I've been using Application::instance()->setMenuEnabled() in C++, but it should work in QML too. The command above seems to be correct. Is it being ignored? 


You'll have to re-enable the menu when hiding the screen, for example in onPopTransitionEnded if using NavigationPane.

Re: Hide Application menu for a screen

I can confirm that using the OP's code in QML has always worked fine for me. If it's not in his case, it's something about when (or whether) that code is actually being executed which is the problem, not the line itself.

(Note that it is a global property though, so it won't handle "a particular screen" without separate logic related to tracking which screen is visible.)

Re: Hide Application menu for a screen

doing this in some cases without any problem from QML

as Zmey wrote, you can do this with NavigationPane:

if specific Page pushed, disable and if onPopTransitionEnded() for this Page, re-enable it

or on TabbedPane you have to check when active Tab changes
