    Property Documentation

    isKey : bool

    Defines whether this is a key role.

    Key roles are used to to determine whether a set of values should be updated or added to the XML list model when XmlListModel::reload() is called.

    See also XmlListModel.


    name : string

    The name for the role. This name is used to access the model data for this role.

    For example, the following model has a role named "title", which can be accessed from the view's delegate:

     XmlListModel {
         id: xmlModel
         ...
         XmlRole { name: "title"; query: "title/string()" }
     }
    
     ListView {
         model: xmlModel
         delegate: Text { text: title }
     }

    query : string

    The relative XPath expression query for this role. The query must be relative; it cannot start with a '/'.

    For example, if there is an XML document like this:

     <?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1" ?>
     <catalogue>
         <book type="Hardcover">
             <title>C++ GUI Programming with Qt 4</title>
             <year>2006</year>
             <author>Jasmin Blanchette</author>
             <author>Mark Summerfield</author>
         </book>
         <book type="Paperback">
             <title>Programming with Qt</title>
             <year>2002</year>
             <author>Matthias Kalle Dalheimer</author>
         </book>
      </catalogue>

    Here are some valid XPath expressions for XmlRole queries on this document:

     XmlListModel {
         id: model
         ...
         // XmlRole queries will be made on <book> elements
         query: "/catalogue/book"
    
         // query the book title
         XmlRole { name: "title"; query: "title/string()" }
    
         // query the book's year
         XmlRole { name: "year"; query: "year/number()" }
    
         // query the book's type (the '@' indicates 'type' is an attribute, not an element)
         XmlRole { name: "type"; query: "@type/string()" }
    
         // query the book's first listed author (note in XPath the first index is 1, not 0)
         XmlRole { name: "first_author"; query: "author[1]/string()" }
     }

    See the W3C XPath 2.0 specification for more information.
