QML - Search



  • Would it be possible to make a search function using QML? :D



  • what do you mean by search function? Where do you want to search? Please ask more detailed questions.

    Uhh, sorry :). A search function where-in you can look for certain words in a form using a textbox.



  • In what form? Maybe you can provide some example or mockup to be more detail.

    It would be easy enough to implement the interface for a search form in QML, but QML proper doesn't lend itself to doing the search logic. That would have to be written in C++ (or Javascript, I suppose).

    Uhh, I envision it to be like google, where you search for a word and a bunch of links or in this case, a bunch of paragraphs show up and the searched word will be italicized or boldfaced :D

    Ohh, so I would have to make it using C++ or Javascript then implement it in the QML form?



  • So you want to have web search implemented? I think you can use Google API in this case. And probably QML/JS will be sufficient for you (but I don't think it is good to implement network stuff at qml/js side, c++ suits here better for me)

    No, not a web search. Just a simple search function so that you can find specific phrases faster. Much like MS office's "Navigation" feature. Sorry for the confusion :D. Well that answers my question. I think I'll use C++ for this since everyone's saying that it's better. Thanks! :D



  • FlyingFish, it depends on your data structures. If you store data in JS/QML then it will be better to implement search in JS, if you store data in C++ then C++ search will fit better.

    Oh, well that explains a lot. I've been trying to use C++ and it wasn't doing the job right. Thanks Denis! :D.
