QT Charts problem

  • Hello everyone. I'm a QT newbie coding in c++. I want to use QT charts module, but i would like to use it from QT designer. Is it possible on 5.9.1? I have selected and installed QCharts and QDataVisualiation from maintenance tool, but I can't find the option to add QChartView to my gui in Designer window. A little googling revealed this. I did as accepted answer suggested, downloaded files and compiled them, but this time i get error "Cannot load library..." in "Tools -> Form Editor -> About Qt Designer Plugins". Is there any way to use designer to place and design graphs and charts?

    p.s: github link from the answer doesn't have a branch for 5.9.1, so i used 5.9.0 instead, would that be a problem?

    @Konur You probably need to build this plug-in using exact same compiler and Qt version which was used to build QtCreator. You can find out what was used in "Help/About QtCreator".

  • @jsulm Yeah it turns out my qt creator was build with MSVC 2015 32bit but i was building plugin with mingw. But installing whole mscv 2015 32 bit kit and than compiling plugin gave the exact same error. What do you think could be the problem?

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Might be a silly question but did you check the Qt version that was used to build Qt Creator i.e. that both are the same 5.9.X?

    Seems like 5.9.1 and i'm using qt 5.9.1 for desktop. Any ideas?
