    Default Can't create folder if file with same name exists

    Hi,

    I noticed that you can't create a directory via QDir::mkdir() if a file with the same name already exists in the directory where you wish to create the new directory.

    Default Re: Can't create folder if file with same name exists

    That's basically true for the filesystems I know - you can't have a subdirectory and a file with the same name.
    Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is futile.

    Please ask Qt related questions on the forum and not using private messages or visitor messages.
