MIME Type Browser Example#
Shows the hierarchy of MIME types and can be used to determine the MIME type of a file.
MIME Type Browser is intended to be a tool for exploring MIME types rather than an example showing the typical usage of Qt’s MIME API.
Running the Example#
To run the example from Qt Creator, open the Welcome mode and select the example from Examples. For more information, visit Building and Running an Example.
The main window consists of a tree view displaying the hierarchy of MIME types based on the model MimetypeModel inheriting
QStandardItemModel on the left and a
QTextBrowser for showing detailed information about the selected MIME type on the right.
It has a main menu with an option File/Detect File Type, which lets you pick a file and then displays its MIME type.
