Nominate our 2022 Qt Champions!

Diectory or not among the files of a project

  • I am a beginner. I try projects with the aid of "Application Development with Qt Creator (second edition)". I also uploaded the files of the projects contained in the book. I am surprised that files contain Directories among them. Is it normal ?
    Of course Qt Creator does not behave the same manner with the existence or not of directories among the files.
    Thank you very much for your answer.

    Its not really clear what the folders are.
    In a project, u will often have the file and serveal yyy.cpp and yyy.h

    Its also ok to have sub folder and maybe keep images in there.

  • @mrjj Hi mrjj. Thank you for your reply. After some trials, 12 errors without using folders, 1 error using folders. For me, using folders, becomes more difficult. What files shall I put in a folder ??
    THe onlly one error I have now is:
    :-1: erreur : No rule to make target ../QtQuickCalculator/qtquick2applicationviewer.h', needed bymain.o'. Stop.
    Nevertheless I think the problem is solved. Folders are useful.
    I think it is you the person to tell the forum the "problem is solved". Thanks
