Changing the window title or hiding the window frame

I am wanting to change the title of the UI window and the icon. The values I put in designer don't pass thru to the UI window when it runs.

Note in the screenshot the title says "Qtvcp-Screen-hasb" also the icon is a basic icon. Not the one shown in the qt designer.
 

also I see in the qtdragon handler file there is a line that is commented out
#self.setWindowFlag(Qt.FramelessWindowHint)

if I uncomment this I get an error.
  File "/home/sboperator/linuxcnc/configs/Holloway_Sprayball_Machine/hasb_handler.py", line 56, in __init__
    self.setWindowFlag(Qt.FramelessWindowHint)
AttributeError: HandlerClass instance has no attribute 'setWindowFlag'

is there another way to just hide the window frame all together. This screen is set up to fill the screen of the operator panel. I don't really need the frame anyway.

Thanks,

Jim

loading with the -f switch creates full screen; no window frame.
DISPLAY = qtvcp -f qtdragon

If you look at the qtplasmac handler there’s example of how to set the window icon as well as the window title.  Lines 140 and 360 respectively:

the -f option works well. It puts the UI up on the wrong screen as I am developing. I have a second monitor. Makes working on a UI much easier since the UI is as big as the operators screen.

The .ini entry's don't seem to work. Turning off the -f option the title and the icon still show as in the original post.

Trying snowgoer540's options don't seem to work either. Same result.

Yep, 2.8.2. No big deal. I will run with the-f switch after I get done with development.
