Re: Create an XML file?

I presume/think there might be an error on that page.

On the topic of saving the XML, they show following sampleCode:


// Add the employee list to a top-level QVariantMap, then wrap it in a QVariant
QVariantMap topLevelEmployeeMap;
myData[".root"] = QVariant("employees");
myData["employee"] = QVariant(myEmployeeList);
QVariant myData = QVariant(topLevelEmployeeMap);
You will be getting a compiler error on the second line because "myData was not declared' ==> typo?
Should this be:
// Add the employee list to a top-level QVariantMap, then wrap it in a QVariant
QVariantMap topLevelEmployeeMap;
topLevelEmployeeMap[".root"] = QVariant("employees");
topLevelEmployeeMap["employee"] = QVariant(myEmployeeList);
QVariant myData = QVariant(topLevelEmployeeMap);
