Use new CMake QML API (Qt 6.2) in Qt Creator wizards

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      Qt 6.2 features a new CMake API to define projects using QML: qt_add_qml_module. We should support this new API in all Qt Quick wizards that support CMake.

      This is also an opportunity to greatly simplify the wizard content, by relying
      a) on Qt 6.2
      b) on a recent CMake version (suggestion: 3.16)

      Qt Quick Minimal Wizard

      When selecting a 'Qt Quick App - empty' the minimal supported Qt version' dialog should feature "Qt 6.2" (can replace "Qt 6"). When selecting this, the file template should look like the following:

      CMakeLists.txt
      cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 3.16)
      
      project(myapp VERSION 0.1 LANGUAGES CXX)
      
      set(CMAKE_AUTOMOC ON)
      set(CMAKE_CXX_STANDARD 17)
      set(CMAKE_CXX_STANDARD_REQUIRED ON)
      
      find_package(Qt6 6.2 COMPONENTS Quick REQUIRED)
      
      qt_add_executable(myapp
          main.cpp
      )
      
      qt_add_qml_module(myapp
          URI myapp
          VERSION 1.0
          QML_FILES main.qml
      )
      
      target_compile_definitions(myapp
          PRIVATE $<$<OR:$<CONFIG:Debug>,$<CONFIG:RelWithDebInfo>>:QT_QML_DEBUG>)
      target_link_libraries(myapp
          PRIVATE Qt6::Quick)
      
      main.cpp
      #include <QGuiApplication>
      #include <QQmlApplicationEngine>
      
      int main(int argc, char *argv[])
      {
          QGuiApplication app(argc, argv);
      
          QQmlApplicationEngine engine;
          const QUrl url(u"qrc:/myapp/main.qml"_qs);
          QObject::connect(&engine, &QQmlApplicationEngine::objectCreated,
                           &app, [url](QObject *obj, const QUrl &objUrl) {
              if (!obj && url == objUrl)
                  QCoreApplication::exit(-1);
          }, Qt::QueuedConnection);
          engine.load(url);
      
          return app.exec();
      }
      
      main.qml
      import QtQuick
      
      Window {
          width: 640
          height: 480
          visible: true
          title: qsTr("Hello World")
      }
      

      Other wizards should be handled similarly.
