Generates a D-Bus interface from a header file.

Generates a D-Bus interface from a header file.

The command is defined in the DBus component of the Qt6 package. Load the package with:

find_package(Qt6 COMPONENTS DBus REQUIRED)


    [OPTIONS options]

If versionless commands are disabled, use qt6_generate_dbus_interface() instead. It supports the same set of arguments as this command.


Parses the C++ source or header file containing a QObject -derived class declaration and generates a file containing the D-BUS Introspection XML.

By default, the generated XML file is stored in the current binary directory, and has the same base name as the header. You can specify a different name or path by adding customName as an optional second argument.


The function sets up a call to the qdbuscpp2xml command line tool. Further arguments to the tool can be set after OPTIONS.
