View Full Version : Pass QString array to constructor

4th February 2014, 09:28
Hi, I try program a menu based on a double linked list. Each menu-item is an Object of e.g. type "header" or "item". Now I want to support several languages for the menu. I thought to pass an array with the text in different languages to the constructor when creating the node. Is this a good approach?

And my second question is how pass an array 'directly' when creating the object like

Node *node1 = new Node( {"language1", "language2"}, type, ... );

when I have a QString array.

Best regards

Qt has has complete support for translating the labels and other static text in your program using Linguist
Internationalization in Qt
You might want to look at that before you reinvent a wheel.

To pass a collection of QStrings (there are none in your example) you could pass a const reference to a QStringList or QVector<QString>. You can create a QStringList in situ with:

blah(QStringList() << QString("a") << QString("b"));
