How can I stop Qtcreator from overwriting my AndroidManifest.xml



  • Hi all,

    find ./ -iname "Android*" |grep anife in my project folder gives me
    ./build-otdroid-Android_for_armeabi_v7a_GCC_4_9_Qt_5_4_0-Debug/android-build/bin/AndroidManifest.xml.d
    ./build-otdroid-Android_for_armeabi_v7a_GCC_4_9_Qt_5_4_0-Debug/android-build/bin/AndroidManifest.xml
    ./build-otdroid-Android_for_armeabi_v7a_GCC_4_9_Qt_5_4_0-Debug/android-build/AndroidManifest.xml

    Even if I modify both AndroidManifest.xml in the same way, these modifications are overwrited during the next build.

    I don't find a create AndroidManifest.xml button in the project tab. I use Qt Creator 3.3.0 (opensource) on linux.

    TIA

  • @lanigb Open QtCreator >> open your project >> open "Projects" tab ( under "Debug" ) >> Scroll down here ( screenshot link ) and push "Create Template" button. =) Good Luck !

    Now you have your own "Android" folder. Put there everything what you want: Replace activity java files, add new java files, replace any android resources, etc.



  • Thansk a lot. I don't know how many times I saw this "create templates" button and told myself "it can't be this one".
    So stupid!
