QTreeView QML plugin with QFileSystemModel



  • Hello everybody. I'm trying to incorporate a Model/View into an application using QTreeView, QFileSystemModel and qmlRegisterType to create the QTreeView plugin.

    If my main.qml looks like this:

    @import QtQuick 1.1
    import TreeView_Plugin 1.0

    TreeView {
        id: myTreeView
        allColumnsShowFocus: true
    
    }@
    

    I get a QTreeView displayed looking like this:

    !http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-dtR8D2YWe1s/T_8mm21zLFI/AAAAAAAACfw/8LURCRfSXss/s1600/TreeView01.jpg(QTreeView alone)!

    However, when my main.qml looks like this:

    @import QtQuick 1.1
    import TreeView_Plugin 1.0

    Rectangle {
    id:myRect
    width: 400
    height: 400

    TreeView {
        id: myTreeView
        allColumnsShowFocus: true
    
    }
    

    }@

    All I get is this...

    I am not able to insert the "TreeView" into the rest of my QML and I can't figure out why.

    If I try to add a property change to x, y, width or height, for example:

    @ TreeView {
    id: myTreeView
    x: 15
    y: 15
    allColumnsShowFocus: true
    }@

    I get error: Invalid property assignment: "x" is a read-only property

    Of course I will post plenty more code if someone thinks they might be able to help.

    The application already uses a QDeclarativeView with an OpenGL backend like so:

    @QGLWidget *glWidget = new QGLWidget(this);
    setViewport(glWidget);
    setViewportUpdateMode(QGraphicsView::FullViewportUpdate);@

    There is of course a bit more code involving setting the FileSystemModel, etc, but I don't believe it is relevant. I am really quite baffled here. Obviously, I need the QTreeView to show within the rest of my QML or there really is no point.

    If anyone could point me to a way to do this, I would very much appreciate it. I'm pretty new to Qt and I readily admit that I sometimes have no idea what is going on "under the hood", especially when it comes to the whole MOC file paradigm.

    Whatever way I can get this done is fine with me. I really thought the plugin (qmlRegisterType) method was the way to go, because I'm using it to create an OpenGL window for animations in a separate part of the app, but, as you can see, it ain't working.

    Thanks for your help!



  • Hi,

    You'll need to wrap the QTreeView in a QGraphicsProxyWidget to use it in a mixed QML scene. The C++ Extensions: QWidgets example at http://doc-snapshot.qt-project.org/4.8/declarative-cppextensions-qwidgets.html gives an example of this technique.

  • @mbrasser Thanks for the quick reply! I believe you are correct sir. I am going about implementing that solution now. I will post back with my results.

    Cheers!



  • Ok, I got at least the preliminary workings of this implemented. It still needs all kinds of work to be fully functional, but see "here":http://ultraopengl.blogspot.com/2012/07/qtreeview-in-qtquickqml-implementation.html folks if you are interested in learning more.

    Again. Thanks for the help!

    Share the love

    Cheers!
