Problem debugging shared and static libs in QT Creator
I have a couple of libraries and I cant seem to get the debugger to step into them or set break points!
I have just started with QT Creator and as a first step I created three simple projects
- A static library with some simple test methods such as - int AddValues(int val1, int val2)
- A shared library with some simple methods
- A console application to load and test the above libraries.
It all built OK and the console application runs and exercises the libraries correctly. I.e I get the right results.
- I cannot set break points in the libraries
- I cannot step into them (F11).
I am running on Ubunto 12.10 and I downloaded QT creator from the Ubuntu Software center
Hi and welcome to DevNet,
Do you build your software in debug mode ?
Yes all three projects are built in debug. I should have mentioned that QT creator is version 2.5.2
Are the tree projects separated ? Or is it one that builds the tree different pieces ?
As a side note it's Qt, QT stands for Apple QuickTime :)
They are 3 seperate progect within one session.
I have set each project up so that they all have the same target directory for the binaries.
ie DESTDIR = ../bin
for all three
Does the Debugger log window show anything ?
Yes it shows me quite a bit! But I would say there are no obvious error/warning message there.
Is there something specifically I should be looking for?
Red face time!
I thought I was building the two libs in debug mode but when I dug a bit deeper into the build setting I see it was only the test app that was in debug. I have now rebuilt the two libs in debug and success!. I can set and hit break points in them and step into them with the F11 key.
Thanks for your help
