Property Documentation

cacheFilesInstallDir : string

The path to the directory where the cache files are installed.

If this property is set, QML cache files are automatically installed.

Default: Undefined


[read-only] cachingEnabled : bool

This property is true if generateCacheFiles is true and the platform supports QML cache generation.

Default: false


extraMetaTypesFiles : stringList

Specifies extra metatypes files to pass to the qmltyperegistrar tool via the --foreign-types option when registering QML types.

Note: This property is only needed for external libraries, not products or modules pulled via Depends items. In particular, you don't need to (and should not) use it to collect the metatypes files of Qt modules. These are found automatically. This property has no effect if importName is not set.

Default: Undefined

This property was introduced in Qbs 1.16.


generateCacheFiles : bool

Whether QML cache files are generated.

Default: false


importName : string

Setting this value triggers QML type registration via the qmltyperegistrar tool, which results in the creation of a file with the tag "qt.qml.types". The given string is the name under which the registered types can be imported by QML code that wants to use them.

Note: This functionality is only available with Qt 5.15 or later.

Default: Undefined

This property was introduced in Qbs 1.16.


importVersion : string

Specifies the version of the types to be registered. Values consist of a major and an optional minor number, separated by dots. This property has no effect if importName is not set.

Default: The product version

This property was introduced in Qbs 1.16.


qmlCacheGenPath : string

The absolute path to the qmlcachegen executable.

Default: Determined by setup-qt.


qmlImportScannerName : string

The base name of the QML import scanner.

Set this value if your system uses a name different from the default value.

Default: "qmlimportscanner"


qmlPath : string

The absolute path to the directory where Qt's QML files are installed.

Default: Determined by setup-qt.


typesFileName : string

Specifies the name of the file that declares the types registered for this product. For applications, the default value is <name>.qmltypes, where <name> is the product's target name. Otherwise, the default value is "plugins.qmltypes".

Note: The naming conventions are still in flux. When in doubt, consult the Qt documentation.

This property has no effect if importName is not set.

This property was introduced in Qbs 1.16.


typesInstallDir : string

The directory to install the qmltypes file into. If this property is empty or undefined, the file will not be installed. This property has no effect if importName is not set.
