This class is often used for optimization purposes, as it allows you to defer an expensive operation until after all the properties have been set on an object. For example, QML’s Text element uses the parser status to defer text layout until all of its properties have been set (we don’t want to layout when the
text is assigned, and then relayout when the
font is assigned, and relayout again when the
width is assigned, and so on).
Be aware that
QQmlParserStatus methods are only called when a class is instantiated by a
QQmlEngine . If you create the same class directly from C++, these methods will not be called automatically. To avoid this problem, it is recommended that you start deferring operations from
classBegin instead of from the initial creation of your class. This will still prevent multiple revaluations during initial binding assignment in QML, but will not defer operations invoked from C++.
class MyObject(QObject, QQmlParserStatus): Q_OBJECT Q_INTERFACES(QQmlParserStatus) # public MyObject(QObject parent = None) # ... def classBegin(): def componentComplete():
- class PySide6.QtQml.QQmlParserStatus#
- abstract PySide6.QtQml.QQmlParserStatus.classBegin()#
Invoked after class creation, but before any properties have been set.
- abstract PySide6.QtQml.QQmlParserStatus.componentComplete()#
Invoked after the root component that caused this instantiation has completed construction. At this point all static values and binding values have been assigned to the class.
