The problem is if you add a ui file with designer and want to integrate
it - e.g. a wizard or a dialog, you have to #include its header file
somewhere in the code of other cpp files.

-> even though the ui file is added in front of all sourcefiles in the
_SOURCES line, the  header and implementation file get generated after
all normal cpp file are compiled. -> we need to change am_edit or
whatever so that ui files get compiled first, at least all header files
get generated before any cpp file is compiled (when the headers are
there it´s equal which cpp file gets compiled first)

See the problem now ? Would be glad to know any solution. I thought
about having a look at some code in MAIN where designer files are
already used to see how to get around that. Or does this problem not
occur when you add an #include somewhere for a header that doesn´t exist
yet  and am_edit magically changes the compilation order ?

The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it. Oscar Wilde
