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

AUTOUIC is a boolean specifying whether CMake will handle the Qt uic code generator automatically, i.e. without having to use the QT4_WRAP_UI() or QT5_WRAP_UI() macro. Currently Qt4 and Qt5 are supported.

When this property is ON, CMake will scan the source files at build time and invoke uic accordingly. If an #include statement like #include "ui_foo.h" is found in source.cpp, a foo.ui file is searched for first in the vicinity of source.cpp and afterwards in the optional AUTOUIC_SEARCH_PATHS of the target. uic is run on the foo.ui file to generate ui_foo.h in the directory <AUTOGEN_BUILD_DIR>/include, which is automatically added to the target’s INCLUDE_DIRECTORIES.

This property is initialized by the value of the CMAKE_AUTOUIC variable if it is set when a target is created.

Additional command line options for uic can be set via the AUTOUIC_OPTIONS source file property on the foo.ui file. The global property AUTOGEN_TARGETS_FOLDER can be used to group the autouic targets together in an IDE, e.g. in MSVS.

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

Source files can be excluded from AUTOUIC processing by enabling SKIP_AUTOUIC or the broader SKIP_AUTOGEN.

The number of parallel uic processes to start can be modified by setting AUTOGEN_PARALLEL.

A global autogen target that depends on all AUTOUIC generated <ORIGIN>_autogen targets in the project can be generated by enabling CMAKE_GLOBAL_AUTOGEN_TARGET.
