[Solved] Icons disappear when ran application

  • I'll add this since many of the solutions I've found on the internet didn't solve the issue.

    The icons appeared on qtcreator's designer but not when the application was ran. The solution:

    Build -> run qmake

    qmake has to be ran so the icons are compiled and present. My scenario:

    • using a qrc file added by the qtcreator gui
    • on Windows
    • Action added throught the qtcreator's Designer and then added icon from resource

  • @quimnuss I don't know how to mark as solved, please do.

    I have added the [Solved] to your post. AFAIK you should have at least the rights to change/edit your own post.
