Object id visibility in QML



  • If A.qml is a composition in B.qml which is a composition in main.qml then A.qml can see and refer to all object id's in B.qml as well as main.qml. Is doing so recommended as a good practice in qml world ?

    eg.,
    @//A.qml
    Rectangle {
    //can see and use objRoot - see main.qml below
    }

    //B.qml
    Item {
    One {
    id: one
    }

    A {
    }
    

    }

    //main.qml
    Rectangle {
    id: objRoot

    B {
    }
    

    }@

    An eg. when this could be required: A.qml has a drag-able component. Then when it is dragged we would need to call ParentChange to make objRoot the parent for the duration of the drag so that it remains a top level item, visible no matter where it's dragged around the window.

    If this is not a good practice then what's the alternative ?
