NetBeans and Qt
1.) I tried compiling a Win32 app that I have been working on using MinGW-64bit and NetBeans using the tool chain that came Qt 5.3.1 for Windows 32-bit (MinGW 4.8.2, OpenGL, 735 MB). I did change the architecture to 32-bit, but even though the program compiled, I did not get the window to display. Only a console window popped up. Is there a limitation to the MinGW in Qt to not use Win32 API?
2.) Is there a tutorial about how to use Qt in NetBeans 8? I mean, NB8 already have a C++ project template for Qt.
No, there are no such problems in Netbeans. It can use the compiler provided by Qt (32-bit) just fine. I am assuming that you are building a Win32 GUI application. Do you see a -Wl,--subsystem,windows in the build output windows in the linking step? Netbeans may have assumed a Console application by default ??
Have not used Netbeans 8 for Qt yet. But I did notice a problem using Netbeans 7 with Qt 5.x. Qt 5.x needs a QT += widgets in the .pro file. Netbeans 7 build automatically re-generates pro file and there is NO MEANS of specifying this option. So GUI programs did not build correctly! No such issues using Netbeans with QT 4.x
