Frequently Asked Questions
For the run command works correctly, you have to define the main file of your project in the 'Project -> settings' menu action.
From there select the main file then validate.
After that the 'Run' command should just works.
On Windows, applications have to be in the PATH environment variable so applications can be started without using absolute file path.
Monkey Studio offer an integrated environmeent variable editor which you can customize.
This does not tweak the system environment variable, and only Monkey Studio will use them.
You can customize these variables triggering the 'Edit -> Settings -> Environment variables' menu action.
Feel free to edit and extend the PATH variable, once done this should be immediatly working, if not try restarting Monkey Studio.
On Windows, it looks like Python has to be started using absolute file path so it works fine.
You can change the file path of the plugin going to the 'Plugins -> Cli Tools -> Python -> Configure' menu action.
In that dialog, click the button at the right of the command line edit and browse until you find pythonw.exe binary.
Save, and close the dialog then restart Monkey Studio.
Python interpreter should works fine.
If you need to extend the PATH environment variable to make some python available, let see http://monkeystudio.org/node/177.
Some widgets needs a central widget for being use correctly in Qt Designer.
It's the case for QMainWindow, QDockWidget and probably some others.
For these widgets, you need to activate the "central widget" property in the template wizard form.
By default the content is empty, but you should use the second item in the combobox to activate the central widget.
The Qt thing we use does not propose such api (unless we show all hidden files, which we want not).
To be able to show your volumes as a regular folder at root, please do this change to your /Volumes folder:
Open a terminal and type:
* xattr -d com.apple.FinderInfo /Volumes
Basically, this command remove the com.apple.FinderInfo attribute from the folder, which make it visible as a regular folder.
Restart Monkey Studio after the change.
Monkey Studio is a cross platform IDE written in Qt 4.
Its primary goal is to allow easy and powerful management of Qt based projects (C++/QMake, PHP-Qt, and all others bindings) but not limited to that, in fact MkS architecture based on plugins allow you to extend it in an infinite way.
