    Default reading String from binary files

    im almost new in Qt! how can i read Strings from Binary files? (Strings which i already saved in binary file)
    this is part of my code that writes data(String) to bin file, you see:
    Qt Code:
    1. QFile file("Users.dat");
    2. | QIODevice::Append);
    3. QDataStream out(&f);
    4. out.setByteOrder(QDataStream::LittleEndian);
    5. out<<ui->Pass_signUp->text()<<"$"<<ui->User_signUp->text();
    6. file.close();
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    thanks in advance,

    Default Re: reading String from binary files

    Are you sure you know what you are doing? QDataStream is a serialization mechanism, not a general purpose binary stream. If you insist on using it then simply reverse the direction of streaming operators (of course read to variables and then set them on the widgets).
    Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is futile.

    Please ask Qt related questions on the forum and not using private messages or visitor messages.
