No Issues in my issues tab (QT Creator)
Brand new to QT Creator so I apologize in advance. I have setup QT Creator to work with Unreal Engine (probably not important) writing C++ code. It it all configured except I don't see any errors in my issues tab. If I intentionally write malformed code then I will get a "red bar" by the line number but I don't get any information in the issues tab. I would expect that to populate with a description of the error and maybe some suggestions.
I am using Ubuntu 16.04 and I am using QT Creator 4.0.2.
I am sure that I am being an idiot and I misconfigured something but any help would be much appreciated.
Also, as a follow up. I found a bug with a similar issue. (https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTCREATORBUG-17671).
Unfortunately I am using using Cmake 3.5.1. and this bug doesn't seem to apply to my environment?
cmake version 3.5.1
Hi , could you try a much newer cmake to see if it makes a difference?
Its mentioned "at least version 3.5 for Qt Creator 4.2"
But are you using older Creator ?
@mornindew: do you see the compile errors in the "compile output" tab? and are they black or red there?
@mrjj Thank you very much. I am actually using the most recent version that I can download.
I think that the Linux version is odd, is is actually 4.0.2 "based on 5.7.0" (whatever the hell that means).
@aha_1980 - Thank you very much. When I put in some bad code then the build will fail and it will show up at the compile output tab when I manually build.
Once I fix the issue then I can even build it and "make" it. It allows me to run the unreal editor and even set breakpoints. I just don't get any values in my issues tab.
It is making writing code much more difficult.
@mornindew you didn't answer the second part of my question: are the compile errors red or black in the "compile output"?
please post an example of an compile error.
Explanation: red output in the compile output (stderr) is scanned for words like "error" or "warning" and matches are shown in "issues"
