QML ListView atYEnd not emitted

  • Hi All,

    Im using QtCreator and have written a basic QML test app to demonstrate an issue i've been seeing..

    ListView component with more delegates than can fit in to the view. Delegates (for this demo) consist of a green rectangle with a blue border. There is a red rectangle which we append to the end of this listview to indicate that there are more items below. This red rectangles visible property is bound to the list views atYEnd. So when we are at the very bottom of the list view, the red rectangle should be hidden; otherwise, we display it.

    Flick (not drag) to the end of the listview and the red rectangle will still be visible. It seems the atYEnd is not emitted. If you were to then take note of the bottom delegates position and select and drag up, you'll notice that the delegate hasn't moved, yet the red rectangle has disappeared; meaning the atYEnd has been received.

    Has anyone come across this issue before and if so, did you find a work around to correctly detect the end of the list view? I have posted this on another forum but as of yet, no response. I'm thinking ill need to raise a bug for the issue at this point!

    Thanks in advance,

    @teh_raab Perhaps it is QtQuick 1.x related issue. Did you try with latest QtQuick 2.x ?

  • @p3c0 thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately im limited to QtQuick 1.1. That being said though, i did try to use 2.0 but got an error regarding it not being supported by the qmlviewer. Even though i got that warning, the issue no longer presented itself which i thought is very strange!

    So... i can see the issue with QtQuick import of 1.0 and 1.1. If i use any QtQuick import of 2.0->2.3 (any higher and it wont launch), i get the warning..

    "qmlviewer: 'import QtQuick 2.x' is not supported by qmlviewer."

    but it works! Any idea why? What import is being used when i get the above warnings?

    @teh_raab QtQuick 1.x will work with Qt 4.x only and thus the error you encountered. Similarly QtQuick 2.x will only work with Qt 5.x. No backward compatibility for QtQuick. It is completely deprecated in Qt 5.x.
    I'm too pretty much surprised qmlviewer excecuted that code with QtQuick 2.x import. Have you installed Qt5 and Qt4 both ?

  • @p3c0 Tools->Options->Build & Run->Kits is only showing Qt 5.3 installed.

  • Moderators

    @teh_raab Qt 5.3 wont be able to run QtQuick 1.x. It uses qmlscene to execute the standalone QML's.

  • @p3c0 Thanks, that would explain it :) I will leave this as a limitation for now until i can update to QtQuick 2.x. Thanks again for your help
