    Exclamation To set keyboard focus on QMenu item pragrammatically

    i am developing a Qt based GUI software.Whenever this software starts up, focus is set to the mainwindow.And there is no way to access the menu bar unless you are setting the focus to the menu by clicking the mouse on it.But my software requirements restricted the use of the mouse(only keyboard will be used as the medium of interaction with users);plz advise how
    can i do that

    Here is my existing code.

    main.cpp


    Qt Code:
    1. #include <QApplication>
    2. #include <QMainWindow>
    3. #include <QMenuBar>
    4. int main(int argc, char **argv)
    5. {
    6. QApplication app(argc, argv);
    7.  
    8. QMainWindow *window = new QMainWindow();
    9.  
    10.  
    11. window->setWindowTitle(QString::fromUtf8("Test:QMenu"));
    12. window->resize(336, 227);
    13.  
    14.  
    15.  
    16. QAction *newAct = new QAction("&New",window);
    17. QAction *openAct = new QAction("&Open",window);
    18. QAction *saveAct = new QAction("&Save",window);
    19.  
    20. QMenu *fileMenu;
    21.  
    22. fileMenu = window->menuBar()->addMenu("&File");
    23. fileMenu->addAction(newAct);
    24. fileMenu->addAction(openAct);
    25. fileMenu->addAction(saveAct);
    26.  
    27.  
    28. window->show();
    29.  
    30. fileMenu->popup(QPoint(10,10));
    31.  
    32.  
    33.  
    34. return app.exec();
    35. }

    Set keyboard accelerators on your menus.
    Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is futile.

    You might consider looking into tab order?
