Undefined reference to vtable. Trying to compile a Qt project


Question

I'm using Code::Blocks 8.02 and the mingw 5.1.6 compiler. I'm getting this error when I compile my Qt project:

C:\Documents and Settings\The Fuzz\Desktop\GUI\App_interface.cpp|33|undefined reference to `vtable for AddressBook'

File AddressBook.h:

 #ifndef ADDRESSBOOK_H
 #define ADDRESSBOOK_H

 #include <QWidget>

 class QLabel;
 class QLineEdit;
 class QTextEdit;

 class AddressBook : public QWidget
 {
     Q_OBJECT

 public:
     AddressBook(QWidget *parent = 0);

 private:
     QLineEdit *nameLine;
     QTextEdit *addressText;
 };

 #endif

File AddressBook.cpp:

#include <QtGui>
#include "addressbook.h"

AddressBook::AddressBook(QWidget *parent)
     : QWidget(parent)
{
    QLabel *nameLabel = new QLabel(tr("Name:"));
    nameLine = new QLineEdit;

    QLabel *addressLabel = new QLabel(tr("Address:"));
    addressText = new QTextEdit;

    QGridLayout *mainLayout = new QGridLayout;
    mainLayout->addWidget(nameLabel, 0, 0);
    mainLayout->addWidget(nameLine, 0, 1);
    mainLayout->addWidget(addressLabel, 1, 0, Qt::AlignTop);
    mainLayout->addWidget(addressText, 1, 1);

    setLayout(mainLayout);
    setWindowTitle(tr("Simple Address Book"));
}

Warning: Do not do this if you already have a .pro file - you'll lose it!

In order to automatically ensure that all moc cpp files are generated, you can get qmake to automatically generate a .pro file for you instead of writing one yourself.

Run

qmake -project

in the project directory, and qmake will scan your directory for all C++ headers and source files to generate moc cpp files for.

When using Qt Creator:

  1. Build → Run qmake
  2. Build → Rebuild All
