[solved] QPushButton and setIcon doesn't work - icon is not showing up

  • (Visual 2012, Qt 5.2.1 - add-in)

    I have my class Button that inherits QPushButton. I create, using that class, a lot of buttons and I want to set icon to that buttons.
    Firstly, I wrote:


    Button::Button(const QString& name))
    QIcon buttonIcon(":Resources/btn.png");

    But that code doesn't work. Something is setting to that buttons because text is moving to the left but there is nothing visible (if I comment code that is responsible for setting icon, text is align to center).
    Any idea how to fix it?

  • :Resources/btn.png is a wrong path.
    What is in your resource file?

  • Like qxoz said, you most likely forgot the '/' before "Resources".

  • hmm.. but it still doesn't work.
    I tried couple of combinations with the same .png file and I add it to the resource.

    • I copied image to the resource folder in my project and I use relative path. - not working
    • I copied image to the resource folder in my project and I use full path - not working
    • I copied image on the desktop and I use full path - works.

    First method may not working because I have folders names with space (ie. "c:\users\me\documents\visual studio 2012\projects\project1...")
    Third method works, but I can't do it in that way.
    Second method - I have no idea why it doesn't work

  • Do you have a resource file (.qrc)?
    "Qt Resource System":http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-5/resources.html

  • Oh, sorry, my mistake. I didn't noticed that I have only .rc file (created by VS while creting project) not .qrc. Now it works.
