Use an instance of a Component on two Pages
Is it possible to use the same instance of a displayable Component like a Rectangle in two different places. For example, on two different Pages on a PageStackWindow? If so, what's the syntax?
No, but you can reparent an item when needed.
Can I do that by assignment
component_id.parent = new_parent_id
or must I use a State change and the ParentChange element?
I tried it with interesting results.
Reparenting by assignment worked!
Reparenting by changing state and using a ParentChange did not work. The Component did not appear at all. I tried this with a simple red rectangle and this, too, failed. Is there something magical about PageStackWindow and Page that prevents this from working?
Thank you for helping me, Andre.
Looks like a good optimization at-least in my case. We are facing performance problems when qml items are created dynamically. I will do some r&d to see if we can recycle and use the created items. Please do share your updates about this.
