Hello,

I need to watch for changing current directory, when someone changed current directory of application. I found QFileSystemWatcher, but it can only watch for changes in current directory.

Thanks in advance.

How can someone change the current directory behind your back? I don't think there are any facilities for monitoring the current working directory.

We write the plugin system. Any plug-in can execute Qt::setCurrent, and other plug-ins need to respond of this event.

Wrap the call into your own call and let the plugins only use your call instead of the one that directly changes the current directory.

I already have internal function for set current directory. Some developers, sometimes, use setCurrent from Qt. I would use qt events and convert them in our events, when someone use not my function for change directory. Thanks, I understood, It's impossible with Qt.
