Should the target be processed with autorcc (for Qt projects).

AUTORCC is a boolean specifying whether CMake will handle the Qt rcc code generator automatically, i.e. without having to use the QT4_ADD_RESOURCES() or QT5_ADD_RESOURCES() macro. Currently Qt4 and Qt5 are supported.

When this property is ON, CMake will handle .qrc files added as target sources at build time and invoke rcc accordingly. This property is initialized by the value of the CMAKE_AUTORCC variable if it is set when a target is created.

By default AUTORCC is processed inside a custom command. If the .qrc file is GENERATED though, a custom target is used instead.

Additional command line options for rcc can be set via the AUTORCC_OPTIONS source file property on the .qrc file.

The rcc executable will be detected automatically, but can be forced to a certain binary using the AUTORCC_EXECUTABLE property.

The global property AUTOGEN_TARGETS_FOLDER can be used to group the autorcc targets together in an IDE, e.g. in MSVS.

The global property AUTOGEN_SOURCE_GROUP can be used to group files generated by AUTORCC together in an IDE, e.g. in MSVS.

When there are multiple .qrc files with the same name, CMake will generate unspecified unique names for rcc. Therefore if Q_INIT_RESOURCE() or Q_CLEANUP_RESOURCE() need to be used the .qrc file name must be unique.

Source files can be excluded from AUTORCC processing by enabling SKIP_AUTORCC or the broader SKIP_AUTOGEN.

A global autorcc target that depends on all AUTORCC targets in the project can be generated by enabling CMAKE_GLOBAL_AUTORCC_TARGET.
