    Default Using embedded resources (icons) in Qt designer


    Using Qt designer under Eclipse, I am trying to assign an icon to a Tool Button which is done via the the resource manager (which crops up automatically). I know how to create a .qrc file and add my own icons to it, but how can I get to see the embedded Qt icons in there (like mentioned in your "Embedded resources" Wiki article)? Must I copy the ones I want to use from src/gui/styles/images to my project folder and then add them to my resources file? Surely, as they are supposedly already build in, I should be able to access them without doing this?

    Default Re: Using embedded resources (icons) in Qt designer

    Yes, you can, if you know the path to a particular item in the resource tree (which you need to check manually in Qt source tree).
    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.
