    Question QString::toLatin1() with umlauts

    Hi everyone,

    i'm trying to convert an url to latin1 percentage encoding. QUrl::toPercentageEncoding only encodes to UTF-8.
    I need this because I want to send a request to a server. This server expects latin1 percentage encoding for example for usernames with umlauts (öäüß...).

    Does anyone know how i can do this easily with QT?

    I tried it to convert the Strings to latin1 and use the hexcode, but there seems to be a problem.
    Why does "qDebug() << QString( "ä" ).toLatin1().toHex();" output "c3a4" (UTF-8) ???
    I assumed the latin1 conversion "e4".

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards,
    Daniel

    Default Re: QString::toLatin1() with umlauts

    Assuming your source file is encoded with utf8, so you have to use:
    Qt Code:
    1. qDebug() << QString::fromUtf8("ä").toLatin1().toHex();
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 
    .
