External resource in pro file



  • How can I add external resource in file? For example in pro file I have:
    @
    RESOURCES = application.qrc
    @
    Then a resource will be build-in application, but I want to use an external resource. So my problem is:
    How add resource to pro file that making a project will generate a application.rcc and copy it to binary folder? Then I would use this resource by code:
    @
    QResource::registerResource("/path/to/my/app/application.rcc");
    @

    Sorry for my eng.



  • You can add the generation in a QMAKE_POST_LINK step. Or put the rcc call and the copy step into a script and add this as QMAKE_POST_LINK.



  • Thanx for reply. You confirm my idea to create a script which will run rcc and copy resource to folder with application binary. I made a prototype script in python.
