or just change the widget style and use style-sheets to apply roundness to widget borders (but I don't think that's what you want).

    Thanx 4 d Reply,

    By Mistake i wrote Qt4.2 , Actully I am using QT 4.1 , on Intel MAC.

    And I think Qt 4.1 doesn't support style-sheets.

    Is there any other way to change the looks of QMainWindow and other widgets..

    You'd have to reimplement the style and draw all the widgets yourself.
    As u said , I mean How can I reimplement the styles.....Can you explain it to me with an example.

    Thanx

    Take a look at the docs for QStyle. There should be a link to an example that reimplements a style. And remember it won't work for top level windows. For those you can use QWidget::setMask().

    By using setMask ; we can set the Bitmap or any region for the widget, But I want to change the shape of the widget , i.e I want to make the edges of the widget "round".

    The bitmap says whether a particular pixel of the widget should be visible or not. If you clear bits of the mask responsible for corners of the widget, you'll get rounded top-level widgets. Just make sure to adjust the mask when the window gets resized.
