Force linking when an external file changes

  • I need to link an external library to the Qt application (actually the lib IS the app). This library is developed externally, with another language.
    When I update the library I need to trick Qt Creator adding/removing a space from main.cpp to force it build the project.
    I imagine it is possible to add a dependency and force a link when an external lib changes....

    Can you help me ?

    This is what you are looking for:

    @PRE_TARGETDEPS += "/PATH/TO/LIBRARY/MyLibrary.lib"@
