Embed editable resources
I know how to embed and use read-only resources with Qt and Qt Quick using the qrc system.
What I now need is editable resources. I want to embed a resource at compile time and update it at runtime if necessary.
How can I do ? I am targeting Symbian.
You can't do that using the QRC system: Resources are put into a read only section of the binary, so they can not be changed. Even if that was possible: Do you really want to update your executable file on disk all the time?
I think the most straight forward way to do this is to store your data as files on disk. Symbian has the concept of a application private folder IIRC, so that would be a good place to store your data. Please read up on the security system of Symbian for more information on this.
Thanks, that's what I though.
I am looking into the DEPLOYMENT qmake variable right now :
It should do what I want for Symbian but is there an cross-platform way of doing this ?
Ok so this code works well on device :
@mydeployment.sources = myfolder/*
mydeployment.path = mydeploymentfolder
DEPLOYMENT += mydeployment@
QDir d(QApplication::applicationDirPath() + "/mydeploymentfolder");
qDebug() << d.exists() << d.entryList();
However, this is not working on Nokia SDK Simulator.
Any idea to make it work on Nokia SDK Simulator ?
