Yes i have seen this before

Then it would have been nice to mention that, as it was probably going to be the first things people would refer you to.

Hello Ajay,

I understand your feelings. I've already had the same problem before. There is an IDE based on QT Creator that was built to ROS developers using C++. The ROS Wiki also suggests it here. The most important thing is that IDE has an awesome documentation and the steps are pretty easy. After all, you'll have ROS node debugging working. The IDE's documentation you can find here.

Waiting for your reply.

Best regards.

Hello Ajay! Since I replied to your question I've been using the QT Creator along with the ROS plugin. Some months ago the ROS Industrial released a new version and is working much better now. Do you have some specific question about its use, some example of code? Looking forward to hearing from you
