This article shows how to convert string to it uppercase using Qt's QString. We'll start by writing a simple test to verify that the function QString::toupper correctly copy the string and convert it to uppercase.

Class Implementation


#include <QtTest>
class TestQString: public QObject
private slots:
void toUpper();
void TestQString::toUpper()
QString str = "Hello";
QCOMPARE(str.toUpper(), QString("HELLO"));

Note that

  • The test class must inherit from QObject.
  • The tests must be declared as "private slots", so that QtTest can automatically recognize and execute them.
  • The macro QCOMPARE verifies that the two objects passed as arguments are identical and displays the value of these two objects, which facilitates debugging.
  • QCOMPARE macro is quite strict, in way that the objects compared must be the same type. if you pass a argument as QString and another as constant then a compiler error will occur
  • The macro QTEST_MAIN generates a main function that runs all the tests that have been reported via "private slots"

For compilation with qmake, just add the .pro for your project:

QT += testlib
