What Qt Creator version to use for Qt 4.8.5 development?



  • I need to work on Qt 4.8.5 project created with QtQuick 1.1, and qmlproject file. I've tried Qt Creator 4.2.1 but it doesn't seem like the optimal version. (eg missing documentation help for Qt 4, don't have option to create Qt Quick 1.1 Application, etc) What would be the best Qt Creator version to use? And in general, what dev environment setup is ideal (tools, apps, versions, installation tips) I'll be using Ubuntu 16.04 for developing. I'm very new to Qt and QML so I've been banging my head alot. So any advice to help my soul would be greatly appreciated.



  • QtCreator is simply an IDE, meaning that it is not chained to any Qt lib version. If you're missing documentation, please ensure the info package has been installed on your machine.



  • Thank you for the reply. I've have Qt 4.8.5 manually added to "Qt Versions" in Build & Run Options. When I highlight a component and press F1, it shows Qt 5.6 docs. Also can Qt Creator able to type hint to specific version of Qt?



  • Did you install the help files for Qt 4.8.5?



  • How would I do that to Qt Creator 4.2.1? I can't find how to do that. I do see "docs" directories but seems that Qt 5 and Qt 4 docs structures are different.



  • AFAIK, it's up to you to install the help from your distro package list, QtCreator won't do is for you. Then, from the Tools->Options->Help menu you can see what is detected and used.

    In Qt Creator, click on Tools -> Options... -> Help -> Documentation. Do you see the Qt 4.8 docs listed?
