QLabel , QString encoding special characters

Hi @all,

I have some problems with QLabel and QString.

When I put my string "à°ç§éùè¨ÄÖÜüäößòè¡ñçáéšěčířž" in the text-proberty from my QLabel in the QT-Creator Designer it look like this
index.php?page=Attachment&attachmentID=3160 => OK

But when the App is running I get the the datastring offer TCP/IP and save it in a QString when I show it with qDebug() << myString
it is also OK all characters are showed.

When I set this string to my QLabel => myQLabel.setText(myString) it look like this
index.php?page=Attachment&attachmentID=3161 some characters are missed.

I test things like this:


but then I see only 3 characters and in the qDebug looks like ??????e?c??r?

When I have a look in my ui_....h where my QLabel is defined I see this
myLabel->setText(QApplication::translate("Display_z03", "\303\240\302\260\303\247\302\247\303\251\303\271\303\250\302\250\303\204\303\226\303\234\303\274\303\244\303\266\303\237\303\262\303\250\302\241\303\261\303\247\303\241\303\251\305\241\304\233\304\215\303\255\305\231\305\276", 0, QApplication::UnicodeUTF8));

There are all characters as dec./hex values have I translate all special characters to this values?

The local Codec => QTextCodec::codecForLocale()->name(); is "ISO 8859-1"

Why are all characters rigth in the QString and can showed by qDebug() but in the QLabel are some Characters missed?
Have I map this characters to a hex Value?

Thank you for helping hands

Bye Magnus
