Qt Quick Examples - Views

Views is a collection of small QML examples relating to model and view functionality. They demonstrate how to show data from a model using the Qt Quick view types. For more information, visit the Models and Views in Qt Quick page.

Running the Example

To run the example from Qt Creator, open the Welcome mode and select the example from Examples. For more information, visit Building and Running an Example.

GridView and PathView

GridView and PathView demonstrate usage of these types to display views.

    GridView {
        anchors.fill: parent
        cellWidth: 100; cellHeight: 100
        focus: true
        model: appModel

        highlight: Rectangle { width: 80; height: 80; color: "lightsteelblue" }

        delegate: Item {
            width: 100; height: 100

            Image {
                id: myIcon
                y: 20; anchors.horizontalCenter: parent.horizontalCenter
                source: icon
            }
            Text {
                anchors { top: myIcon.bottom; horizontalCenter: parent.horizontalCenter }
                text: name
            }
            MouseArea {
                anchors.fill: parent
                onClicked: parent.GridView.view.currentIndex = index
            }
        }
    }

Dynamic List

Dynamic List demonstrates animation of runtime additions and removals to a ListView.

The ListView.onAdd signal handler runs an animation when new items are added to the view, and the ListView.onRemove another when they are removed.

        Item {
            ListView.onAdd: SequentialAnimation {
                PropertyAction { target: delegateItem; property: "height"; value: 0 }
                NumberAnimation { target: delegateItem; property: "height"; to: 80; duration: 250; easing.type: Easing.InOutQuad }
            }

            ListView.onRemove: SequentialAnimation {
                PropertyAction { target: delegateItem; property: "ListView.delayRemove"; value: true }
                NumberAnimation { target: delegateItem; property: "height"; to: 0; duration: 250; easing.type: Easing.InOutQuad }

                // Make sure delayRemove is set back to false so that the item can be destroyed
                PropertyAction { target: delegateItem; property: "ListView.delayRemove"; value: false }
            }
        }

Expanding Delegates

Expanding Delegates demonstrates delegates that expand when activated.

It has a complex delegate the size and appearance of which can change, displacing other items in the view.

        Item {
            id: recipe

            // Create a property to contain the visibility of the details.
            // We can bind multiple element's opacity to this one property,
            // rather than having a "PropertyChanges" line for each element we
            // want to fade.
            property real detailsOpacity : 0
            MouseArea {
                anchors.fill: parent
                onClicked: recipe.state = 'Details';
            }

            // Lay out the page: picture, title and ingredients at the top, and method at the
            // bottom.  Note that elements that should not be visible in the list
            // mode have their opacity set to recipe.detailsOpacity.

            Row {
                id: topLayout
                x: 10; y: 10; height: recipeImage.height; width: parent.width
                spacing: 10

                Image {
                    id: recipeImage
                    width: 50; height: 50
                    source: picture
                }
            Item {
                id: details
                x: 10; width: parent.width - 20

                anchors { top: topLayout.bottom; topMargin: 10; bottom: parent.bottom; bottomMargin: 10 }
                opacity: recipe.detailsOpacity
            }

            // A button to close the detailed view, i.e. set the state back to default ('').
            TextButton {
                y: 10
                anchors { right: background.right; rightMargin: 10 }
                opacity: recipe.detailsOpacity
                text: "Close"

                onClicked: recipe.state = '';
            }

            states: State {
                name: "Details"

                PropertyChanges { target: background; color: "white" }
                PropertyChanges { target: recipeImage; width: 130; height: 130 } // Make picture bigger
                PropertyChanges { target: recipe; detailsOpacity: 1; x: 0 } // Make details visible
                PropertyChanges { target: recipe; height: listView.height } // Fill the entire list area with the detailed view

                // Move the list so that this item is at the top.
                PropertyChanges { target: recipe.ListView.view; explicit: true; contentY: recipe.y }

                // Disallow flicking while we're in detailed view
                PropertyChanges { target: recipe.ListView.view; interactive: false }
            }

            transitions: Transition {
                // Make the state changes smooth
                ParallelAnimation {
                    ColorAnimation { property: "color"; duration: 500 }
                    NumberAnimation { duration: 300; properties: "detailsOpacity,x,contentY,height,width" }
                }
            }
        }

Highlight

Highlight demonstrates adding a custom highlight to a ListView.

    // Define a highlight with customized movement between items.
    Component {
        id: highlightBar
        Rectangle {
            width: 200; height: 50
            color: "#FFFF88"
            y: listView.currentItem.y;
            Behavior on y { SpringAnimation { spring: 2; damping: 0.1 } }
        }
    }

    ListView {
        id: listView
        width: 200; height: parent.height
        x: 30

        model: PetsModel {}
        delegate: petDelegate
        focus: true

        // Set the highlight delegate. Note we must also set highlightFollowsCurrentItem
        // to false so the highlight delegate can control how the highlight is moved.
        highlight: highlightBar
        highlightFollowsCurrentItem: false
    }

Highlight Ranges

Highlight Ranges shows the three different highlight range modes of ListView.

Rectangle {
    id: root
    property int current: 0
    property bool increasing: true
    // Example index automation for convenience, disabled on click or tap
    SequentialAnimation {
        id: anim
        loops: -1
        running: true
        ScriptAction {
            script: if (increasing) {
                        current++;
                        if (current >= aModel.count -1) {
                            current = aModel.count - 1;
                            increasing = !increasing;
                        }
                    } else {
                        current--;
                        if (current <= 0) {
                            current = 0;
                            increasing = !increasing;
                        }
                    }
        }

        PauseAnimation { duration: 500 }
    }
    ListView {
        id: list1
        height: 50; width: parent.width
        model: PetsModel {id: aModel}
        delegate: petDelegate
        orientation: ListView.Horizontal

        highlight: Rectangle { color: "lightsteelblue" }
        currentIndex: root.current
        onCurrentIndexChanged: root.current = currentIndex
        focus: true
    }

    ListView {
        id: list2
        y: 160
        height: 50; width: parent.width
        model: PetsModel {}
        delegate: petDelegate
        orientation: ListView.Horizontal

        highlight: Rectangle { color: "yellow" }
        currentIndex: root.current
        preferredHighlightBegin: 80; preferredHighlightEnd: 220
        highlightRangeMode: ListView.ApplyRange
    }

    ListView {
        id: list3
        y: 320
        height: 50; width: parent.width
        model: PetsModel {}
        delegate: petDelegate
        orientation: ListView.Horizontal

        highlight: Rectangle { color: "yellow" }
        currentIndex: root.current
        onCurrentIndexChanged: root.current = currentIndex
        preferredHighlightBegin: 125; preferredHighlightEnd: 125
        highlightRangeMode: ListView.StrictlyEnforceRange
    }
}

Sections

Sections demonstrates the various section headers and footers available to ListView.

    // The delegate for each section header
    Component {
        id: sectionHeading
        Rectangle {
            width: container.width
            height: childrenRect.height
            color: "lightsteelblue"

            Text {
                text: section
                font.bold: true
                font.pixelSize: 20
            }
        }
    }

    ListView {
        id: view
        anchors.top: parent.top
        anchors.bottom: buttonBar.top
        width: parent.width
        model: animalsModel
        delegate: Text { text: name; font.pixelSize: 18 }

        section.property: "size"
        section.criteria: ViewSection.FullString
        section.delegate: sectionHeading
    }

Packages

Packages uses the Package type to transition delegates between two views.

It has a Package object which defines delegate items for each view and an item that can be transferred between delegates.

Package {
    Text { id: listDelegate; width: parent.width; height: 25; text: 'Empty'; Package.name: 'list' }
    Text { id: gridDelegate; width: parent.width / 2; height: 50; text: 'Empty'; Package.name: 'grid' }

    Rectangle {
        id: wrapper
        width: parent.width; height: 25
        color: 'lightsteelblue'

        Text { text: display; anchors.centerIn: parent }
        state: root.upTo > index ? 'inGrid' : 'inList'
        states: [
            State {
                name: 'inList'
                ParentChange { target: wrapper; parent: listDelegate }
            },
            State {
                name: 'inGrid'
                ParentChange {
                    target: wrapper; parent: gridDelegate
                    x: 0; y: 0; width: gridDelegate.width; height: gridDelegate.height
                }
            }
        ]

        transitions: [
            Transition {
                ParentAnimation {
                    NumberAnimation { properties: 'x,y,width,height'; duration: 300 }
                }
            }
        ]
    }
}

A DelegateModel allows the individual views to access their specific items from the shared package delegate.

DelegateModel {
    id: visualModel
    delegate: Delegate {}
    model: myModel
}

ListView {
    id: lv
    height: parent.height/2
    width: parent.width

    model: visualModel.parts.list
}
GridView {
    y: parent.height/2
    height: parent.height/2
    width: parent.width
    cellWidth: width / 2
    cellHeight: 50
    model: visualModel.parts.grid
}

ObjectModel

ObjectModel uses an ObjectModel for the model instead of a ListModel.

    ObjectModel {
        id: itemModel

        Rectangle {
            width: view.width; height: view.height
            color: "#FFFEF0"
            Text { text: "Page 1"; font.bold: true; anchors.centerIn: parent }

            Component.onDestruction: if (printDestruction) print("destroyed 1")
        }
        Rectangle {
            width: view.width; height: view.height
            color: "#F0FFF7"
            Text { text: "Page 2"; font.bold: true; anchors.centerIn: parent }

            Component.onDestruction: if (printDestruction) print("destroyed 2")
        }
        Rectangle {
            width: view.width; height: view.height
            color: "#F4F0FF"
            Text { text: "Page 3"; font.bold: true; anchors.centerIn: parent }

            Component.onDestruction: if (printDestruction) print("destroyed 3")
        }
    }

    ListView {
        id: view
        anchors { fill: parent; bottomMargin: 30 }
        model: itemModel
        preferredHighlightBegin: 0; preferredHighlightEnd: 0
        highlightRangeMode: ListView.StrictlyEnforceRange
        orientation: ListView.Horizontal
        snapMode: ListView.SnapOneItem; flickDeceleration: 2000
        cacheBuffer: 200
    }

Display Margins

Display Margins uses delegates to display items and implements a simple header and footer components.
