'Find usages' in QTCreator looks only in opened files ( bug ? )



  • Everytime I use 'Find usages' I get results from already opened files only. When I right click on some class, it stops to search actualy immediately giving me only those 'known' results. When clicking on some field, it looks like it does more stuff, cause it takes much longer - but the result is thesame. Is there something I might be doing wrong?
    I'm using it for non Qt C++ programming, actually for UnrealEngine 4 game. Everything exept that works great. Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    I'm using Qt Creator 4.1.1
    Based on Qt 5.8.0 (MSVC 2013, 32 bit)

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    You should check with a more recent version of Qt Creator, the current is 4.2.2 with 4.3 being around the corner.



  • Hey @SGaist , thanks for advice.
    I've updated to QT Creator 4.2.1 but it's thesame. Any other ideas? ;)

    Looks like it might be related to this bug report.



  • @SGaist hmmm, but this is like 4 years old... So ain't no plans to fix that?

    @Krzycho The status of the bug is "Need More Info". Maybe you can provide more info there, then the likelihood for a fix is higher.



  • It's stange you know @jsulm . I was strugling this for more then half year now, in a couple of different projects. I was trying to reproduce it by making some example project. In the time of making it, it started to work and now it works on the projects it wasn't working before too. I've got no idea what happened. I didn't make anything extraordynary.
