How do I get internet datetime using QT?



  • Hi,

    I need to get date-time from internet probably from NIST Internet Time Service (ITS) for embedded Linux device.
    I need a QT C++ help and example for this. Any help most appreciated.

    Kind Regards?



  • @NTCYP Hi! Someone created a NTP client in Qt -> https://github.com/diorahman/qntp-example



  • @Wieland Thank you, but my problem I cannot set the time zone for my embedded linux. There isn't any file /usr/share/zoneinfo/.
    So I set the hardware clock to the current system time using below comand.

    hwclock --systohc
    

    First I get time from my SQL server (which is updated every 15 min) and set it to manualy as;

    D_text = ReplaceDate(date.toString("ddd dd/MMMM/yyyy"));
    ui->labelDate->setText(D_text);
    showTimeStatus();
    

    and run system command

    system("hwclock --systohc").
    

    And worked nicely.

    Kind Regards
