Suggests about replicating the style of side menu seen within Google+ & Web Admin Interfaces ?
I am interested in replicating a particularly popular style of side menu for a deskop application. It is used within Google+ and is actually quite popular with a number of admin panels for websites i.e it is a side menu of (icons + text) that appears when you move your mouse over the Home icon or actually what I would really like is possible move the mouse to that area of the application. e.g.
Something like the left menus, but which appears when the mouse hovers over the far left of the screen or the dashboard icon is clicked and also also submenus such as in the 2nd example. It isn't that dissimilar to Qt Creator left menu, but would like the submenu to also be contained within the menu bar.
Any suggests about how I would go about doing this would be much appreciated.
Here is something I've worked on a few month ago.
This won't answer your submenu request, but at least it could be a start.
I take it your code wasn't build with QT 5? As I am getting a lot of errors when I attempt to build from the project file with qt 5.1. The errors seem to relate to things that are no longer used for QT5 e.g. Q_PLUGIN_METADATA.
Touché. I think it's a 2 line code modification. I've commited a fix but I can't really test it right now, can you?
Sorry for the slow response..It builds successfully now with Qt 5.1.
