QFileSystemModel::dropMimeData does not copy files?

  • Hi all,

    I'm trying to copy files using
    @m_fileSystemModel->dropMimeData(QApplication::clipboard()->mimeData(), Qt::CopyAction, 0, 0, qobject_cast<QAbstractItemView *>(focus)->rootIndex());@

    but this function always return false which means that the file is not copied, note that this function works perfectly if i passed


    I'm using Windows.
    Can any body help, please?

  • Hello,

    I have very similar problem too .
    I use method:
    @bool QFileSystemModel::dropMimeData ( const QMimeData * data, Qt::DropAction action, int row, int column, const QModelIndex & parent )@

    to copy/move files and directories. It works in all cases (copy/move single files and moving directory) except copying directories from one location to another (names are unique).

    I have no idea what's wrong...

  • I have noticed that there are some differences between source files in Qt versions. I'm using Qt 4.8.2 under Linux.
