I'm using QTCreator with ROS Plugin and compilie my nodes with C++11 support. I get the following compiler warning when using e.g. ROS_DEBUG(). How can setup QTCreator to ignore this warning?

Warning: zero as null pointer constant
expanded from macro 'ROS_DEBUG'
expanded from macro 'ROS_LOG'
expanded from macro 'ROS_LOG_COND'
expanded from macro 'ROSCONSOLE_DEFINE_LOCATION'

In CMakeLists.txt:

Related: ros-industrial/ros_qtc_plugin#321.

How can setup QTCreator to ignore this warning?

I'm not sure whether you can do this globally, but you can suppress it per-file with:

#pragma clang diagnostic ignored "-Wzero-as-null-pointer-constant"

That's not very nice though as it now ignores those for everything, not just the macros.

It would appear this has already been addressed in ros/rosconsole#14. That has changed everything to use nullptr instead of 0, but that has only been released into Melodic, not Kinetic afaict (part of 1.13.8, but Kinetic only has 1.12.14).

Thanks! This makes it easier to focus on important :) warnings.
