  • Feel free to ask any questions on the use of the code referenced above, or make suggestions for improvements. I am the author of that code, so I am interested in your feedback.

    Note that QFileSystemModel is capable of filtering, so filtering based on the extension is trivial.

  • The Qt4 QListView is a one dimensional MVC-Container. Therefore you need a model, which reacts on the role Qt::CheckStateRole in its data method.
