qt_add_binary_resources(target file1.qrc [file2.qrc ...]
                        [DESTINATION ...]
                        [OPTIONS ...])


Adds a custom target that compiles Qt resource files into a binary .rcc file.

This command was introduced in Qt 5.15. You can use qt5_add_binary_resources in older versions of Qt.


DESTINATION sets the path of the generated .rcc file. The default is ${CMAKE_CURRENT_BINARY_DIR}/${target}.rcc.

You can set additional OPTIONS that should be added to the rcc calls. You can find possible options in the rcc documentation.
