Qt Qt - Dealing with Databases Using a Database on Qt


Example

In the Project.pro file we add :

CONFIG += sql

in MainWindow.h we write :

#include <QMainWindow>
#include <QSql>
#include <QDebug>

namespace Ui 
{
    class MainWindow;
}

class MainWindow : public QMainWindow
{
    Q_OBJECT

public:
    explicit MainWindow(QWidget *parent = 0);
    ~MainWindow();

private slots:

private:
    Ui::MainWindow *ui;
    QSqlDatabase db;
};

Now in MainWindow.cpp :

#include "mainwindow.h"
#include "ui_mainwindow.h"

MainWindow::MainWindow(QWidget *parent) :
    QMainWindow(parent),
    ui(new Ui::MainWindow)
{
    ui->setupUi(this);

    db = QSqlDatabase::addDatabase("QT SQL DRIVER" , "CONNECTION NAME");
    db.setDatabaseName("DATABASE NAME");
    if(!db.open())
    {
        qDebug() << "Can't Connect to DB !";
    }
    else
    {
        qDebug() << "Connected Successfully to DB !";
        QSqlQuery query;
        query.prepare("QUERY TO BE SENT TO THE DB");
        if(!query.exec())
        {
            qDebug() << "Can't Execute Query !";
        }
        else
        {
            qDebug() << "Query Executed Successfully !";
        }
    }
}

MainWindow::~MainWindow()
{
    delete ui;
}
