Jump to: navigation, search

These code snippets shows how to convert hexadecimal to decimal unsigned integer, and vice versa.

Conversion from Hexadecimal to Integer and vice-versa is frequently required in Qt, for example if you want to show UID of application to user then you will get it in uint form, so need to convert in hexadecimal. Similarly when you want to uninstall application silently, then you need to convert hexadecimal to integer, because XQInstaller::remove() method take UID in integer form, not in hexadecimal.

Hexadecimal to decimal conversion

/* hexadecimal 0xED8788DC is equivavelent to decimal 3985082588 */
QString str = "0xED8788DC";
bool ok;
uint appId = str.toUInt(&ok,16); //appId contains 3985082588


Decimal to hexadecimal conversion

/* decimal 3985082588 is equivalent to hex ED8788DC */
uint decimal = 3985082588;
QString hexadecimal;
haxadecimal.setNum(decimal,16); //now hexadecimal contains ED8788DC
