Unsolved Getting data from dynamic objects in C++ or Python backend
I'm a new to Qt and QML so perhaps this is obvious, but I'm looking for a best practice solution.
My problem is that I am designing a program that will need to have a sort of visual builder for logical rules (if A is X or Y and Z then B). My plan is to do this with dynamic elements. So the user clicks a button to add/delete a rule element and then when they are done they click finished and at that point the backend will need to parse the rule. So I will need to get the data from the dynamic components. How do I do that? I know how to do it with properties for normal components but the number of components will not be known so...
Grateful for any help of pointers!

You don't do it.
Instead you create your data in c++/Python and you display it in QML.
For example, when you click your add button, the QML side should call a c++ function to add a new rule. The c++ should then update one of its model/list properties and the qml should just display the list with a ListView/Repeater.
Think in terms of data and not visual objects.
The c++/Python side owns the data, the QML displays it and can ask for it to be modified.
Don't try to reach QML objects from C++
Ah, that makes sense, thanks!
But can I display a list of custom components in a listview? So I add, for example, an AND component that consists of two comboboxes in the list in the backend and that displays it in the frontend. And then when the user is done I can just go through the components in the list and get the selections. Is that the idea?
