I think that instead of asking specific questions about a topic that I
am not too familiar about I will just describe my problem instead.

I have a folder in which I have a number of photos. The problem is that
this folder may contain one level of additional folders, that is, in
each folder the content is limited to files.


In this example root can contain folders but folder cannot. I hope I
made myself clear enough.

Here is what I want to do..
I want to show this in a tree view, and add a kpart to the right that
will show a preview of the pictures if the user clicks on it (and
nothing if the user clicks on a folder).

I also want to allow the user to copy/move files into this directory
with drag-and-drop, but I want to make sure that he only copies bmp and
jpg files (or in another case, where we are talking movies instead, I
want to make sure they are of a certain format and offer the user
conversion of his file if he is trying to copy/move a movie with a
format that is not allowed).

So the column thing is not really important, I was just wondering how
much power I have over the kpart. As you see, I only need to view the
content (if I want to do this in one view I need expandable folders),
listen for clicks on a file (openURLRequest?) and drop events (to give
the user limited access to copy/move files to this directory (he cannot
add any format and only one level of folders are allowed)).

Oh, to make myself even clearer this is for the Playstation Portable.

Thank you in advance,
