Menu and action not showing up in application



  • Env: Mac and Linux
    Qt version: 5.4.1 (Clang 6.0 (Apple), 64 bit)
    Built on Apr 22 2015 04:13:25
    From revision 6302a28c97

    I was working on the app. At one point (not sure how it happened), I added the 17th action in Designer named action_link and drug it to the toolbar in MainWindow.ui. When I ran the app, it didn't show. Then I added an Edit menu and drug the action to that menu. Neither the Edit menu nor the action showed up. Code completion for ui->action_link doesn't work and when I compile, I get a compiler error. The following is my .pro and Resource.qrc files. I can add the mainwindow.ui file, but it's pretty big now. Anybody see what's wrong in these files? Seems like one of the project, resource or gui files may be corrupt.

  • Here's the mainwindow.ui file. Sorry it's so big. Also, I cleaned, qmake'd and built several times.

    Running make clean, then qmake, then make from the command line works, but when I add new menu items from Designer, they don't show up until I repeat the clean, qmake and make again from the command line.
