QML in C++ App error

  • I have difficulties with QML in a C++ app.

    I tried the tutorial for "Using QML in C++ Applications".
    I just copied the code:

    @#include <QApplication>
    #include <QtDeclarative/QDeclarativeView>
    #include <QtDeclarative/QDeclarativeContext>

    int main(int argc, char *argv[])
    QApplication app(argc, argv);

    QDeclarativeView view;
    QDeclarativeContext *context = view.rootContext();
    return app.exec&#40;&#41;;


    but I get some error messages:

    debug/main.o: In function Z5qMainiPPc': /main.cpp:9: undefined reference to_imp___ZN16QDeclarativeViewC1EP7QWidget'
    /main.cpp:10: undefined reference to _imp___ZN16QDeclarativeView11rootContextEv' /main.cpp:12: undefined reference to_imp___ZN19QDeclarativeContext18setContextPropertyERK7QStringRK8QVariant'

    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
    mingw32-make[ 1 ]: *** [debug\C++_QML.exe] Error 1
    mingw32-make: *** [debug] Error 2

    I use the Qt Creator 2.0.8 snapshot because in the Creator 2.0 I can't create QML projects.

    Do you have an idea what could cause this problem ?

  • Please check that you use Qt library with enabled Declarative and have QT += declarative in your .pro file

  • Oh thanks the "QT += declarative" statement was missing in my .pro file.

    I know this is a greenhorn mistake but sometime I'll get even this ; )
