    Default Removing the unused plugins in the .pro file

    Hi all,

    I'm using a static build of QT library.
    I have a pro file where no plugins specified for the QTPLUGIN variable.
    When i generate project file with qmake -tp vc there is .cpp file generated with Q_IMPORT_PLUGIN macroses.
    There are the following plugins:

    Qt Code:
    1. #include <QtPlugin>
    2. Q_IMPORT_PLUGIN(AccessibleFactory)
    3. Q_IMPORT_PLUGIN(QMinimalIntegrationPlugin)
    7. Q_IMPORT_PLUGIN(QJp2Plugin)
    8. Q_IMPORT_PLUGIN(QMngPlugin)
    9. Q_IMPORT_PLUGIN(QTgaPlugin)
    10. Q_IMPORT_PLUGIN(QTiffPlugin)
    11. Q_IMPORT_PLUGIN(QWbmpPlugin)
    12. Q_IMPORT_PLUGIN(QWebpPlugin)
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    I don't need image plugins so i want to remove them and it is better for me to specify the particular plugins in .pro file.
    According to documentation it is a default plugins set.
    When i try to disable it using QTPLUGIN.platforms = - the list remains the same.
    QTPLUGIN.platforms = qminimal also doesn't change anything.
    Maybe there is QT_PLUGIN_CLASS.<plugin> variable which responsible for that but i didn't found any description for that variable.

    SO how could i remove particular plugins from the list?

    Delete their entries from the cpp file. You are not going to call qmake with "-tp vc" param again so the list will not be regenerated.
    Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is futile.

    Please ask Qt related questions on the forum and not using private messages or visitor messages.
