How to create debugging helpers on Windows
I'm using QtCreator to contribute to the Godot Engine project, however because this project defines its own container types (Vector, List, HashMap etc) it's impossible to see what's in them.
I found it was possible to write cross-platform debugging helpers in Python as described here: http://doc.qt.io/qtcreator/creator-debugging-helpers.html
And I wrote this first test code for the Vector<T> type:
# Just for testing, kind of hello world def qdump__Vector(d, value): d.putItemCount(42)
However, nothing works for me so far.
I tried setting up the "Extra Debugging Helpers" in GDB, nothing happened (I didn't see any option in CDB, though the doc says it's supported).
I tried putting my helpers Python file in
Qt\Tools\QtCreator\share\qtcreator\debugger, nothing happened.
I even tried modifying an existing file;
creatortypes.pyto add my code, nothing happened either.
I don't even know if an error occurred.
I'm lost about how to set this up and develop my helpers. Anyone knows how I should proceed to get started?
I'm using QtCreator 4.0.3 on Windows.
@Zylann I think you should ask on QtCreator developers mailing list as those developers there should know better how to write plug-ins.
What is the mainling list? I had a look at http://lists.qt-project.org/ but it looks like it's down.
It's this one: http://lists.qt-project.org/pipermail/qt-creator/
