View Full Version : Compilation failed ... I don't know why :(

26th January 2006, 15:47

I am pretty newbie in developpement so my mistake should be easy to find out, but not for me.

I have picked up some line of code in order do develop a simple custom widget but the compilation failed.

For the .h
#include <qwidget.h>

class QLineEdit;
class QPushButton;

class FileChooser : public QWidget
Q_ENUMS( Mode )
Q_PROPERTY( Mode mode READ mode WRITE setMode )
Q_PROPERTY( QString fileName READ fileName WRITE setFileName )

FileChooser( QWidget *parent = 0, const char *name = 0);
enum Mode { File, Directory };
QString fileName() const;
Mode mode() const;

public slots:
void setFileName( const QString &fn );
void setMode( Mode );

void fileNameChanged( const QString & );

private slots:
void chooseFile();

QLineEdit *lineEdit;
QPushButton *button;
Mode md;

For the .cpp
#include "filechooser.h"
#include "qlayout.h"
#include <qlineedit.h>
#include <qpushbutton.h>
#include <qfiledialog.h>

FileChooser::FileChooser( QWidget *parent, const char *name )
: QWidget( parent, name ), md( File )
QHBoxLayout *layout = new QHBoxLayout( this );
layout->setMargin( 0 );

lineEdit = new QLineEdit( this, "filechooser_lineedit" );
layout->addWidget( lineEdit );
connect( lineEdit, SIGNAL( textChanged( const QString & ) ), this,
SIGNAL( fileNameChanged( const QString & ) ) );

button = new QPushButton( "...", this, "filechooser_button" );
button->setFixedWidth( button->fontMetrics().width( " ... " ) );
layout->addWidget( button );

connect( button, SIGNAL( clicked() ), this, SLOT( chooseFile() ) );
setFocusProxy( lineEdit );

void FileChooser::setFileName( const QString &fn )
lineEdit->setText( fn );

QString FileChooser::fileName() const
return lineEdit->text();

Mode FileChooser::mode() const
return md;

void FileChooser::setMode( Mode m )
md = m;

void FileChooser::chooseFile()
QString fn;

if( mode() == File )
fn = QFileDialog::getOpenFileName( lineEdit->text(), QString::null, this );
fn = QFileDialog::getExistingDirectory( lineEdit->text(), this);

if ( !fn.isEmpty() )
lineEdit->setText( fn );
emit fileNameChanged( fn );

So here is the code ... could someone help me plese ?

#include "qlayout.h" with
#include <qlayout.h>
You should also post the error(s) that the compiler presented.
Finally please, please use the [C O D E] tags around your sources ;)

Thanks, it is ok now.

Next time I'll use the code tags.

Is there a way to put a [SOLVE] tag in the title message once the problem is solved ? (I've seen that on other forums, it's quite cool to only focus on specific messages, those that are not solved yet).

You could try to edit your first post, but I'm not sure if it will work (vBulletin distinguishes between thread title and first post title).
