Project Management : Taking a directory location
In IntelliJ we have Edit Configuration inside the
Runwhere we can add key value pairs, which can be used in projects. Mostly used to specify a certain directory folder.
So in Qt is there any way that we can specify something like this in the Qt IDE (build setting or something) and then access it through our code?
Its a bit unclear what you want.
But yes, you can add to the .pro file and read in the app.
like i do
so i know where the project folder is and read the gfx from there so i dont have to
copy all to build folder.
then in .cpp i do
const char* ProducerLocation = STR(PROJECT_LOCATION);
so yes u can make defines and use.
Hi, Thanks for the answer.
What I basically want is there is a folder (let's call dummyFolder) used in the project to save the output files, that is there in everyone's system.
But the dummyFolder location is different for different people but we need this dummyFolder path in the project.
So if there is a way where anyone can modify it in some setting of the project instead of changing the path in the code.
Why not reading the command line of the app,
of if not possible read the Environment-Variables of the system
to find the location of dummyFolder ?
From your example it sounds like you should rather use QStandardPaths.
Hi is this the dummy folder?
MOC_DIR = build
RCC_DIR = build
OBJECTS_DIR = build
for me is this the a dir resrved to compiler.. :-)
the most important to me is the bash_profie. file..
