comboBox->additem() crash application..

  • @VRonin it will crash however

  • @TheCipo76

    Hi! Actually in designer it creates pointers, ui-> is the namespace, and comboBox_Cliente-> is a C++ pointer. What is the error message when it crashes?

  • @Cobra91151

    in application output :

    18:45:34: The process was ended forcefully.
    18:45:34: /Users/matteo/Desktop/C++/QT/EasyGest/build-EasyGest-Desktop_Qt_5_11_2_clang_64bit18-Release/ crashed.

    in the constructor of your class, can you add QObject::connect(ui->comboBox_Cliente,&Qobject::destroyed,[]()->void{qDebug("Something exploded");});?

    If you see the output it means you are deleting your ui before reusing it

  • @VRonin said in comboBox->additem() crash application..:

    QObject::connect(ui->comboBox_Cliente,&Qobject::destroyed,->void{qDebug("Something exploded");});

    i don't understand where i have to put it..

    in the .h file

    after Q_OBJECT ??

  • @VRonin ok..

    no output were showed

    i've put it after


    in the dialog

    And it still crashes? did you set Qt::WA_DeleteOnClose?

  • @VRonin No, i don't know what is it.. sorry but i'm new user of Qt

  • Qt Champions 2018

    One more try, add QObject::connect(this,&QObject::destroyed,[]()->void{qDebug("Something big exploded");}); and see if you have any output when you crash the application

  • @VRonin said in comboBox->additem() crash application..:

    QObject::connect(this,&QObject::destroyed,->void{qDebug("Something big exploded");});

    no, i don't see any output..

  • Qt Champions 2018

    This is turning into a mistery now. Can you post the stack trace at the moment of crash?

  • @TheCipo76

    This crash happens after you addItem() to the ui->comboBox_Cliente?

    Try to change the code to:

    if (cl.exec()) {
        if (cl.first()) {
        do {
        } while (;

    and check if it still crashes?

  • @TheCipo76

    after first record of database additem() crashes the application

    Has nobody yet asked you to run this in a debugger (e.g. from Qt Creator)? And give us the stacktrace? EDIT: Oh, @VRonin has 2 posts above. Please do so!

  • @VRonin you mean the os x crash report??

  • Qt Champions 2018

    @TheCipo76 said in comboBox->additem() crash application..:

    you mean the os x crash report??

    Nope, the stack trace which is a log of all the functions called up to the point of crash. If you use Qt Creator, see

  • @TheCipo76
    Do you sit inside Qt Creator and run your app from within there via the debugger? We are expecting that when something "crashes", the debugger will catch that and show a stacktrace of exactly where it was in your code.

    The macOS crash report should also contain useful information in that regard so you can post it.

    2 inserisciarticolo::on_comboBox_Cliente_currentTextChanged(QString const&) inserisciarticolo.cpp 497 0x10003ce05

    While executing your comboBox->additem(), you have a slot on_comboBox_Cliente_currentTextChanged, which does a setText(), which you haven't told us about? What is your code for that function...? Because I think you're going to find the crash is there :)

    This is why learning to use a debugger will be about the most productive time investment you can make!

  • @JonB because i think the problem is not there.. arg1 was not used..
    it's a blanking form slot..

    void inserisciarticolo::on_comboBox_Cliente_currentTextChanged(const QString &arg1)
        if (AzzeraI == true) {
            for (int i=0;i<10;i++) {

    You're right!! The problem was "AzzeraI" var..
    i set it to false on dialog loading and all works!

    Thanks to all
