Qt 5.5.0 moc: explicitly need to define QT_VERSION
I am creating a Qt plugin on Mac and using Qt 5.5.0.
This conforms to the standard way(s) of creating a Qt plugin.
When running moc on the plugin source, I do not get the expected
QT_MOC_EXPORT_PLUGIN(..., ...) /* name omitted */
line that should be generated by moc to create a plugin.
However if on the moc command I pass, -DQT_VERSION=0x050000, this line does get generated.
However on Windows it works as expected, and -DQT_VERSION=0x050000 is not needed.
Why is this difference in moc behaviour between Windows and Mac?
Shouldn't moc 'know' the Qt Version without being explicitly told?
Hi and welcome to devnet,
Are you running moc by hand ?
Its a Xcode project and moc (the version that is part of Qt 5.5.0) is called as part of the build phases.
The header comment on top of the generated moc file confirms that the Qt version is 5.5.0
Using the macx-xcode mkspec ?
