      Description

      Catching file change in following way:

          QFileSystemWatcher watcher;
          QFileInfo file(url.toLocalFile());
          watcher.addPath(file.absoluteFilePath());
          connect(&watcher, &QFileSystemWatcher::fileChanged, this, &MyClass::mySlot);
      

      slot receives signal only once, then QFileSystemWatcher does not react on any file change. To catch file changes use following workaround - added following lines:

          qmlWatcher.addPath(file.absolutePath());
          connect(&watcher, &QFileSystemWatcher::directoryChanged, this, &MyClass::mySlot);
      

      In this case able to catch all further file modifications.
