Context help in Qt Creator 2.6.2



  • I'm using Qt Creator 2.6.2 on a Ubuntu host to develop our embedded application. The context help functionality works wel...untill I enter a Sysroot path in the selected Kit. I wonder : what's the path Qt Creator is using to look up the help files ? In the "Qt Versions" section, I could see that there's a QT_INSTALL_DOCS parameter. However, the path specified in that parameter does not contain any docs... (/usr/local/MyQtVersion/doc). In fact, that folder even doesn't exist. On the other hand, there's the "Documentation" section that contains a number of registered documentations. Hoovering over the entries gives me another path (e.g. /usr/share/qt4/doc/qch/assistant.qch). This path indeed contains the .qch files.
    I think Qt Creator is using the sysroot path as a basis for the doc search path. But how is that path extended to the final destination path ?

    That is quite a deep question. I suggest you ask on qt-creator "Mailing List":http://lists.qt-project.org/mailman/listinfo.



  • Done... :-)

    Yep. I've seen it in my mailbox. You are quick :)

    Hopefully you'll get an answer there (a lot of Qt Creator developers are active there. Not so many visit the forum).
