Detailed Description

The MenuBar type provides a QML API for native platform menubars.

A menubar consists of a list of drop-down menus.

MenuBar {
    id: menuBar

    Menu {
        id: fileMenu
        title: qsTr("File")
        // ...

    Menu {
        id: editMenu
        title: qsTr("&Edit")
        // ...

    Menu {
        id: viewMenu
        title: qsTr("&View")
        // ...

    Menu {
        id: helpMenu
        title: qsTr("&Help")
        // ...

MenuBar is currently available on the following platforms:

  • macOS
  • Android
  • Linux (only available on desktop environments that provide a global D-Bus menu bar)
  • Windows

Note: Types in Qt.labs modules are not guaranteed to remain compatible in future versions.
