This code demonstrates the QTreeView implemented in QComboBox. Here you can expand the tree view and also select the file you want, no restriction of QComboBox closing on one click, you can select items upto any level.

Name of classed used:

QTreeView-Provides a default model/view implementation of a tree view.

QDirModel-Provides a data model for the local file system.

Source Code

#include <QtGui/QApplication>
#include "widget.h"
#include<QComboBox>
#include<QDirModel>
#include<QTreeView>
#include<QEvent>
#include<QMouseEvent>
#include<QModelIndex>
#include<QDir>
class TreeBox : public QComboBox
{
public:
TreeBox(QWidget* parent = 0) : QComboBox(parent), skipNextHide(false) //Widget creation
{
setView(new QTreeView(this));
view()->viewport()->installEventFilter(this);
QComboBox::resize(200,30);
}
 
bool eventFilter(QObject* object, QEvent* event)
{
if (event->type() == QEvent::MouseButtonPress && object == view()->viewport())
{
QMouseEvent* mouseEvent = static_cast<QMouseEvent*>(event);
QModelIndex index = view()->indexAt(mouseEvent->pos());
if (!view()->visualRect(index).contains(mouseEvent->pos()))
skipNextHide = true;
}
return false;
}
 
virtual void showPopup()
{
setRootModelIndex(static_cast<QDirModel*>(model())->index(QDir::rootPath()));
QComboBox::showPopup();
}
 
virtual void hidePopup()
{
setRootModelIndex(view()->currentIndex().parent());
setCurrentIndex(view()->currentIndex().row());
if (skipNextHide)
skipNextHide = false;
else
QComboBox::hidePopup();
}
 
private:
bool skipNextHide;
};
int main(int argc, char *argv[])
{
QApplication a(argc, argv);
TreeBox combo; //Class object declaration
QDirModel model;
combo.setModel(&model); //implemention QDir model
combo.show();
return a.exec();
}
