QXmlStreamWriter write QString as it is

  • Hi!

    I want to write a string after an element similar with the function "QXmlStreamWriter::writeCharacters":https://qt-project.org/doc/qt-4.8/qxmlstreamwriter.html#writeCharacters
    But I don't want that it will change my string and replace characters like _ " _ with ". Can anybody tell me, how? I tried some functions but without any result.

    I need to write this:
    @ <reference>GEOGCS["WGS 84",DATUM["World Geodetic System 1984",SPHEROID["WGS 84",6378137,298.257223563,AUTHORITY["EPSG","7030"]],TOWGS84[0,0,0,0,0,0,0],AUTHORITY["EPSG","6326"]],PRIMEM["Greenwich",0,AUTHORITY["EPSG","8901"]],UNIT["degree",0.017453292519943,AUTHORITY["EPSG","9102"]],AUTHORITY["EPSG","4326"]]</reference>@

    Thank you in advance.

  • Moderators

    do you need the value string human readable in the XML file?
    If not an easy possibility would be to write the text base64 encoded:
    xmlStreamer.writeCharacters( QString("myText").toUtf8().toBase64() );
    Would that be enough for you?

  • I am copying a file format and they use it as I mentioned above, but it looks like, that it works also with the replacing characters.

    Thanks for the fast help!
