    Please, read the documentation first. As anda_skoa has noticed, copying files: QFile::copy(). As to the dialogs, there are predefined dialogs QFileDialog::getOpenFileName() and QFileDialog::getSavedFileName(). The dialogs are static methods of QFileDialog, you don't need to add anything, just call them.
