How to use Qt creator with source built qt

  • i am new to qt and i have build qt from source from this link:

    after running the designer i realised that i am unable to access other files of qt project apart from ui file.
    can anyone tell me what to do to make a complete project with .pro,cpp and other files.

    Qt Designer is included in Qt sources and works only for UI files. Qt Creator (the IDE) is a separate application and a separate project. You need to install or compile it first, for example from

    Once you have Qt Creator installer, you need to open the settings, add your Qt Version, then add a so called Kit (which is Qt Version + compiler bundle), and then you are ready to go.

    If you want to avoid all that hassle, use the Qt installer from the link above - it will install Qt, Qt Creator, and set everything up for you, completely automatically.
