Qt Quick Application can't be created by Wizard of QtCreator v2.5.2 on Qt5
Does anyone create a "Qt Quick Application (Built-in-Elements)" successfully by Wizard on this development environment ? (Qt5, QtCreator v2.5.2) ?
The wizard will stop at second step : "No valid Qt versions found."
I check the Tools/Build & Run, the Qt Versions links ok with Qt 5.0.0, tool chains is fine.
I used the QtCreator v2.4.1 is ok combine with Qt5, although it needs some adjustment with .pro, .pri file.
Does anyone has try this case ?
If you want wizards, stick with 4.8 :) Qt5 is for hardcores :D Remember that Qt5 is not released yet.
And anyway, creating QML2 apps is very easy: include QQuickView, create QtGuiApplication instance, set source to your main QML file and you're done.
OK, I got your point.
Is there a version checking in Creator v2.5.2 to not to create the QML2 app by wizard if we use the Qt5? At least I saw some apart of source code on Creator to that.
Anyway, thanks : )
No, I don't think there is something like that there now. It will change, definitely, as Qt5 will get closer to an actual release.
QtC 2.5.2 does not recognize Qt5 headers, too. I recommend compiling the newest sources from git - there it works flawlessly (2.6 may have it, too, I haven't checked).
Currently the Qt Quick application wizard is creating Qt Quick 1 applications and will only do so for Qt versions 4.x.y. I was told that there is a patch for Qt Quick 2 in the work, but don't know when it will get commited.
From what I understand there are issues with the Qt Quick 1 and Qt Quick 2 wizard interfering with each other in the UI if both Qt 4 and Qt 5 libraries are available. We need to find a good way to present both wizards at the same time and to make sure to not confuse the user with which Qt versions are available where.
would imagine there is more interference between Qt Quick 1 between Qt4 and Qt5, since Quick 2 is entirely new. Maybe you should introduce a new option to differentiate between QML1 and 2?
Just a thought. I'm developing an already existing project, so wizards don't concern me too much currently.
Yes, having Qt Quick 1 and Qt Quick 2 wizards is definitely an option. But currently we have three Qt Quick 1 application wizards (for the different components), so we don't want to add yet more Qt Quick application wizards.
Having so many different wizards for something as simple as a "hello world" Qt Quick application just does not feel right.
