[PyQt] Create QMenus in different files

Hi All

I just started out with pyQt5 but I have experience with Qt and C++.

I try to separate my code in different files for not getting files that 
are too long. Therefor I am looking to a way that I can create the 
different QMenus (so 'file', 'edit', 'Help', etc) in separate files. I 
tried several things

  * subclassing QMenu and then create in the main GUI part an instance
    that I add to the QMenuBar

  * create a function in a different file that returns a QMenu that I
    add to the QMenuBar

but both methods didn't show the added menu in my menubar.

The first method had as problem that the derived class was not a QMenu, 
so could not be added.

I tried second methods since in the documentation of QMenuBar I found:

QMenu /menu/)

So it should be possible to add a QMenu (second method).

Does someone has such an example?

Tx for your help
