Cannot read second XML element

  • The question is:

    I have the following XML file which I believe is valid XML:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

    and have the following code to read it:

    QString settingsFile = settingsDir + "/QBoardSettings.xml";
        QFile file(settingsFile); | QIODevice::Text);
        QXmlStreamReader xmlStreamReader(&file);
        while (xmlStreamReader.readNextStartElement()) {
                QString s =;

    But this code prints only "Style" instead of printing names for both elements. What I am doing wrong? Thanks in advance.

  • Hi @fire_lizard

    Instead of using readNextStartElement() in While loop, use atEnd() method to parse the xml file till end.
