I have 2 project files A and B. Project A depends on Project B which is configured as a static lib. I couldn't find the option to specify the linker's search path but I did find the project dependency option so I set project b as a dependency of project a thinking this will accomplish this. However, upon building project A I got an undefined reference error. I assume setting the dependency doesn't make the linker look for the object files of project b. If so what should I do to fix the error?
The information you provided are a bit sketchy :)
Without knowing what IDE you're using etc etc the best I can do is point you in the direction of qMake. Have a look at the LIBS and INCLUDEPATH
Hope that helps :)
I've added the project target into LIBS, added in the header search path into INCLUDEPATH and this solves the problem.
I apologize if the way I worded the problem comes out as rather ambiguous. I'm using the latest version of Qt Creator (of course). I am not aware of other ide that is tailored for Qt development which integrates well with qmake and moc.
No problem, some tools just allow you to add dependencies without having to modify the .pro file manually.
If this solved it for you, please mark the thread accordingly :)
