Qt-creator/text-editor : Selectively dislikes gcc __attribute__((unused))

  • Using 2.7.0 :

    If, as part of a C program, I, for example :
    @void *data_collect(attribute((unused))void *arg){@
    Then the editor does not (and rightly) seem unhappy.
    If, as part of a C++ program, I, for example :
    @bool QT_0707a_MainWin::eventFilter(attribute((unused))QObject *obj,QEvent *event){@
    Then the editor underlines all this in red (as it would do for any big good old syntax error).
    Of course (and rightly), the code will compile fine.

    Can you test with the latest version of QtCreator ? If it's still not good you might consider creating a bug report for it
