Getting Started: Compiling and Linking

v9.5.0.93 18-Nov-2022sha256: 5a9dd723a31d82538f47fa9e229534dcd6267893d9a07affca7010598e1e9c85
Chilkat C/C++ Libs for CLion, Bundled MinGW w64 9.0

Compiling and Linking

To link with the Chilkat static lib, you'll need to add a few things to the CMakeLists.txt in your project. Add the directory in link_directories where the libchilkat-9.5.0.a is located. Also add target_link_libraries line that includes the name of your project, followed by "chilkat-9.5.0 ws2_32 crypt32".

CMakeLists.txt

Here is a the source code for a simple C++ program. Your application must call UnlockBundle once at the start each time it runs. Include the Chilkat header for each Chilkat class used.

// Simple C++ Example
	
#include "include/CkCrypt2.h"
#include "include/CkGlobal.h"

bool UnlockChilkat(void)
{
	CkGlobal glob;
	return glob.UnlockBundle("Anything for 30-day trial");
}

void DoSomethingWithChilkat(void)
{
    CkCrypt2 crypt;
    crypt.put_CryptAlgorithm("aes");
    crypt.put_CipherMode("cbc");
    crypt.put_KeyLength(256);
    crypt.put_PaddingScheme(0);
    crypt.put_EncodingMode("hex");
    const char *ivHex = "000102030405060708090A0B0C0D0E0F";
    crypt.SetEncodedIV(ivHex,"hex");
    const char *keyHex = "000102030405060708090A0B0C0D0E0F101112131415161718191A1B1C1D1E1F";
    crypt.SetEncodedKey(keyHex,"hex");

    const char *encStr = crypt.encryptStringENC("The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.");
    std::cout << encStr << std::endl;

    const char *decStr = crypt.decryptStringENC(encStr);
    std::cout << decStr << std::endl;
    
    return;
    }

int main(int argc, const char* argv[])
{
	if (UnlockChilkat()) {
	    DoSomethingWithChilkat();
	}
	return 0;
}
