Trouble with anchors



  • I am attempting to create a text box which will display the value the user is entering inside of the keyboard:

    Row
        {
            id: idFlowDigitsEntryBox
            width: (keyWidth * 3 + keySpacing * 2) * 2
            height: 50
            anchors.bottom: idFlowDigits.top
            anchors.leftMargin: keySpacing
            spacing: keySpacing
    
            Rectangle
            {
                id: display
                color: "white"
                width: parent.width
                height: keyHeight
                radius: 5
    
                Text //<- error's on this line
                {
                    id: entryDisplay
                    width: parent.width - 50
                    anchors.centerIn: idFlowDigitsEntryBox
                    color: "black"
                }
            }
    
        }
    

    error:

    QML QQuickText: Cannot anchor to an item that isn't a parent or sibling.
    

    Why am I getting this error, any ideas?


  • Moderators

    The error message is clear - you should anchor to parent, not grand parent. Change your code to:

    anchors.centerIn: parent
    

    And the error will go away.
