Summary0016103: AUTORCC will not regenerate qrc when a resource changes
DescriptionI am using CMake with Visual C++ (2010 & 2013) and Qt 5.4. My primary target has a qrc file listed as source. AUTOMOC, AUTORCC and AUTOUIC are ON.

When the qrc file itself is changed, rcc is called.
When a resource the qrc file links to is changed, rcc is not called.

As a result, CMake happily builds an executable with old resources, unless the qrc has been changed.

According to 0015074, this should work for some time now. It did not for me with CMake 3.2, which I was using until recently, nor with 3.5.2, which I have currently installed.
Steps To ReproduceRelevant portions of CMakeLists.txt:

find_package(Qt5Core REQUIRED)
set( my_sources ... my.qrc )
add_executable( my WIN32 ... ${my_sources} )

Example from my.qrc:

    <qresource prefix="/Bullets">
        <file alias="Blue">Resources/Tags/BulletBlue.png</file>

=> Change BulletBlue.png and qrc_my.cpp is NOT regenerated, nor recompiled.
Additional InformationRunning on Windows 10, currently with Visual C++ 2013, but the problem also happens on Windows 7 and with Visual C++ 2010.

I don't know if it has the same origin, but I discovered another issue. As a work-around, one would typically just rebuild all (i.e. clean + build), which should rebuild everything (and which I found as a workaround for issues like this with CMake, though typically with make clean && make all). However, it seems that the generated files are not cleaned from Visual Studio, including the qrc_*.cpp and the moc_*.cpp files. This means that not even with this workaround I get a rebuilt qrc, I have to manually remove the files before rebuild.

I did not seem to find a simple way to trigger regenerating the files.

This is only an issue while developing (i.e. when trying out different icons etc.) though, since our build server performs a clean checkout anyway.
