  1. Make the QDialog as big as the screen.

  2. Make the backmost widget in the QDIalog as big as the screen,
       fill it with black, and set it (say) 50% transparent.

  3. Put the real dialog on top of that.

  When the dialog is on display, the stuff in other windows should
  show through, but dimly.

Hi pritam,
I am afraid that u can not achieve similar result with QWS. Since QWS is only a minimal windows system , you can't expect too much of it.

I have an embedded device with qt. I run my applications with QWS in full screen mode.
When I show QDialog on this application, the rest of the application should dim out. I dont want to
write that code in application because on desktop systems this kind of effect is generally already provided by
 window managers. Can I achieve something similar with QWS.
