Defining preprocessor macros in pro file
I defined many macros in pro file each of them in project file , (I am trying to implement Qt Assistant topic creating shared libs)
@ #include <QtCore/QtGlobal>
define MYSHAREDLIB_EXPORT Q_DECL_EXPORT
define MYSHAREDLIB_EXPORT Q_DECL_IMPORT
one of them always defines Q_DECL_IMPORT instead Q_DECL_EXPORT , I spent alot of time tracking the code, syntax, but in vain.
I don't if this help, but anyway.
In your .pro file you will have
@DEFINES += MYSHAREDLIB_LIBRARY@
this means that when you are compiling your program, whenever the compiler reads
it will replace with
and when you run your applicacion,
is not defined, so it will replace
sorry if it was not your doubt. i did not understand you question anyway.
thank you luisvaldes88 for reply
but the proposed way that macros are intended to work is:
in the same project
should be @Q_DECL_EXPORT@
out side the project
should be @Q_DECL_IMPORT@
I think it is qmake issue because of the dependencies between the libs , I noticed that the calling libs (which use the base) built first although the base lib qmaked first
