    Default How do you return a list of the current project folders and files of your project?

    So I posted this on Ask Ubuntu http://askubuntu.com/questions/55394...of-your-curren

    And would love to share any answer there.

    I hope my question is straightforward enough to understand. All I want (best case scenario) is a function that will return a list of the active project's files and folders. I will settle however if a list of all the files in the sidebar are returned.

    Thanks !

    Your question does not indicate where you need that information.
    Are you writing a QtCreator plugin and/or extending an existing one and are asking how to access the project details?

    Thanks for your reply!

    I am writing a QtCreator plugin, and I am asking how to access the project details.

    So in essence,

    tools>myPlugin>run

    should return a qstringlist of all the files/folders of my current project. I think from that I should be able to construct the rest of the plugin.

    Maybe some approach like this will work:

    - get hold of the project explorer instance
    - ask it for the current project
    - ask that for its file

    Any idea of how to get hold of the project explorer instance?

    The PluginManager has an instance() method and several getObject methods.
    The ProjectExplorerPlugin has an instance() method.

    I do apologize for not being a terribly apt c++ programmer, but would you mind providing a small code snippet?

    Well, I am not sure you will succeed in your endeavor if you already have difficulties with C++ basics like calling a method.

    Qt Code:
    1. const QStringList projectFiles = ProjectExplorerPlugin::currentProject()->files(Project::ExcludeGeneratedFiles);
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode
