  • Make a text file and give full path in the program.
  • The following code snippet would read this file and display its content as a text label.

Source File

#include <QFile>
#include <QApplication>
#include <QLabel>
#include <QString>
#include <QTextStream>
int main(int argc, char *argv[])
QApplication app(argc, argv);
QFile file("c://in.txt"); | QIODevice::Text);
QTextStream in(&file);
QString line = in.readLine();
QLabel label(line);;
return app.exec();
