Console window not coming up on MAC

Hello, I have an OF application that I have running on Visual Studio 2015. There are no add-ons and it runs fine. It has multiple source files (about 7) in the “src” directory. When I compile it on MAC under Xcode, it compiles with some of the usual QT warnings that I have seen before, and the application runs fine, but console window does not show on MAC. Does anyone know what I might be doing in my source (or not setting in the MAC project) that would cause this to happen ?

That’s the normal behavior on xcode.
if you run it from whithin xcode any console message will be show on xcodes console (the lower pane).
If you want to run the compiled app as standalone and want the console you need to run it from the terminal
