[SOLVED] Use qrc file from CMake
I use CMake to organise my project. And I have some resource files (qml, png) within my application.
I want to avoid to list resource files twice: in CMakeLists.txt and qrc file, therefore:
- Added all resource files to qrc file
- Wrote a cmake macro to parse the qrc file to see all resource files in QtCreator too
So please comment what you think about this approach.
Why not use
Possible I miss this aspect in my initial post, but do you see the files used in myresources.qrc in QtCreator's Project view? I do not. So I have to navigate through myresources.qrc. Not very handy from my point of view.
I'm not sure I'm following you correctly. Do you mean see the files themselves or the qrc file ?
I want to see both, myresources.qrc file and all files listed in it.
But in the meantime I implemented another approach:
List all the resources in a CMakeLists.txt and during build the myresources.qrc is generated and used as input for rcc tool.
AFAIK, even with qmake you would need to add the files as OTHER_FILES if you want to have them shown both separately
