How to set radius in Image Element
I need to show a kindly thumbnail Image to user, so I must set radius property in Image Element like Rectangle.
You can find a similar topic here which might help: http://developer.qt.nokia.com/forums/viewthread/1020
"Ths thread":http://developer.qt.nokia.com/forums/viewthread/7037 also discus that.
I have read both the cited thread and for a while I had the illusion that there was a solution best than mine. Unforunately all these solution seems ... not solutions.
At the moment I have solved with a masking system. In the Qt-Complex 2.0 version that I will release I have implemented a well working button object in several declinations where the rectangular image icon is masked with a drilled png. If your need the code you can keep in touch the Qt-Comlpex 2.0 project I will release in about a week.
The annoying question - partially solved by the theming capabilities of the framework - is that the mask of the button (that is rectangular anyway) should be of the same background color. This means to build for every kind of background a different mask.
I am thinking to a completely different approach: in the graphic capabilities of the QML is there something like the subtraction between objects? If yes, please advice me where I can search for some example or documentation else I have another solution in mind that it more complex but can be done one time for ever.
I found a new qt-component element "Here...":https://bugreports.qt.nokia.com/browse/QTCOMPONENTS-388.
Should I use the element now?
I think you can try, but as I read in the bugreport, it is actually unsolved and seems partially working.
On Qt 4.7.4 is documented and I think that with some test and experiemnts maybe used as well. It is possible that it don't give the desired result. I will try it later.
Thanks for the advice, as I have a working code (if any) I'll post it.
I tried and it doesn't work, so I will keep the post and waiting.Any way thank your help and work.
Good luck to you.
