Overview

This example shows you how to delete data from an SQLite database in Qt.

The table 'person' has the following columns:

  • id (integer primary key), this is an autoincrement field
  • firstname (varchar(20))
  • lastname (varchar(30))
  • age (integer)


Preconditions


For Maemo SQLite development, the following packages must be installed:

  • libqt4-sql
  • libqt4-sql-sqlite
  • libsqlite3-0
  • libsqlite3-dev


Header

#include <QObject>
#include <QSqlDatabase>
#include <QSqlError>
#include <QSqlQuery>
#include <QString>
 
class DatabaseManager : public QObject
{
public:
DatabaseManager(QObject *parent = 0);
~DatabaseManager();
 
public:
bool openDB();
bool deletePerson(int id);
 
private:
QSqlDatabase db;
};


Source

Delete a person from the database:

bool DatabaseManager::deletePerson(int id)
{
bool ret = false;
if (db.isOpen())
{
QSqlQuery query;
ret = query.exec(QString("delete from person where id=%1").arg(id));
}
return ret;
}


The rest of the code:

bool DatabaseManager::openDB()
{
// Find QSLite driver
db = QSqlDatabase::addDatabase("QSQLITE");
 
#ifdef Q_OS_LINUX
// NOTE: We have to store database file into user home folder in Linux
QString path(QDir::home().path());
path.append(QDir::separator()).append("my.db.sqlite");
path = QDir::toNativeSeparators(path);
db.setDatabaseName(path);
#else
// NOTE: File exists in the application private folder, in Symbian Qt implementation
db.setDatabaseName("my.db.sqlite");
#endif
 
// Open databasee
return db.open();
}


Postconditions

A person's data is deleted from the database.
