Can’t use maximumLineCount



  • Hi!

    I'm using Qt Creator 2.0.94 (2.1.0-rc1) and I would like to take advantage of the property "maximumLineCount: 1" but it says that that is not a property.

    I use import Qt 4.7
    I cannot use import QtQuick 1.0 or 1.1 it says that it is not installed.

    I think that the documentation of Qt is a little bit messy because, for eg, use examples that can't be used on the program



  • can you elaborate where you came across this property and where you are trying to use it

    if you have Qt SDK installed properly you should get Qt Quick without issues.
    Try to download the latest verion that was released a couple of days ago and let me know



  • the property is this:
    http://doc.qt.nokia.com/4.7-snapshot/qml-text.html#maximumLineCount-prop

    i would like to use it here:
    @Text {
    id: categoryText
    width: parent.width
    height: parent.height / 2
    anchors.verticalCenter: category.verticalCenter
    font.pointSize: 15
    font.family: "Helvetica"
    font.bold: true
    horizontalAlignment: "AlignHCenter"
    color: "white"
    wrapMode: "WrapAnywhere"
    maximumLineCount: 1

            text: "Ecónomia"
        }@
    

    the qt ide don't have an auto-update? should I uninstall the actual version or just install it on top of the actual?



  • just installed the latest beta 1.1 for osx and still can't use maximumLineCount: 1 and I can't import qtquick 1.1 only 1.0

    this installation should have qtquick 1.1...



  • The Qt SDK has Qt 4.7.2, which includes QtQuick 1.0, not QtQuick 1.1.

    QtQuick 1.1 is scheduled for a later Qt release. If you want to use it now, you'll need to grab the Qt 4.7 source code from the repository at http://qt.gitorious.org/qt .

    The documentation under http://doc.qt.nokia.com/4.7-snapshot shows the latest documentation in the 4.7 branch, which may include features that have not yet been released.



  • my sdk has Qt 4.7.1, at least according to the information in the about, and i've downloaded the latest beta:

    Qt Creator 2.1.0
    Based on Qt 4.7.1 (64 bit)

    It's interesting, though, that the docs I'm seeing (the 4.7-snapshot online docs) say that the maximumLineCount property is read-only, yet the description starts by saying "Set this property to limit the number of lines that the text item will show."



  • documentation needs improvement



  • The property is not read-only, so it looks like a bug in the documentation. This has been reported as http://bugreports.qt.nokia.com/browse/QTBUG-17972.



  • I've used it on Qt Quick 2.0.
    I think the only bag is this line: "Was introduced in QtQuick 1.1."

    @Text
    {
    anchors.centerIn: parent
    width: 200
    font.pixelSize: 24
    maximumLineCount:2
    wrapMode: Text.WordWrap

        text: "This course will discuss the major ideas used today"
    }@
