Visual Studio Add-in Linking (Qt4 Designer Plugin) to (Qt Application)
Sharpie last edited by
I am currently building my first Qt4 application using the Visual Studio Add-in.
I have created two Qt4 projects:
qtTesting (Qt Application)
customWidget (Qt4 Designer Plugin)
I want to be able to compile customWidget and place the widget onto my qtTesting project using qtDesigner; where it will respectively load the correctly dll (debug or release) for the widget when loading the Qt Application.
Is this possible?
I currently have the customWidget but I have to manually place the widget into QTDir/plugins/designer (and it only accepts the release build); this means every time I modify the widget I must manually copy the new release build into the folder.
There must be a better way!

You might want to try to add the following snippet to your .pro file
INSTALLS += target
target.path = $$[QT_INSTALL_PLUGINS]/designer
I don't know whether that works on windows with the VS addin too, as I use it on a unix environment only.
