Writing my own object to a binary file.

  • Hi,

    I want to write my own object to the binary file. But I receive the message:

    [QUOTE]C:\Qt\Qt5.1.1\5.1.1\mingw48_32\include\QtCore\qdatastream.h:300: error: no match for 'operator<<' (operand types are 'QDataStream' and 'const User')
    s << *it;

    void Dialog::on_btnWrite_clicked()
    QString nike = ui->wleNike->text();
    QString password = ui->wlePassword->text();
    QString firstName = ui->wleFirstName->text();
    QString lastName = ui->wleLastName->text();
    int age = ui->wspAge->text().toInt();

    User user;
    user.nike = nike;
    user.password = password;
    user.firstName = firstName;
    user.lastName = lastName;
    user.age = age;
    QVector<User> users;
    QString fileName = "c:/users.txt";
    QFile file&#40;fileName&#41;;
    QDataStream out(&file);
    out << users;


    Thank you!

  • Yes, you must define your own appropriate stream operators declared as non-member of the class

    QDataStream &operator<<(QDataStream &, const User &);
    QDataStream &operator>>(QDataStream &, User &);

    before you can use them.

  • Thank you! I'll try :)
