Trouble with .ini settings file



  • I have ab .ini file structured like this:

    [theme]
    background=#000000
    text=#87ca00
    border=#87ca00
    slider=#ffff7f

    I need to retrieve the value of each key. This is my attempt

        settings = new QSettings(QDir::currentPath() + "/config.ini", QSettings::IniFormat);
        settings->beginGroup("theme");
        QStringList keys = settings->childKeys();
        for (int i=0; i < keys.size(); i++) {
            QString value = "theme/";
            value.append(keys.at(i));
            qDebug() << "key" << keys.at(i) << settings->value(value).toString();
        }
        settings->endGroup();
    

    The output is

    key "background" ""
    key "border" ""
    key "slider" ""
    key "text" ""

    As you can see, the text corresponding to the key value is empty.
    Where am I doing wrong?

    @UnitScan said in Trouble with .ini settings file:

    QString value = "theme/";

    You already called beginGroup() within this.



  • Very well, thank you!
