Change file download from server

  • Thanks for your help!
    But it is work only with text file, how can i download and save in file executable file?

  • It works just the same. The QByteArray of readAll() just contains the transmitted bytes. Nothing is manipulated. Just save it to a file like above and name it accordingly. On unixoid OSes like Linux and Mac OS X you must set the executable bit(s) in order to actually make it executable. "QFile::setPermissions() ": is your friend for this.

  • You need to disable QIODevice::Text to correctly write into binary file btw

    Isn't that disabled by default and one has to switch it on manually?

  • I try do it, but it is dont work, i write:
    @ QNetworkAccessManager manager = new QNetworkAccessManager(this);
    connect(manager, SIGNAL(finished(QNetworkReply
    )),this, SLOT(winFileReplyFinished(QNetworkReply*)));
    QNetworkReply * networkReply = manager->get(QNetworkRequest(QUrl(label_6->text())));
    connect( networkReply, SIGNAL(uploadProgress(qint64,qint64)), this, SLOT(changeUploadProgress(qint64, qint64)));@
    //In slot winFileReplyFinished
    @ QFile file("Setup_Rizek_Qss_Editor.exe");
    if (! | QIODevice::Text))
    And system create file Setup_Rizek_Qss_Editor.exe without ico with the size of 1.37 KB instead of 4 MB
    And when you dont want to open it

  • Did you check what's in that file? You can open it with a text editor! Really!
    The file size makes me guess you're dealing with an HTML redirection.

    And for a binary file you must not use QIODevice::Text! Generally, you will not need it in most circumstances.

  • You are right, i have html code in this file, how can i circumvent it, and is it posible?

  • It depends on the contents of the file - the usual answer in dev world :-)

    If it is just a plain redirect, you must react yourself (send a second request with the new URL). See the docs on "QNetworkRequest::Attribute":QNetworkRequest::Attribute, especially QNetworkRequest::RedirectionTargetAttribute for some further details.

    If it is another download page one would have to investigate further.

  • Many thanks for your help!!
