Overview

This example shows you how to create 'person' table into (SQLite) database in Qt.

Table person has following columns


Preconditions

  • Qt is installed on your platform


    • Maemo
      • More information about Qt on Maemo can be found here: Qt4 Maemo port


Maemo SQLite development needs following packages to be installed:

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


Header

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


Source

Create "person" table.

bool DatabaseManager::createPersonTable()
{
// Create table "person"
bool ret = false;
if (db.isOpen())
{
QSqlQuery query;
ret = query.exec("create table person "
"(id integer primary key, "
"firstname varchar(20), "
"lastname varchar(30), "
"age integer)");
 
}
return ret;
}

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

Database table "person" created.
