Creates an RCC file from a list of Qt resource files.

The command is defined in the Core component of the Qt6 package, which can be loaded like so:

find_package(Qt6 REQUIRED COMPONENTS Core)

This command was introduced in Qt 5.10.


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

If versionless commands are disabled, use qt6_add_binary_resources() instead. It supports the same set of arguments as this command.


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


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.


qt_add_binary_resources(resources project.qrc OPTIONS -no-compress)
