Editable Combobox not saving edited text

  • I have a editable combobox which is showing suggestions on entering text.
    But if I am editing the current text, its not being saved.
    After I make changes, it goes to onAccepted method in Combobox, finds the currect index but does not save it.
    When I click on some other page and come back the combobox is back to the previous selection.
    Please help.

  • ComboBox leaves it up to you to decide what happens when the input is accepted. See the example in the docs:

    ComboBox {
        editable: true
        model: ListModel {
            id: model
            ListElement { text: "Banana" }
            ListElement { text: "Apple" }
            ListElement { text: "Coconut" }
        onAccepted: {
            if (find(editText) === -1)
                model.append({text: editText})

  • After I change any value, my code goes to onAccepted method in ComboBox and does not hit the method I have written here.
    Is there something which I am missing out?

  • my code ... does not hit the method I have written here.

    I don't know what method you are talking about and how is it connected to this. I'm afraid we need to see some code to be able to help further.

  • @jpnurmi
    I assume OP means/claims the onAccepted is not hit, with the above example as copied from the specified https://doc.qt.io/qt-5.10/qml-qtquick-controls2-combobox.html#editable-combobox link.

  • Hi thanks for your help.
    I had earlier written the method as :

    category.onAccepted : {
    console.log("Print onAccepted");

    The below code solved the issue.

            target: category
            onAccepted : {
               console.log("Print onAccepted");
