QDomDocument & Encoding

  • Hello,

    i have a strange behavior... i have a XML File which is saved in ANSI but it has the <?xml ... encoding="utf-8">.
    In this XML there are special characters like ü (\xf6, 246).

    I could live with it if i get the Byte Value... but the QDomDocument setContent with QFile gets only unusable Bytes.
    How can i fix these wrong special characters? Its basically a Ansi File... should i overwrite it beforehand?
    Reading with QT as ANSI... fixing all issues and writing again? But you dont know if this is a ANSI File or not. Is there a way to check the Encoding for a File? It feels weird to do that.

    @ QDomDocument doc("mydocument");
    QFile file(xmlfile);
    if (!
    return NULL;

    if (!doc.setContent(&file))
        return NULL;
