    UI QML:

    Item {
    width: 800
    visible: true

    Column {
        id: column
        x: 0
        y: 0
        width: 800
        height: 480
        spacing: 0
        GroupBox {
            id: g_Preferences
            width: 800
            height: 120
            spacing: -5
            clip: false
            title: qsTr("Preferences")
            Column {

                Row {
                    id: row3
                    width: 800
                    height: 30
                    spacing: 20
                    Button {
                        id: bt_start
                        height: 20
                        text: qsTr("Start")
                        anchors.verticalCenter: parent.verticalCenter


    width: 800
    height: 320

     id: qFrom
    		bt_start.enabled: enabled //bt_start not found
    bt_start.enabled: enabled 
    error: bt_start is not defined

    using the form:

    error: TypeError: Type error

    can anyone help?

    I've only found those solution on stack and qt
