QSortFilterProxyModel - get root path

  • How can I get the root path of a QSortFilterProxyModel that uses QFileSystemModel as its source model?

    I tried the following in an QSortFilterProxyModel-based class but it does not seem to work:

  • Iterate up to the root node, and get the path there through the appropriate role?

  • I tried but I cannot seem to get the string rootpath correctly. Thus I connected a slot to the rootPathChanged signal for the QFileStringModel and set a QString rootPath variable I delcared.

    void MainWindow::fsModel_rootPathChanged(QString str)
    m_checkProxy->rootPath = str;

    NOTE: still don't know why I was unable to get it using the rootPath

    Thanks for your response...
