Possibility to configure a script filepath in Qtcreator options and read it in plugin code
Veepee last edited by
I have a Qt creator plugin written where a perl script is called to perform the required functionality. The perl script is located in a specific path in my linux machine and there is a parameter passed to it. Currently I am invoking this perl script with the hardcoded path and parameter directly from my plugin. Whenever there is a change in the path or parameter of the perl script, my plugin code also got to be changed.
Is there a possibility where I can configure the perl script path in some Tools-options of Qtcreator and read this path directly from plugin ? This will ensure plugin code remains untouched for any changes in perl script.
As far as I know, there is not.
But it seems possible to give a plugin command line parameters
(Command Line Arguments)
So you can start Creator with a shortcut with file path as param and
it can be dynamic that way, i think.
(it should pass the param to the plugin)
