Hot to organize the project in diferent folders



  • I've done it before but after long years without using Qt, I no longer remember how to do it.
    How do I organize project files in separate folders? I want to create a directory division like MVC patern.
    Qt Creator doesn't do this, it keeps all files in the same directory.
    I remember that this involves some configuration in the .pro file for Qt Creator to display the folders created with their respective files.

    Models
        |___anyfileaboutmodel.cpp
        |___anyfileaboutmodel.hpp
    Views
        |___anyfileaboutview.cpp
        |___anyfileaboutview.hpp
    controls
        |___anyfileaboutcontrol.cpp
        |___anyfileaboutcontrol.hpp
    dal
        |___anyfileaboutdataacces.cpp
        |___anyfileaboutdataacces.hpp
    res
        |___anyresourcefile

    In that case, just create the folders in your project folder and in your .pro file:

    SOURCES += \
        $$PWD/controls/anyfileaboutcontol.cpp
    

    or alternatively you can add a .pri file per subfolder that you will include in your main .pro file.

    Hi,

    Do you mean you just want to have your classes in different sub folders or are these different sub projects ?

    As in this case it is a single executable, so it is the first option.
    I will need to create sub-projects too but this is another time.
    In addition to classes I also want to place resource files in a folder called res or resources.
