Add Item to FileDialog?

  • Hi!

    In the application I am developing I would like to have a FileDialog which has an ExlusiveGroup with Radiobuttons on the right side to specify some import options. I tried to access and modify the source code of DefaultFileDialog.qml but I have troubles compiling the project, mainly because AbstractFileDialog is not known. I have tried copying files from "/opt/Qt/5.3/Src/qtquickcontrols/src/dialogs" to my project sources, I have tried to register AbstractFileDialog with "qmlRegisterType" and I have tried to import the whole "dialogs" folder, but it seems that I am not able to get this working. I would really appreciate a hint what I can do to realize this.

    Thank you.

    AFAIK it's cumbersome to customize the existing FileDialog and also you need to check about the modification of existing source code in terms of licensing issues. To get a real concrete response you can ask the Qt developers themselves on mailing list or IRC.
    Apart from that, to create a simple customized FileDialog it would be better to create your own FileDialog based on QAbstractListModel if you are familiar with C++ part.

  • Ok, I will figure something out. Thank you.
