Getting the profile setting using QT settings

    I'm using the Qt settings and it saves the object into a file. it saves to a file called sessionrc.

    Now I'm trying to load the object from the settings and save it back.

    The problem is I can not identify the object from the settings, so that I can load all the profiles that are saved.

    I'm using the following load and save functionality

    
    void ProfileManager::loadFrom(Settings &set, bool ownGroup)
    {
        qDebug()<<"LOAD";
        foreach (const QString &group, set.childGroups()) {
            if(group == "Profile")
            {
                Profile *profile = new Profile();
                profile->setObjectName(group);
                profile->loadFrom(set);
                m_Profiles << profile;
            }
        }
    
    
        EraObject::staticLoadFrom(set, this);
    
    }
    
    void ProfileManager::saveTo(Settings &set, bool ownGroup, bool force)
    {
        EraObject::staticSaveTo(set, this, ownGroup, force);
    
         foreach(Profile * profile, m_Profiles) {
            profile->saveTo(set);
        }
    
    }
    

    The current setting file is

    [www]
    Ta=20
    Te=48
    Texp=38
    lim1=0
    lim2=0
    offset=0
    profilename=www
    

    [www] is the profile that is saved. but I have many of it. How would I load it back and save it correctly

    Hi,

    Are you looking for something like described in QSettings::beginWriteArray ?



  • I don't think so.

    I have a profile class which has member variables that needs to be saved in the settings file and load them back.
    I need it to be like that
    [profiles]
    [profilename1]
    member variables

    [profilename2]
    member variables

    Then it looks like a group
