The status indicates when the font has been loaded, which is useful for fonts loaded from remote sources.

For example:

import QtQuick 1.0

Column {
    FontLoader { id: fixedFont; name: "Courier" }
    FontLoader { id: webFont; source: "" }

    Text { text: "Fixed-size font"; }
    Text { text: "Fancy font"; }

Property Documentation

name : string

This property holds the name of the font family. It is set automatically when a font is loaded using the url property.

Use this to set the property of a Text item.


Item {
    width: 200; height: 50

    FontLoader {
        id: webFont
        source: ""
    Text {
        text: "Fancy font"

source : url

The url of the font to load.

status : enumeration

This property holds the status of font loading. It can be one of:

  • FontLoader.Null - no font has been set
  • FontLoader.Ready - the font has been loaded
  • FontLoader.Loading - the font is currently being loaded
  • FontLoader.Error - an error occurred while loading the font

Use this status to provide an update or respond to the status change in some way. For example, you could:

  • Trigger a state change:
    State { name: 'loaded'; when: loader.status == FontLoader.Ready }
  • Implement an onStatusChanged signal handler:
    FontLoader {
        id: loader
        onStatusChanged: if (loader.status == FontLoader.Ready) console.log('Loaded')
  • Bind to the status value:
    Text { text: loader.status == FontLoader.Ready ? 'Loaded' : 'Not loaded' }
