    Default Best way of creating a library in qt

    Hi, I am currently developing a library of headers to be used by other qt projects. I am thinking of the best way to implement it.

    I created a .pro file that will be the library, for example:

    MyLibrary.pro

    ..in my Include folder are the following:
    1) ProductAHeaders
    2) ProductBHeaders

    both holders contains the same header file names but its content varies since they are different products.

    to put it simply I will be offering an API that will give the desired headers and parameters depending on the type of product (either ProductA or Product B)

    ..should I use a shared library , dynamic or static library.

    a shared library IS a dynamic library. If you make a static lib, then you have to compile your other app with the library every time.
    If you have a problem, CUT and PASTE your code. Do not retype or simplify it. Give a COMPLETE and COMPILABLE example of your problem. Otherwise we are all guessing the problem from a fabrication where relevant details are often missing.
