QTreeView::ScrollTo does no scrolling
I am loading file system in QTreeView and than want to select a particular folder and make it visible. My code selects the folder and it expands it as well but it doesn't scroll to it so I have to do all the scrolling myself which gets annoying since I have to do it every time. Here is my code.
@ExplorerDialog::ExplorerDialog(QWidget *parent) :
dirModel( NULL ),
selectionModel( NULL )
dirModel = new FileSystemModelEx; dirModel->setRootPath("c:/"); ui->treeViewFileSystem->setModel( dirModel); QSettings settings; QString sourcePath = settings.value(SOURCE_FOLDER, DEFAULT_SOURCE_FOLDER).toString(); QModelIndex folderIndex = dirModel->index( sourcePath ); ui->treeViewFileSystem->expand( folderIndex ); ui->treeViewFileSystem->scrollTo( folderIndex, QAbstractItemView::PositionAtTop ); ui->treeViewFileSystem->setColumnWidth(0, 200 ); ui->treeViewFileSystem->setCurrentIndex( folderIndex ); // set the left/right panes ratio 1:2 ui->splitter->setSizes( QList<int>() << 100 << 200 ); selectionModel = ui->treeViewFileSystem->selectionModel(); connect(selectionModel, SIGNAL( selectionChanged(const QItemSelection&, const QItemSelection &) ), this, SLOT(selectionChanged (const QItemSelection & , const QItemSelection & ) ) );
What am I doing wrong?
You are doing it too early. QFileSystemModel uses a thread to populate its content so you have to connect a slot to the directoryLoaded signals and do your scroll in there.
Hope it helps
