QT Beautifier plugin With Artistic Style refuses to function 'Error in Beautifier ... "AStyle.exe" terminated with exit code 1'
Hello, I'm trying to use the QT Beautifier plugin on Windows 10 with Artistic Style.
I downloaded Artistic style, enabled the Beautifier plugin, set the Beautifier general tool to Artistic Style, set a keyboard short cut and created a custom configuration file.
in tools>options>beautifier>artisticstyle I set the Artistic Style Command to:
I can even go into that directory and type
Astyle.exe --versionand the following will come up:
Artistic Style Version 3.0
So I'm not sure what the problem is.
At the time of writing this I found out what the problem was, so I will reply with the solution so others do not have the same issue.
The following was my configuration.
--style=allman --indent=spaces=4 --indent-classes --indent-switches --indent-labels --indent-preproc-block --indent-preproc-define --indent-col1-comments --max-continuation-indent --pad-oper --pad-comma --pad-header --align-pointer=type --align-reference=type --break-one-line-headers --add-braces --close-templates --max-code-length=80
At first it may appear as if nothing was wrong, but
--max-continuation-indentneeds to have a value, changing it to
--max-continuation-indent=40worked. It appears that if the Artistic Style style config file does not have proper syntax QT does not notify the user.
To debug this I took a command I knew would work and tried it again, it worked fine.
