QtQuickControls version

  • Hi there!!,

    I'm developing a ground station in Qt, using both C++ and QML files. I use the QML files to implement a map. The problem is that, following the Map Viewer example, when dynamically creating menu items and connecting the "Triggered" signals with other functions, the latest versions of QtQuickControls give runtime errors, while older version run without errors. As an example, the following lines:

    Menu {
      function update() {
        addItem(qsTr("Add Marker")).triggered.connect(function(){itemClicked("addMarker")})

    With QtQuickControls 2.12 the errors are:

    ReferenceError: clear is not defined
    TypeError: Cannot read property 'triggered' of undefined

    Using QtQuickControls 1.4 I get no errors. Can someone help me understand the reason?

  • @DavidPL Hi,

    QtQuickControls 1.x and 2.x are two different API. Most of time you cannot switch between these versions without modifying your code.

    If you see documentation of Menu from QtQuickControls 2.x you will see that indeed clear() doesn't exist.

  • @Gojir4
    Yes, I've already checked that but I thought that maybe there is an equivalent expression in QtQuickControls 2.x for "clear()" and the connect expression, but I couldn't find anything.

  • Can you loop?:

    for(var item in menuId){

    I cannot find clear() method in Menu (QtQuick.Controls 1.4) documentation. So I am not sure exactly what clear does.

    I also don't know if its safe to modify a list I am looping through in javascript. Is it?

  • @fcarney said in QtQuickControls version:

    for(var item in menuId){

    Don't do this. It does a lot more than I expected. I did this:

                for(var item in menu1){

    The output is kinda scary:

    So, yeah, don't do that.

  • @fcarney @DavidPL

    for(var item in menu1.contentData){

    or even something more ambitious :)

    menu1.contentData = []

  • @Gojir4 said in QtQuickControls version:

    for(var item in menu1.contentData){

    That one removes every other item on first pass. I had tried that one.

    menu1.contentData = []

    Doesn't seem to do anything.

    This works:


  • Does doing this create a memory leak? It doesn't address destruction of the item.
