    Default How do I make qmake install custom widget into integrated designer plugin directory?

    I have built a custom widget. I can manually copy it to the Qt Creator bin directory for the integrated designer, and it works as expected (VS 2015, 32-bit, it works fine). My install step copies the DLL to the stand alone designer plugin directory. I have:

    target.path = $$[QT_INSTALL_PLUGINS]/designer
    INSTALLS += target

    in my .pro file.

    Is there a way to specify installation into the integrated designer plugin folder? I know I can specify any path I want in target.path, I guess the question is what QMake/Creator variables would get me to the right directory?

    Thanks.

    Not sure what you mean by "integrated designer plugin folder". That's what QT_INSTALL_PLUGINS is...
    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.
