Project hierarchy with subfolders

  • hello!
    when I create new project, I don't have subfolders such as header, source and form folders for my project files. all my files are located at one folder (project folder).
    How can I change the organization of project files?

    this is part of my .pro file

    SOURCES += \
            album.cpp \
        pictures.cpp \
        databasemanager.cpp \
    HEADERS += \
            album.h \
            gallery-core_global.h \ 
        pictures.h \
        databasemanager.h \

    and this is screen shot of the project hierarchy:
    alt text

    thanks for help! :)

    @YoniBE You can put your files in subdirectories and edit the pro file to reflect these changes:

    SOURCES += \
            somedir/album.cpp \
        somedir/pictures.cpp \
        somedir/databasemanager.cpp \
    HEADERS += \
            someotherdir/album.h \
            someotherdir/gallery-core_global.h \ 
        someotherdir/pictures.h \
        someotherdir/databasemanager.h \

    to add to @jsulm

    if you include files from an other directory you'll have to adjust the include statement:

    #include "someotherdir/pictures.h"

    or add the directory to your Includepath in your *pro file

    INCLUDEPATH +=$$PWD/someotherdir

    Dosen't work..
    I create new folder at the project folder named "sources", then I added to pro file

    SOURCES += \
            sources/album.cpp \
        sources/pictures.cpp \
        sources/databasemanager.cpp \

    But I don't see any difference at the project hierarchy. I tried to create a new project and do the same but still I don't see any difference.
    I remember that once it was automatically... like in visual studio

    @YoniBE You should run qmake after editing pro file

  • @jsulm
    still, I don't see any differences.
    this is the output of the qmake

    11:35:33: Running steps for project untitled...

  • slove it.
    I changed the hierarchy view to file system view instead of project view and it worked.
