Set Background in Main Window only using QT

I am new to QT and am trying to set the background for the main window without the child widgets being affected.

I am using QT creator and the GUI and the way I have found so far is to right click on the form, Choose "change stylesheet" and set the background url.

However this affects all widgets on the form giving them the same background.

How do I avoid this?

you can try this

QPalette pal = a->palette();
pal.setColor(QPalette::Window, Qt::white);
myWindow->setPalette(pal);

Or you can also do it using Stylesheet in your code

MainWindow::MainWindow(QWidget *parent) : QWidget(parent), ui(new Ui::MainWindow)
{
    ui->setupUi(this);
    this->setStyleSheet("background-color: black;");
}


Let me know if you still unable to do it

My Mistake, My problem is that when I set a background image it propagates to all the widgets on the form
