    Default Need support in removing the Carriage Returns

    Hello All
    As part of json response, I am getting a QString with multiple carriage returns.
    I need support in removing them , as the string is of quite a big size.
    I tried using
    Qt Code:
    1. QString::simplified
    2. QString::remove(QRegExp(["\r\n]));
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 
    Please find the string attached as a file.

    QString::siimplified() should work, it should leave you with one newline everywhere. If you want to remove all newlines then use QString::remove() passing '\n' as the frst argument. However I don't understand why you'd want to remove those new lines.
    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.

    If you use the QJsonDocument, QJsonArray, and QJsonObject classes, it should simplify your parsing of the JSON data. If you need to store the JSON response in a compact format, the QJsonDocument::toJson() method has an argument that determines whether the resulting string is QJsonDocument::Indented (formatted with line breaks and indenting) or QJsonDocument::Compact (no formatting or line beaks).

    Disregard if you're using an old version of Qt that doesn't have the QJson* classes, but if possible, these will simplify your life!
