QStandardPaths::DownloadLocation returns Documents folder starting from Vista
In qtbase\src\corelib\io\qstandardpaths_win.cpp there is a comment:
"TODO implement with SHGetKnownFolderPath(FOLDERID_Downloads) (starting from Vista)"
I have implemented this in my build of 5.2. How could I submit the patch?
You can follow this "guide":http://qt-project.org/wiki/Gerrit_Introduction to get started
Happy coding !
Returning from a long vacation :)
I was unable to submit the patch because I'm behind a proxy and couldn't use git with ssh.
If someone is interested the patch is available at: "http://josuegomes.blogspot.com/2014/02/qt-5-qstandardpathsdownloadlocation.html":http://josuegomes.blogspot.com/2014/02/qt-5-qstandardpathsdownloadlocation.html
The patch applies equally well to both 5.2 and 5.2.1
Did you try using https ?
It didn't work either. After almost two months I don't exactly recall the details. Unfortunately I have no time to try again soon. Also I think it is not worth. The change is small. I have made the patch publicly available, so feel free (you or anyone else) to review and apply it.
Small but useful :)
