View Full Version : QFileSystemModel file icon overlays

QFileSystemModel seems to be perfect for the task I need, being threaded and all. However, I also plan to use a Windows shell extension that uses icon overlays. QFileSystemModel doesn't seem to support these - has anyone any ideas of how to support them?

I don't think there is a way to do that unless you can ask your system through an API call for icons for specific files that include overlays for them.

Fair enough, I'll try and subclass QFileIconProvider to provide the required functionality first, and then go from there. Seems the most logical solution.
