It replaces an escaped quantity with the formatted model of its argument; if we write: QString s = new QString("%1 %2"). arg("a"). arg("b"); Then s includes the string a b. moment, you have to find out about the toString approach to QLocale, which codecs its argument in a locale-specific manner. So, shall we write: QString currencyValue = QString("%1 %2") . arg(tr("$")). arg(QLocale::toString(value, 'g', 2) This makes use of tr to localize the forex image, and the QLocale class's static process toString to transform the worth to a string with the locale-specific decimal separator (period within the U. S. and Canada, comma in Europe). Date formatting is identical: the toString approach to QLocale has overloads for the QDateTime, QDate, and QTime arguments, so that you can easily write: QDateTime whenDateTime = QDateTime::currentDateTime(); QString while = QLocale::toString(whenDate); This will get the present date and time and shops it in whenDateTime, after which makes a string out of it utilizing the locale's default formatting. The toString process can take a moment argument that determines the output structure. it may be one of many following: • QLocale::LongFormat, which makes use of the lengthy model of month and day names • QLocale::ShortFormat, which makes use of the fast model of day and month names • QLocale::NarrowFormat, which supplies the narrowest kind of formatting for the date and time [ seventy seven ] Localizing Your software with Qt Linguist precis Localizing functions with Qt is straightforward utilizing Qt Linguist and the localization framework in Qt. to exploit the framework, notwithstanding, you want to mark your strings to localize with tr or qsTr on your resource code anyplace they seem. when you achieve this, you could create a resource dossier of strings to translate with Qt Linguist utilizing Qt's lupdate command, after which supply translations for every string. as soon as you may have supplied the translations, you collect them utilizing lrelease, after which comprise them on your software through fitting a QTranslator item on your application's major functionality and loading the interpretation desk generated by way of lrelease. within the subsequent bankruptcy, we'll examine one other vital element of software program improvement Qt author helps, that's functionality research with the QML Profiler and Valgrind. [ eighty two ] Performance Optimization with Qt author we do not use functionality research instruments on a daily basis, yet we are happy they're there once we desire them. advertisement instruments just like the ones that include Microsoft visible Studio or standalone instruments comparable to IBM's Rational Rose Purify can set you again a gorgeous pile of change—fortunately, Qt writer has such a lot of what you would like integrated, or has aid for operating with open resource instruments that can assist you profile the runtime and reminiscence functionality of your program. during this bankruptcy, we'll see how we will be able to practice runtime profiling of QML functions utilizing the QML functionality analyzer, and how to learn the file it generates. We then flip our recognition to reminiscence functionality research with Valgrind utilizing Qt writer, that is a loose choice to search for reminiscence leaks and heap corruption at the Linux platform.
