    Default QDirModel - show directory ".."?

    Using QTreeView and QDirModel can access local
    file system but the directory ".." does not appear.

    How to show directory ".."?

    Appears on the following way:

    (none)
    |-AA
    |-BB

    I want:

    directory
    |-AA
    |-BB


    Thanks.

    It is because ".." is really not part of the directory tree, it is only needed if you have a flat, table-like, view.

    How to show directory ".."?
    Two ways:
    1. Subclass QDirModel and reimplement for example data(), rowCount() and maybe some others
    2. Subclass QAbstractProxyModel and implement a proxy between the dir model and the view which will add the item on the view's side.

    I have the same problem, could you post some more information or code, please?
    I don't know how to subclass the QDirModel so that ".." is displayed first. All my attempts didn't work.

    What exactly did you try? Maybe you should go for QFileSystemModel instead?
    Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is futile.
