How to add Qt Enterprise Charts as a plugin?

  • Hi,

    I downloaded Qt Enterprise Charts and built/installed them, and the examples are building okay. There are two things I still don't know how to do:

    1- how to add the Qt Chart designer to Qt Creator (I placed the dylib in the plugins/designer folder below the $$[QT_INSTALL_PREFIX] folder, and restarted Qt Creator but it does not realise there is anew designer)
    2- The help file for Qt Chart (qtcharts.qch) -- how do I install it in Qt Creator so that I have the help incorporated with the rest of the help in QtCreator?

    What QtCreator version do you use?
    With what Qt version did you built the plugin?
    Of course the Qt version QtCreator was built with needs to be equal or higher than the Qt version you built the plugin.

    Note: QtCreator's Qt version can be viewed in it's About dialog.

    For adding the qch file to QtCreator go to Tools > Options and open "Help". In ther go to the "Documentation" tab. Click "Add" and select the qch file.

  • HI,

    I built the QtChart framework with Qt5.5.1/5.5/clang_64/bin/qmake...

    and my QtCreator was built with Qt 5.5.1 (Clang 6.0 (Apple) 64 bit)...

    How do I install the plugin for QtCharts?
