  • Try look to [[Doc:QFileInfo]] class.
    Also I recommend you look to [[Doc:QDirModel]] and [[Doc:QFileSystemModel]] classes.

  • Hi,

    You should look at "QDir".

    And try try try many things.
    But I'm sure, you will find everything in this class.

    Good luck.

    Oh... I've posted mine without refreshing :/

    You can use both. Qdir to list, QFileInfo to get the... File info ;)
