Running linguist from external tools with arguments?

  • Hi there,

    in Qt-Creator we can add some more external Tools. By default the two linguist steps: lupdate and lrelease are implemented. I added a new one on which i call linguist, so that i can open Qt-Linguist directly from inside Qt-Creator. it works, but not completely as i want.

    I want to add all the ts-files from the project, which are included in the pro-file as arguments, like on the console, when i run the linguist command.

    I tried it with: %{CurrentProject:Translations} but this did not work. Linguist starts, but the ts-files will not be loaded.

    Is this possible like i want it and if yes, can someone help me to find the right argument i have to add?

  • no ideas?

    That's a question you can bring on the Qt Creator mailing list. You'll find there Qt Creator's developers/maintainers. This forum is more user oriented.

  • @SGaist thanks. I'll try it there.
