Segmentation fault occurs when using createObject() call.

  • Hi,

    I have a slider control and a list view in the same application page, and whenever the current value of the slider is changed the listview gets a new ListModel (each element of this list has a subListModel as an attribute that is created and populated by a Javascript function). And a global dictionary is updated with sliderValue:ListModel pairs for each of the operations above. The application crashes with a segmentation fault randomly when the slider control is moved around to generate new lists.

    @QML File:

    Component {
    id: listModel

    id: slider
    onValueChanged: { Script.createModels(value,mainListModel,listModel); }

    model: Script.modelCache[slider.value]

    Script.js file:

    .pragma library

    var modelCache=new Object;

    function createModels(sValue,mainList,qmlListModel){
    var newObj=qmlListModel.createObject(null);

      // Populate newObj iteratively with values from a HTTP Request
              mainList.append({ resultObject: newObj }) // add to main list

    Could anyone tell me what's going wrong here or a better way to accomplish this??

    Thanks in advance,
