# This example illustrates exposing a QStringList as a model in QML

if __name__ == '__main__':
    app = QGuiApplication(sys.argv)

    dataList = ["Item 1", "Item 2", "Item 3", "Item 4"]

    view = QQuickView()
    view.setInitialProperties({"model": dataList })

    qml_file = Path(__file__).parent / "view.qml"

    r = app.exec()
    del view

ListView {
    width: 100
