QGuiApplication & QXmlQuery problems on qt5

  • I'm trying to use QtXmlPatterns module in order to parse an XML file. Unfortunately using Qt5.1 on MacOsX 10.7&10.8 I found a problem I have not with Qt4.8.5.

    @#include <QCoreApplication>
    #include <QGuiApplication>
    #include <QXmlQuery>
    #include <QStringList>
    #include <QDebug>

    int main(int argc, char *argv[])
    //QGuiApplication a(argc, argv);
    QCoreApplication a(argc, argv);
    QXmlQuery qry;
    QStringList lst;
    qDebug() << lst;
    return 0;

    this is the .pro I'm using.

    @QT += core gui xmlpatterns
    TARGET = Test
    TEMPLATE = app
    CONFIG -= app_bundle
    SOURCES += main.cpp@

    If I run a QCoreApplication everything works properly, instead if I switch on QGuiApplication (or a QApplication) this small program hangs forever on the evaluteTo function. It doesn't matter if file.xml exists or not.

    On Windows and on Linux the same program run smoothly even if I use the QCoreApplication or the QGuiApplication or the QApplication.

    I tried also to play a little with the QXmlQuery functions. If I call the setFocus function I got the same behaviour (with QCoreApplication everything it's ok, with QGuiApplication it hangs for ever on the setFocus function).

    You should run the event loop:
    return a.exec();

    Otherwise, it might be a bug.

  • I tried it but Unfortunately I get the same behaviour.
