[SOLVED] How to show branch/child indicator for QStandardItem



  • Hello,

    I have QTreeView which uses QStandardItemModel/QStandardItem to show remote directories and files. I dont want to populate all dirs until the branch icon is clicked.
    So is there any way to show the indicators as in QTreeWidgetItem::setChildIndicatorPolicy(QTreeWidgetItem::ShowIndicator) ?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    AFAIK, you need to have a child to have the indicator. What you could do is put a dummy child that says e.g. "Loading.." and that you will replace once you have your data.

    Hope it helps

    Thank you! It works as wonderful. Later when i populate the dirs i will remove the empty "Loading.." item.
