qrc files are not always recompiled-in when changed


    • Type: Bug

    • Priority: P3: Somewhat important
    • Resolution: Duplicate
    • Affects Version/s: Qt Creator 2.0.0
    • Fix Version/s: None
    • Component/s: Quick / QML Support

      Fedora Linux X1


      When creating a hybrid QML/C++ project in creator, and placing the QML files in resources, you can change a QML file, save the file, click build or run, and then not get the updated file built into the executable (and therefore not used). This is a major impediment to developing a hybrid QML/C++ application using creator.

      The bug likely is in qmake, not qtcreator, but if it cannot be easily fixed in qmake the workaround in creator should be a lot easier since you know what/if qml files in the resources were changed. And it is important to be solved for creator somehow, because creator needs to deliver a good Qt Quick development experience.

      This is technically not a QML specific problem, it probably happens to all resources, but it has a major impact on QML development using creator. Also, QML is all that I tested it with.

      Note that my master build is from a week or two ago and I forgot when you branched, so I might have picked the wrong version.
