[SOLVED] Automatically increment a build number
I need to display the version of the software I am building. It will have the following nomenclature: majorVersion.MinorVersion.BuildNumber
Any ideas on how I can increment a build number each time I build and how I can access this value from the program at run time?
I ended up adding these lines to the .pro file:
QMAKE_EXTRA_TARGETS += buildNo
buildNo.commands = ./buildNoScript
PRE_TARGETDEPS += buildNo # adding this removes the necessity to use .target
Then I made a simple script called buildNoScript that calls a small program that updates build info in a file (it reads the build no from that file first then increments it and writes it back).
