      Description

      Hitting F1 to see Qt's Help about a type is extremely useful. Thing is, it wont trigger unless the code is correct.

      Stupid example:

      • Your code does not #include <QMap>
      • You know QMap has something interesting
      • Type Qmap, hit F1, nothing is shown
      • Fix it to QMap, hit F1, nothing is shown
        ...
      • Get to google find it there

      Is incorrect because QMap needs #include <QMap> first, but how could you know, you are requesting help to know about it.

      Obviously there are more elaborated examples.

      Solution:
      Keep QtC aware of at least all Qt types to bring help.
