When to use an items id versus the type?
I have a ListView whos id is myListView with a delegate. In the delegate code, I set the delegates color based on if it is the current item. Either of these two blocks in the delegate will accomplish this:
color: ListView.isCurrentItem ? "red" : "black" // or color:myListView.currentIndex === index ? "red" : "black"
However, this block does not:
color: myListView.isCurrentItem ? "red" : "black"
Related, I have a click-handler in my delegate to set the ListView's currentIndex property to the delegate's index. This block works:
myListView.currentIndex = index
whereas this one does not:
ListView.currentIndex = index
So when are you supposed to refer to something my it's id, and when by it's type? I find this inconsistency problematic.
<Type>.<property>syntax is for attached properties.
Thank you very much for clearing that up for me.
