How could I implement "what's this" using QtQuick? Is "Accessible" possible?
I need a way to implement "what's this" functionality. For example:
This software is made by me using Qt Quick. And I need to refer the usage of a certain control, such as a button or a text field.
AccessibleQML type is an attached property, it could somewhat helps, but I am not sure.
Does anyone how experienced using Qt Accessible framework, or is it suitable to use
Acceessibleto achieve my goal, or is there any other way to deal with it? Thanks a lot in advance.
Basically when talking about
Accessiblefeatures they are used for screen readers etc.
ALso it seems the "Whats This?" feature isn't yet integrated to QML controls.
@raven-worx I know
Accessibleis usually used for different people with different accessibilities, I mean can we use Accessible as a work-around to implement "what's this"?

Hi, what means ' implement "what's this" functionality ' ?
@LeLev it's a tool tip containing the information of the control.
but as i said it's not implemented yet in QML...
You can try to hook your own code into the WinAPI and connect it to your QML elements to enable WhatsThis, but this is out of scope of this forum.
@raven-worx windows API is not what I'm concerning. because I need cross platform effect. In general, I'm asking a solution to how to implement "What is this" functionality.
oh I need to stay tuned for the next release of Qt.

then insert whatever native API you target here.
It's not implemented in Qt, so you need to implement it yourself.
