That's only a test program; the real application has a color swatch in the widget that gets clicked.

But the issue is the same (and this sample code is simpler): after interacting with the QWidgetAction inserted into a menu, how can I get the menu to go away?

Clicking in a normal action (menu item) dismisses the menu after emitting triggered().

I'd like the same behavior for my QWidgetAction, but it just sits there like a bump on a log whether it contains a button or a color swatch.
