Creator: Handling 1 header : n source files

  • As soon as I split the implementation in such a way that the declarations within one header file are defined in multiple different cpp files, Creator gets a bit confused.

    Something like this:

    Declarations: myclass.h
    Definitions for base methods: myclass.cpp
    Definitions for I/O methods: myclass_io.cpp
    Definitions for test methods: myclass_test.cpp

    Is there a way to tell Creator which files belong together, so that e.g. I can press "F4" in any of the cpp files, and get to the header file?

  • You can't make F4 work like that. However, F2 should switch between the declaration and the relevant definition without issue.
