Member Function Documentation

QDateTime QFileInfo::created() const

Returns the date and time when the file was created, the time its metadata was last changed or the time of last modification, whichever one of the three is available (in that order).

This function is deprecated. Instead, use the birthTime() function to get the time the file was created, metadataChangeTime() to get the time its metadata was last changed, or lastModified() to get the time it was last modified.

See also birthTime(), metadataChangeTime(), lastModified(), and lastRead().

Use symLinkTarget() instead.
