    Default Change ONLY the background color of a QFrame, not everything in it.

    I have a QFrame that I want to change the background color.

    I do so using the following:

    my_qframe->setStyleSheet("background-color:yellow;");

    Which works -- to a point

    I have several buttons in that frame. I do not want their colors changed, but they do change.

    Is there a way around this?

    Thank You

    Perhaps:
    Qt Code:
    1. my_qframe->setStyleSheet("QFrame { background-color:yellow; }");
