Tiles

Tiles adds drag and drop to simple rectangles, which you can drag into a specific grid.

It has a DragTile component which uses a MouseArea to move an item when dragged:

Item {
    id: root
    property string colorKey

    width: 64; height: 64

    MouseArea {
        id: mouseArea

        width: 64; height: 64
        anchors.centerIn: parent

        drag.target: tile

        onReleased: parent = tile.Drag.target !== null ? tile.Drag.target : root

        Rectangle {
            id: tile

            width: 64; height: 64
            anchors.verticalCenter: parent.verticalCenter
            anchors.horizontalCenter: parent.horizontalCenter

            color: colorKey

            Drag.keys: [ colorKey ]
            Drag.active: mouseArea.drag.active
            Drag.hotSpot.x: 32
            Drag.hotSpot.y: 32
            states: State {
                when: mouseArea.drag.active
                ParentChange { target: tile; parent: root }
                AnchorChanges { target: tile; anchors.verticalCenter: undefined; anchors.horizontalCenter: undefined }
            }

        }
    }
}

And a DropTile component on which the dragged tiles can be dropped:

DropArea {
    id: dragTarget

    property string colorKey
    property alias dropProxy: dragTarget

    width: 64; height: 64
    keys: [ colorKey ]

    Rectangle {
        id: dropRectangle

        anchors.fill: parent
        color: colorKey

        states: [
            State {
                when: dragTarget.containsDrag
                PropertyChanges {
                    target: dropRectangle
                    color: "grey"
                }
            }
        ]
    }
}

The keys property of the DropArea will only allow an item to be dropped on it if it has a matching key in its Drag.keys property.

GridView Example

The ** GridView Example adds drag and drop to a GridView , allowing you to visually reorder the delegates without changing the underlying ListModel . It uses a DelegateModel to move a delegate item to the position of another item it is dragged over.

model: DelegateModel {
    delegate: DropArea {
        id: delegateRoot

        width: 80; height: 80

        onEntered: visualModel.items.move(drag.source.visualIndex, icon.visualIndex)
        property int visualIndex: DelegateModel.itemsIndex
        Binding { target: icon; property: "visualIndex"; value: visualIndex }

        Rectangle {
            id: icon
            property int visualIndex: 0
            width: 72; height: 72
            anchors {
                horizontalCenter: parent.horizontalCenter;
                verticalCenter: parent.verticalCenter
            }
            radius: 3
            color: model.color

            Text {
                anchors.centerIn: parent
                color: "white"
                text: parent.visualIndex
            }

            DragHandler {
                id: dragHandler
            }

            Drag.active: dragHandler.active
            Drag.source: icon
            Drag.hotSpot.x: 36
            Drag.hotSpot.y: 36

            states: [
                State {
                    when: icon.Drag.active
                    ParentChange {
                        target: icon
                        parent: root
                    }

                    AnchorChanges {
                        target: icon
                        anchors.horizontalCenter: undefined
                        anchors.verticalCenter: undefined
                    }
                }
            ]
        }
    }
