How can I make changes to the effective qmake call?
one of the samples shows the Effective make call but I need to change its contents (the contents of the make file...). Specifically I need to pass -std=c++14.
How is this done? Where the make file?
Hi! You can add
CONFIG += c++14to your *.pro file.
Ok, I added CONFIG += c++14 to my *.pro file, but now I am getting compiler errors like "/Users/juandent/Qt5.5.1/5.5/clang_64/lib/QtCore.framework/Headers/qstring.h:739: error: no type named 'u16string' in namespace 'std'
static inline QString fromStdU16String(const std::u16string &s);"
in code like:
#if defined(Q_COMPILER_UNICODE_STRINGS) || defined(Q_QDOC)
static inline QString fromStdU16String(const std::u16string &s);
inline std::u16string toStdU16String() const;
static inline QString fromStdU32String(const std::u32string &s);
inline std::u32string toStdU32String() const;
?? This does not occur if I use CONFIG += c++11
What is strange about this error is that even if I #include<string>, the compiler complains that u16string does not exist in std namespace...
which is false!!
Is something corrupt??
Are you running OS X ? What version of Qt ?
Qt Creator version 3.5.1 (open source) based on Qt 5.5.1 (Clang 6.0 (Apple), 64 bit).
OS X version 10.11.2
Also Qt 5.5.1 ? Or 5.6.0 Beta ?
Can you show your .pro file ?
Yes Qt 5.5.1
The .pro is:
TEMPLATE = app
INCLUDEPATH += .
HEADERS = bookdelegate.h bookwindow.h initdb.h
RESOURCES = books.qrc
SOURCES = bookdelegate.cpp main.cpp bookwindow.cpp
FORMS = bookwindow.ui
CONFIG += c11
CONFIG += c++14
QT += sql widgets widgets
target.path = $$[QT_INSTALL_EXAMPLES]/sql/books
INSTALLS += target
CONFIG(debug, debug|release):sqlPlugins.files = $$QT_BUILD_TREE/plugins/sqldrivers/d4.dll
CONFIG(release, debug|release):sqlPlugins.files = $$QT_BUILD_TREE/plugins/sqldrivers/[^d]4.dll
sqlPlugins.path = sqldrivers
DEPLOYMENT += sqlPlugins
It should be
CONFIG += c++11
Also check that you are using the clang mkspec
Yes with c++11 it works but I want to use c++14, and I know Xcode 7.2 supports c++14 ... since under the covers the compiler is doing the compiling, why can't I instruct it to work in C++ 14 mode?
What do you mean by clang mkspec? Where do I find that?
Thank you very much for your help so far!!
Go to Qt Creator's preferences and take a look at the Kit, you should see there the mkspec. If empty look at the Qt Version used for the Kit but AFAIK, it should be clang by default.
what about using C++14? -- is it not possible?
It should be yes. Usually only "CONFIG += c++14" should be enough.
Qt mkspec is empty but Qtversion is Qt 5.5.1 clang 64bit
?? Still have the problem
Hi Qt Champ!
I found the answer finally!!
The solution is: IN ORDER to use C++14 you must also enable C++11, like so:
That solves all the problems!!
Thanks for the help!
