What is exactly a FileItem? - Clarity72 - 2011-03-19 21:07
Hello Everybody !
I'm new on this forum.
I'm using xbmc since long time ago and i find that the structure and the modularity of this program is wonderful.
I would be happy to improve it so i'm interesting in source code to understand how it works internally.
I don't understand exactly the utility of FileItem Class.
What is the logic of use?
I guess that it serve for file managing but i don't understand exactly what it represents ...
Thank you for your help.

it represents a file or a directory. it has music/video/picture tags as well as the possibility to set general properties. it's the class used for representing entries in a list in the gui, and the class used internally in the virtual file system.
