Asking user for folder creation in qt through dialog box .

  • How can i ask one user to create a folder through one dialog box in qt .

    So that whatever the name the user has given in the dialog box ( in a specific location,

    for eg. c:/user/...) the folder will be created in that location and if the folder is

    alreday present with the specific name in that location then replacement shall be done .

  • Have you looked into this one in Qt "QFileDialog":

  • #include <QFileDialog>
    QString fileName = QFileDialog::getOpenFileName(this, "Load Video",QString(),"Video (*.avi *.asf *.mpg *.wmv)");

  • If you talk about QFileDialog, you can do it like this:
    QString dirPath = QFileDialog::getExistingDirectory(this, .....);


    If you talk about code, you can do it like this:
    MyDialog dial(this);
    if(dial.exec()) {
    QDir dir( somedir );
    dir.mkdir( dial.dirNameWhichIgot() );

    This code will create dir (in somedir) with name got from MyDialog::dirNameWhichIgot() if execution of dialog was successful.

  • Thankx to all . i got the ans .. i have to use QFiledialog::getexistingdirectory()..

  • Now that, I appreciate you if you could prefix [SOLVED] to the topic so that others know that this issue is closed.
