    Default QFileSystemModel has no sorting

    Hey,

    The class QFileSystemModel does not have any sorting method. The non-threaded counterpart QDirModel, however, has this feature, namely

    void setSorting ( QDir::SortFlags sort )

    The problem is that the directory from QFileSystemModel is displayed in what appears to be a completely random order.

    Any clues?

    What happens if you just use QAbstractItemModel::sort() on your QFileSystemModel?
    If it doesn't work then you can use QSortFilterProxyModel.
    I would like to be a "Guru"

    Useful hints (try them before asking):
    1. Use Qt Assistant
    2. Search the forum

    If you haven't found solution yet then create new topic with smart question.

    Thanks.

    I just find it strange that QDirModel has the entire range of sortings enabled as you would expect, but this class hasn't.

    That's one of the reasons QDirModel is slow and QFileSystemModel is fast :-)
    Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is futile.
