createGUI is at the bottom of *App::initActions(), but I inserted the 
code above it.

> -------------------------------- 
>  zoomIn = new KAction( i18n( "Zoom in 10%" ), "viewmag+", 0, this, SLOT(slotZoomIn() ), actionCollection(), 0 );
 
>  zoomOut = new KAction( i18n(> "Zoom out 10%" ), "viewmag-", 0, this, SLOT(slotZoomOut() ), actionCollection(), 0 );
> 
>   viewMenu = new KActionMenu(i18n("&View"), actionCollection(),
> "view_menu");
 viewMenu->insert(zoomIn);
>   viewMenu->insert(zoomOut);

This is also done.  and it compiles quite nicely and does
absolutely nothing (that I can see)


What do you say that I should do with my XML file.  I use QDesigner (Qt 2.3.0)
and KDevelop 1.4

at least the project compiles again.

My project was initially created with the new project wizzard (KDE 2 Normal - Project).
The problem may be that I don't see where the 'Top' menubar is defined.  I suspect that I 
never get around to adding menu entries to THAT menubar.  The default KDE 2
project inserts a dozen or so 'KStdAction' in *App::initActions() but never defines the
MenuBar itself.  Obviously I don't know where to look or what to do.  I get the feeling that I 
missed someting here :-)

Any further advice for me?  Thank you for you efforts.
