QtHelp include not found
I am getting an error when I @#include <QtHelp>@
error: @SomeFile.h:9: error: C1083: Cannot open include file: 'QtHelp': No such file or directory@
My .pro file does contain @QT += help@ and I have also verified the QtHelp4.dll, QtHelp4.lib files exist and the QtHelp include folder exists.
I have tried cleaning/rebuilding my project.
Check you qt include path, are /include/QtHelp/QtHelp file exists?
If yes try:
That works. Why is QtHelp not in the same path as QtCore, QtGui, etc... ?
Not a big deal now that its working for me but seems a bit strange.
Thanks again! :)

You should always use the module prefix and a specific element include.
#include <QtGui> // wrong, does include all gui elements
#include <QPushButton> // wrong, does not use module prefix
#include <QtGui/QPushButton> // right
In that line of thinking should #include <QtHelp> not include all help includes. I do not see this as a 'wrong' way of thinking, the only downside is potential longer compile times vs. a potential large number of #include statements.
Yes it should. The test feature is probably missing an INCLUDEPATH statement.
"-Potential- Definitly longer compile times" is the difference between a coffee-break build and an overnight build (in terms of time and cost). Of course it isn't technically "wrong" - but not everything that is "not that wrong" is necessarily right ;-)
Is QtHelp a test feature? Docs say it was introduce in v4.4.
No. By feature I mean qmake "configuration features":http://doc.qt.nokia.com/stable/qmake-advanced-usage.html#adding-new-configuration-features found in $QTDIR/mkspecs/features.
I took a quick look at it and it looks like that the test feature is called testlib, not test. So it is either QT += testlib or CONFIG += test.
However, do yourself a favor and do not use module wide includes like #include <QtTest>. It is a bad habit and it will strike back at you and you will end up in fixing it somewhen.
