How do I disable specific warnings in Qt Creator?



  • I recently started using QtCreator. I cannot find a definitive and complete answer to the question: how do I disable specific warnings in Qt? (For instance, I want to disable the warning: '/*' within block comment [-Wcomment].

    (I don't have the choice of fixing the code itself - it's legacy code).

    This topic....
    https://forum.qt.io/topic/93238/disabling-compiler-warnings-in-creator-editor
    ...is not conclusive for me. What is the right procedure? Should I do this in the .pro file with...

    QMAKE_CXXFLAGS += "something-something"

    ...or should I do it in a settings dialog somewhere? If so, which one, and how do I get to it?

    (Also, note that I am not familiar with terms like "-Wno-old-style-cast" - and assuming this is the right approach, where can I find a list of all the options?)

    Please keep in mind that I am new to Qt and so I don't automatically have all the contextual knowledge, so please be specific :)

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    As the other topic you link discusses, are you talking about the code model warnings or compiler warnings when building your code ?
