How to convert Qstring to date??? and again date to Qstring....? Means i want Qstring of type dd-MMM-yyyy to yyyy-MM-dd...?
Qstring str="11-Feb-2013" Now i wants the string in "2013-02-11"..?
What i tried is
QDate da=QDate::fromString(str,"dd-MMM-yyyy");
qDebug()<<"FINALISED DATE____________##########"<<da.toString("yyyy-MM-dd");

---------------Output---------
FINALISED DATE____________########## ""
its printing empty string please correct me...?

Hi,
First check if the date was assigned at all with some predefiend Qt format e.g. QDate::toString(Qt::DefaultLocaleShortDate). If this will be empty it means that the date is invalid and "fromString" failed.

What is Yours locale ? if it is not some English the name of the month will not be recognized.
What You have from this :
qDebug << QDate(2013,2,11).toString("dd-MMM-yyyy);

Hi, i meant to check if the date is valid first:
Qstring str="11-Feb-2013";
QDate da=QDate::fromString(str,"dd-MMM-yyyy");
if(da.isValid())
qDebug()<<"FINALISED DATE____________##########"<<da.toString(Qt:DefaultLocaleShortDate);

regards.
