I'm a newbie (not only with PyQT but also Python).  But I do have 
experience with M$ windows Visual FoxPro. So in the VFP world we use a 
MDI format for our programs.  I'd like to continue this practice.  So 
the question:

When I create a QMainWindow (my main window) I add my menu's etc...from 
my menu actions I want to open a window in the space below the menu.  
The type of window is the question.  Is the type of the new window also 
a QMainWindow (my child window)without menu's?  If this is correct - can 
the child window receive events from the main window menu/toolbar 
etc...  If not what is the correct type of window do I use? 

I know this may sound a little to simple but all the other GUI systems I 
have looked at used a different window type for child windows.
