Hi, I want to get the current text from line edit and return its containing text to another class without using a signal/slot button. This process needs to happen only once. I can't think of anyway to do it right now.

Thanks in advance.

QString text = lineedit->text();
otherClass->DoSomething(text);

Thanks in advance.
You're welcome.

You're welcome.

From the above it looks like you are getting the text and applying changes in one method. I need to use the line edit text in the other classes method.

void get_the_current_text_from_lineedit_and_use_it_in_t he_other_classes_method(QLineEdit *lineedit, AnotherClass *otherClass) {
QString text = lineedit->text();
otherClass->setTextThatCanBeUsedElsewhere(text);
}

void AnotherClass::setTextThatCanBeUsedElsewhere(const QString &txt) { m_textThatCanBeUsedElsewhere = txt; }

void AnotherClass::doSomethingWithTextSetWithSetTextTha tCanBeUsedElsewhere() {
doSomethingWith(m_textThatCanBeUsedElsewhere);
}

You're welcome.

By the way, how is this problem related to Qt?
