Assign filters. Optional, but useful.

source_group("Form Files" FILES ${UI} )
source_group("Resource Files" FILES ${RCC} )

Tell cmake the project "application"'s source files include all generated files and required libaries.

target_link_libraries(application  ${QT_LIBRARIES} QVTK ) # QVTK is for VTK 5.x. For VTK 6, use ${VTK_LIBRARIES} instead

In MSVC, WIN32 and $(QT_QTMAIN_LIBRARY} are required to remove dummy console window, as follows:
