Adding files to your image
When you add files, you can either browse your host filesystem or select one or more
files from a list of search paths:
- Browse method
- If you choose files by browsing, you'll probably want to configure the
project to use an absolute path so that the IDE always finds the
exact file you specified (provided you keep the file in the same location).
Note that other users of your project would also have to reproduce your
setup in order for the IDE to locate files.
- Select method
- Select files from a preconfigured list of search locations. We recommend
that you use this option because it's more flexible and lets others easily
reproduce your project on their hosts. You can add search paths to the list.
Note that the IDE saves only the filename. When you build your
project, the IDE follows your search paths and uses the first file that
matches your specified filename. If you specify a file that isn't in the
search path, the build will be incomplete. To learn how to configure
your search paths, see the section

To add items to your image:
In the Images pane, right-click the image and select Add
Item, followed by the type of item you want to add:
- Shared Library
- Symbolic Link
- Inline File
Select an item (e.g. Binary) from the list.
Select either the Search using the project's search
paths or the Use selected absolute
path(s) option. (We recommend using search paths, because other
users will be able to recreate your project more easily.)
Click OK. The QNX System Builder adds the item to your
image, as you can see in the Images pane.
