Introduction

This example shows how to calculate hash for a text string using QCryptographicHash.

Some Related Function

  • Adds the data to the cryptographic hash:
QByteArray string = "Nokia";
QCryptographicHash hasher(QCryptographicHash::Sha1);
hasher.addData(string);
  • Returns the final hash value.
QByteArray string1=hasher.result();

Source Code

Main.cpp

#include <QtGui/QApplication>
#include <QWidget>
#include <QHBoxLayout>
#include <QCryptographicHash>
#include <QString>
#include <QByteArray>
#include <QLineEdit>
#include <QLabel>
#include <QGridLayout>
#include <QPushButton>
#include <QHBoxLayout>
 
int main(int argc, char **argv){
QApplication app(argc, argv);
 
QWidget mainWindow;
QGridLayout* layout=new QGridLayout();
 
//widget initialization
QLineEdit *hashTextEdit=new QLineEdit(),
*originalTextEdit = new QLineEdit();
originalTextEdit->setReadOnly(true);
originalTextEdit->setText(QObject::tr("Nokia"));
hashTextEdit->setReadOnly(true);
QLabel *hashLabel=new QLabel(QObject::tr("MD4 &Hash:")),
*originalTextLabel = new QLabel(QObject::tr("Original &Text:"));
hashLabel->setBuddy(hashTextEdit);
originalTextLabel->setBuddy(originalTextEdit);
 
//widget placement
layout->addWidget(originalTextLabel, 0, 0);
layout->addWidget(originalTextEdit, 0, 1);
layout->addWidget(hashLabel, 1, 0);
layout->addWidget(hashTextEdit, 1, 1);
 
//bottom layout initialization ("close" button)
QHBoxLayout* bottomLayout = new QHBoxLayout();
bottomLayout->addStretch();
QPushButton* closeButton = new QPushButton(QObject::tr("C&lose"));
bottomLayout->addWidget(closeButton);
bottomLayout->addStretch();
bottomLayout->setMargin(0);
 
layout->addLayout(bottomLayout, 2, 0, 1, 2);
 
QObject::connect(closeButton, SIGNAL(clicked()), &mainWindow, SLOT(close()));
 
mainWindow.setLayout(layout);
 
//actual hash calculation TODO: make proper widget with signal/slots for hash calculation
QCryptographicHash hash(QCryptographicHash::Md4);
hash.addData(originalTextEdit->text().toUtf8());
hashTextEdit->setText(QString(hash.result().toHex()));
 
mainWindow.showMaximized();
 
return app.exec();
}
