How to create session and call it in QT

  • Hi, please how can I create a session and call it in QT!!

  • Hi jiji,

    Could you be more specific about your question?
    What kind of session are you talking about?


  • I want to store my user credentials, so I got to use a session

  • Is it to access a database, a network, your own app that you want to protect?

    Please tell us more about your use case.

  • In my application I have to manage user , so every time after authenticating I want to store the user details in a place that is easy to access.

    So... Do you have any central database to store these details ?
    Should it be only locally ?

    You have to give details about your application.

  • Hi,
    I store my data base in a mongoDB server, and I want to store user details locally, because when I close the application the user disconnect, but I want it remain connected.

  • Hi,

    This topic might have links to sample code you need.

    You could also search for other posts of course.

  • I managed to connect mongodb with QT and I recovered the data but the problem is when I closed the application the user will disconnect by default and when I open the application always the authentication interface is displayed.
    So I want to save the user data locally from mongoDB so that it remains logged in

  • You could store the user data in Qsettings. When opening the db check if there is a username filled in already.
    If it is don't show the authentification display but use the credentials from Qsettings.

    @Eddy I'd avoid plain QSettings for that, the credentials would be stored in plain text. Credentials are sensitive information that should be encrypted.

  • @SGaist Yes, you're right, my bad.

    It depends how strict the teacher will be for this school assignment ;-)

  • In the main method I use : engine.load(QUrl(QStringLiteral("qrc:/qml/main.qml"))); to display the authentification. So where I should put Qsettings!!??

  • In the main method I use : engine.load(QUrl(QStringLiteral("qrc:/qml/main.qml")));

    Thanks for letting us know you are using QML...

    Have a look at this link if you are not concerned with encryption yet.

  • I want to create session because I have list that I declare in the main using context property as following:
    int main(int argc, char argv[])
    qputenv("QT_QUICK_CONTROLS_STYLE", "material");
    QGuiApplication app(argc, argv);
    ApplicationUI appui;
    QQmlApplicationEngine engine;
    context = engine.rootContext();
    context->setContextProperty("myApp", &appui);

    //Users list
    QList<User*> listuser;
    listuser=u.getallUser() ;
    UserEntityModel modeluser;
    for(int i =0;i<listuser.size();i++ )
    QString fullname = listuser[i]->fullname();
    QString email= listuser[i]->Email();
    QString grade= listuser[i]->grade();
    QString evaluation = listuser[i]->evaluation();
    QString photo=listuser[i]->photo();
    context->setContextProperty("userModel", &modeluser);
    return app.exec();
    For now I want to display the lists according to the logged user saved in session
    But I can't refresh the list declared in the main, and it always shows me the lists of the last connection .
    So I want to know how can refresh a list in real time.

  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    You should implement a class that does proper user management and updates the model as needed.

  • @SGaist please can you explain to me better, I didn't understand what I should to do!!!
    And in QML I use the list model as following:
    ListView {
    id: listViewuser
    anchors.bottomMargin: -3
    anchors.leftMargin: -18
    anchors.topMargin: -3
    anchors.rightMargin: 5
    focus: true
    clip: true
    anchors.fill: parent
    delegate: userComponent "sortGroup"
    section.criteria: ViewSection.FullString
    section.delegate: stateChanged

    Since it seems that your user may change while your application is running, you should have a class which goal is to handle user management and part of its job would be to update that list.
