Qt VS Add-in Integrated Help.



  • Hi to all here,

    i installed Qt Visual Studio Add-In, for use with VS 2010, by building Qt 4.8 from source. I used the instructions presented here:
    http://www.holoborodko.com/pavel/2011/02/01/how-to-compile-qt-4-7-with-visual-studio-2010/

    VS Qt Project Wizard, the debugger, all stuff it seems to be working without any problem. The only thing that i have noticed is that the Qt Help didn't get integrated with VS Help System (the Document Explorer). I know that i can manually run Qt Assistant and get help from there but is really convenient to press F1 within Visual Studio on something and get help on it.

    Qt VS Add-In claims that support "Integrated Qt documentation" so i must made something wrong.

    Can, please, anyone help me with this ?

    Thank you for any help!

    Welcome to devnet

    Do you see under "Help"->"Contents" something as "Qt Addin ...." and "Qt Reference Documentation..." ?



  • Hey,

    thanks for the (ultra)fast reply!

    The installation is on my work machine so i do not have access to it right now. But i remember perfectly the one you asked, because i specifically searched for: No, there are no such entries in the Help menu...

    I have installed the new vs add-in V1.1.10 the other day. However, I am using it msvc 2005 and have already upgraded a couple of times. I can find these entries in my help, but part of it is useless. The link to Qt classes is broken, I just found out.

    You may want to file a bug report on "JIRA":https://bugreports.qt.nokia.com/secure/Dashboard.jspa for your problem.



  • I just realize that i do not have to build from source and wait 4 hours to complete that task. I can just download the "Qt libraries 4.8.0 for Windows (VS 2010, 275 MB)", run it and then run the Qt Add In and all is set! Still though, no help-integration with Visual Studio...

    The download has been added lately. There might be a stumblestone with the target platform 32 or 64 bit. It is not obvious rightaway what are you downloading. I guess it is 32bit, isn't it?

    The installation of vsaddin is no brainer and nothing to observe while running it. I strongly suggest that you are filing a bugreport on "JIRA":https://bugreports.qt.nokia.com/secure/Dashboard.jspa for your problem. When nobody is reporting, there will be nobody paying attention to it.

    I was installing vsaddinright now on my another pc. During the installation proces the help integration is only listed for mcvs2005 and msvc2008. So, that is the reason you cannot see anything under msvc2010.



  • I repeat the install process (not source building) and indeed, there is not help-integration available for VS 2010 at the installer...So, i guess it's not a bug, just not available yet.

    I have a bug report for the broken links in msvc 2005 on "JIRA":https://bugreports.qt.nokia.com/browse/QTVSADDINBUG-107
    and have added a comment about missing help integration for msvc 2010.



  • Ok! I will watch that bug-report link to see what happens.
