First of all, because you said this is a problem with Qt Creator: does it 
happen without Qt Creator too? That is, does it happen if you just run qmake 
on the command-line? You can test it too by trying to build inside Qt Creator.

If you only see squiggly lines under that and/or Qt Creator parsing errors, 
the problem is something else.
