[SOLVED] Template wizard variables

  • I have a template to create some custom classes in qt creator. Here is a snippet:
    <file source="class.cpp" target="%ClassName%.%CppSourceSuffix%" openeditor="true" />
    <file source="class.h" target="%ClassName%.%CppHeaderSuffix%" openeditor="true" />

    <fieldpagetitle>Class parameters</fieldpagetitle>
        <field name="ClassName">
            <fieldcontrol class="QLineEdit" validator="^[a-zA-Z0-9_]+$" defaulttext="" />
            <fielddescription>Class name:</fielddescription>
        <field name="Namespace">
            <fieldcontrol class="QLineEdit" validator="^[a-zA-Z0-9_]+$" defaulttext="" />


    When I try to use this now instead of getting:
    FooClass.cpp and FooClass.h
    I get
    FooClass%.cpp% and FooClass%.h%

    If I drop the % at the end of the variable I then get

    I'm on qtcreator version 2.7.81, though I don't think that number ever changes. Master branch built May 27th.

  • Should be fixed in Version 2.7.82 (2.8.0 beta)
    tested it with one of my wizards and it worked well

  • Yup fixed in my 2.8.81 build.

    p.s. strange version numbers.

  • Badalas: It is not 2.8 anymore and not 2.9 yet... what else should we use?

    Betas tend to be in the 80s, release candidates tend to have patchlevels in the 90s.

  • Just noting that 2.7.82 is 2.8.0 beta. Does that mean 2.8.81 is 2.9.0 beta too?
