@ filename = QFileDialog::getSaveFileName(
"a_" + datetime_string + ".png",
What it the problem?
Hi and welcome to devnet,
You don't give enough information. What OS are you running ? Which version of Qt are you using ? When exactly does it crash ?
What does a run through the debugger tell you ?
A clean and rebuild solve the problem. Thanks the reply!
Running on Windows ? :)
Anyway, nice you found and and thanks for sharing, can you also please update the thread title prepending [solved] so other forum users may know a solution has been found :)
No, running on Fedora 18, Qt Creator 2.8.0 based on Qt 4.8.5, QMake version 2.01a. Next time I will update the thread title with [solved] tag immediately.
You're welcome !
Strange, it's typically the kind of strange crash I have mostly on Windows.
Anyway, happy coding !
