[Solved] Creator: How to use .pro file build settings?



  • I have a .pro file, which already specifies all the necessary build settings.

    In Qt Creator 2.8.0, how do I set up the project so that it uses exactly those settings?

    Disable shadow building in project settings.

    Or globally, change default build directory (in settings) to ".".

    That is a good feature. Did not know yet, That it actually made it into a creator release. An incentive to switch to a more recent creator version.

    Yep, it's in under Build & Run->General->Default build directory. I don't remember when it was integrated, I think QtC 2.7 already has it in. I'm usually either on newest release or a git checkout myself.

    I have checked the current creator in SDK has it. So it was definitely in version 2.7.2 . However, need to clear my other issues first.



  • The destination paths of my project depend on the values of environment variables. I have tried changing the environment in "project settings", but that doesn't seem to have an effect.

    Does Qt Creator re-parse the build-related settings in the .pro file, or does it just read the paths one when loading the project?

    Edit: Found it. Creator requires a pseudo-change to the .pro file

    Yep, when something like this does not work, it's best to clean, run qmake, and build again.
