  • Hi Khalid,
    the difficult part is to build the QMYSQL plugin. Johan Thelin provided a good description for it.
    Once you have built the plugin using MySql with Qt should work like a charm.
    Taken from QSqlDatabase documentation:

    QSqlDatabase db = QSqlDatabase::addDatabase("QMYSQL");
    bool ok =;

    Not meaning to start a flawmewar but please consider that the mysql driver is GPL which makes your app also GPL unless you pay for it. I am in the process of converting my database from MySql to PostgreSQL because of features, Oracles reputation and license.
    Have Fun
