Gui app on Mac doesn't see my SQLite database, when launched by double-click on .app itself
Sorry for newbie questions, I'm not so familiar with deployment, but I don't know where to start.
So, when Qt compiles and runs my app, everything works fine, but when I try to double click on app file/package from Debug (or Release) folder - app doesn't see database (won't write or show it's content). The difference is: Qt is launching not app itself, but executable from app package (sqltablemodel3.app/Contents/MacOS/sqltablemodel3).
I tried to investigate, but found only some thread from 2010 with broken doc link. Also, I see official info for "The Mac Deployment Tool", but in Qt in Build menu I see some separate "Run without deployment" option. Does it mean, that deployment automatically runs by default?
Am I missing some step?
The deployment tool is a command line tool that you run your self.
( at least on windows)
I assume it will be the same on macOS
I'm just not sure I need deployment at this point, because I don't want to distribute my app. I just wanted it to launch by clicking on .app file.
I think I figured it out by searching again at this forum and reading through some more (not-Mac related) topics.
So, I fixed this by adding QCoreApplication::applicationDirPath() to the path of my database, so now it looks like this:
be carefull because QCoreApplication::applicationDirPath() return the location inside the app bundle, if you place your database at the same level that yourapplication.app it will doesnt work.
Ok, thank you for advice.
