Hi,

I am toying with cmake. It looks interesting, and much more flexibly then QMake. I have read: http://wiki.qtcentre.org/index.php?title=Compiling_Qt4_apps_with_CMake and
http://qtnode.net/wiki/Qt_with_cmake#cmake_for_Qt_4

I have a basic CMakeLists.txt and it does not want to generate the UI files. The output I get is:


elcuco@linux:~/src/svn/qtedit4/tools/qtsourceview/demos/demo1/build> cmake ../ && make

I am attaching here my CMakeLists.txt. Help will be appreciated.

I guess you missed that part:
# we need this to be able to include headers produced by uic in our code
# (CMAKE_BINARY_DIR holds a path to the build directory, while INCLUDE_DIRECTORIES() works just like INCLUDEPATH from qmake)
INCLUDE_DIRECTORIES( ${CMAKE_BINARY_DIR} )

I modified the include to this line (I am not building insource)


INCLUDE_DIRECTORIES ( ${QT_INCLUDE_DIR} ${CMAKE_BINARY_DIR} ../../src )


Now the code compiles. Wow... This was not that trivial to understand, but thanks for pointing it out once again!

That's why you had to add ${CMAKE_BINARY_DIR} to INCLUDE_DIRECTORIES, since all generated files will are stored in that directory.
