QTextStream confused



  • Hey there,
    I'm new and just started learning QT. i have basic c++ skills, so i thought i shoud give it a try. Everything is working fine. Im a little scared of qml because i like stl and everything is a bit weird, but i like how i just need a minute to create a window and all t hat stuff.
    but this is not why im here.

    Im writing a Programm and i use the tablewidget to manage some values.
    I also save the files in a text file and it works fine. now i also want to delete
    rows of the tablewidget and overwrite the old textfile with the new row values.
    i think im getting there but something makes no sense to me.
    I work with QStringStreams and QStrings. at one Point.
    i compare two QStrings. but no matter if i type == or !=
    its always the same result.

    I hope this code is enough (its not all but everything that does something with those two QStrings). i changed two labels to see the results.
    Just for a test and both labels always change (if i compare with != and ==).

    Im not the best thinker, but i usually find a solution in the end. So for this one i need you guys or girls.

    I really hope you can work with this. As far as i know... something that is equal should never pass as not equal or did i do something to breake rules of QT-Land.

    //my code here
    QString search_me="";
    QString line="";
    QTextStream in(&Datei); // <- Datei is the file im reading
    
    line = in.readLine();
    
    ui->label_2->setText(line);
    // this
    if (line != search_me)ui->label->setText(search_me);
    // and this
    if (line == search_me)ui->label->setText(search_me);
    // they both always 'pass' 
    // i tested both individually
    

    I hope my english isnt to bad to understand what i want . I usually just read or watch stuff in english.

    I think the problem is in how you define "passed"
    Print out messages in each if statement and you should see only one in output

    #include <QDebug>

    //my code here
    QString search_me="";
    QString line="";
    QTextStream in(&Datei); // <- Datei is the file im reading

    line = in.readLine();

    ui->label_2->setText(line);
    // this
    if (line != search_me)
    {
    ui->label->setText(search_me);
    qDebug() << "line != search_me";
    }
    // and this
    if (line == search_me)
    {
    ui->label->setText(search_me);
    qDebug() << "line == search_me";
    }
    // they both always 'pass'
    // i tested both individually



  • Thank you. It works now. But could you maybe explain why this happend ?
    If not i will try to find out for myself. Maybe its just to late (2 am over here).
    Well at least it works like it should.



  • I think you were confused by debugger.
    Code as it was should work,
    Debugger stops/executes by at least 1 line.

    you put if statement and function call in the same row:
    if (line == search_me) ui->label->setText(search_me);
    so it is not easy to see in the debugger if setText was executed
