qt5_add_resources(<VAR> file1.qrc [file2.qrc ...]
                  [OPTIONS ...])


Creates source code from Qt resource files using the Resource Compiler (rcc). Paths to the generated source files are added to <VAR>.

Note: This is a low-level macro. See the CMake AUTORCC Documentation for a more convenient way to let Qt resource files be processed with rcc. For embedding bigger resources, see qt5_add_big_resources.


You can set additional OPTIONS that should be added to the rcc calls. You can find possible options in the rcc documentation.
