will there be a version of qt_build in Jade? Or how do I replace it?

Greetings, Stephan


Thanks for the solutions. I actually didn't made it work with Qt5, because of some changes in namespaces between Qt4 and Qt5. So my solution is based on CMake's Documentation about Qt4. This is probably quite similar to you answer, so I marked it as a solution.

Thanks for your help!

if you use CMake 2.8.11 or newer (allowed in Jade and I think also Indigo) it gets even easier: http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/cmake-manual.html

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.8.11)


# Find includes in corresponding build directories
# Instruct CMake to run moc automatically when needed.

# Find the QtWidgets library

# Tell CMake to create the helloworld executable
add_executable(helloworld WIN32 main.cpp)

# Use the Widgets module from Qt 5.
target_link_libraries(helloworld Qt5::Widgets)

if you replace every 5 by a 4 you will get it build against qt4. Mixing is not allowed for the same target but inside the same CMakeLists.txt is ok
