Buid method makefile grayed
« on: June 28, 2007, 11:29:51 am »

I'm trying Code Blocks (svn 4185) on Linux and I would like to use a custom Makefile to build a project. So I've enabled the option "It's a custom makefile" in the project settings. But the list "Build method" in the Compiler settings, Other tab, is grayed.

What's the problem ?

Thanks in advance,

C::B currently doesn't support another way of directly compiling a project beyond invoking the compiler directly -- but that doesn't matter, because you've chosen in your project not to have C::B compile it. (Instead, C::B will merely invoke make on your Makefile.)

Also, remember that the Global compiler settings are settings that will apply to all projects you open with C::B; forcing all projects to either use a custom makefile or not use one would be silly. - TDM-GCC compiler suite for Windows (GCC 5.1.0 2015-06-28, 32/64-bit, no extra DLLs)
