hiding folders,files

I want to hide folders ,files. I have seen QFileInfo has isHidden() function but no option to set it as hidden. Is there anyway to make a file or folder hidden ?

Re: hiding folders,files

This might help, it appears adding a "." before the file name is supposed to hide it

Re: hiding folders,files

If you store a file in your app's private sandbox (ie, anywhere but the shared folder), then it will be hidden from the user and all other applications.
