Instructions on how to use Frontpanel libraries on QT creator



I am trying to locate information on how add, compile and build Front panel libraries in QT creator. I tried using multiple kits (mingw-32 bit, msvc 2017 64 bit) and got multiple compile errors. I spent quite sometime trying to dig this information. The information online is sparse and not clear. I figured it would best to ask if someone has had any success on this forum. Any guidance or pointers would be truly appreciated.

Stackoverflow has some information but not enough to go on. It was an easy task to work with visual studio!

thanks in advance
