How to build the project Qt Designer from source code in Qt Creator?
Amry last edited by
I am quite new to Qt environment.
And would like to try out something.
What I want is to build the Qt Designer project in Qt Creator.
I have installed Qt Creator 3.0.0.
And I have downloaded qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.8.4.zip.
I started the Qt Creator and build the project, and opened qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.8.4/tools/designer/designer.pro
It parses without any error.
And when I start Run button,
I got this compile output:
In file included from ../../../designer/src/lib/uilib/abstractformbuilder.cpp:42:0:
../../../designer/src/lib/uilib/abstractformbuilder.h:51:29: fatal error: QtGui/QSizePolicy: No such file or directory
make: *** [abstractformbuilder.o] Error 1
I have found this file in qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.8.4/include/QtGui/QSizePolicy
I guess, it should add it. But I do not know why it is not finding it.
Any help will be appreciated.
If anyone knows different source code for Qt Designer where I can build in Qt Creator, would be also nice.
The main purpose for me, is to change/add some code to the source code of Qt Designer to fit my interest.
Thanks in advance.

You are trying to build the Qt 4 version of Designer against Qt 5. You need to either have a Qt 4 version set up and build against that or you check out the Qt 5 version of Designer etc. The best way for that is probably to build all of Qt 5 from source (including Qt Creator).
