Including header files

So I have been stuck on this for quite some time. I am trying to include header files from an external library, and I get the error, Fatal error: whatever.h: No such file or directory.

 

I have included the path to the header files in my "Paths and Symbols" under project properties, yet no luck.

I can't include them in the config.pri because it is automatically generated now and gets erased when built.

 

I don't know how else to approach this, please help!

Re: Including header files

You need to configure your library right. The easiest way to do this is right clicking on your project, Configure, Add Library. Just follow the wizard and make sure to follow the cheat sheet instructions at the end.

Re: Including header files

Hm, I tried that however it asks me for the "device library". What do I choose for that one?

Re: Including header files

Which library are you adding? My guess is that the library you're using isn't built for the ARM platform the BB10 devices are using.

Re: Including header files
