    the Storage type is a simple key value database with get and set methods, but it will not trigger a changed signal automatically. Thus your property binding will not be re-evaluated automatically.

    Your use-case would be a perfect fit for the Settings qml type.

    import Felgo 3.0
    import QtQuick 2.9
    import Qt.labs.settings 1.0
    App {
      id: app
      NavigationStack {
        Page {
          id: page
          title: "Settings"
          Settings {
            id: user_settings
            // you can set a default value for the very first app start, after that it will always be read from the storage
            property bool show_box: true
          Rectangle {
            anchors.centerIn: parent
            color: "red"
            width: dp(100)
            height: dp(100)
            visible: user_settings.show_box
          AppButton {
            anchors.horizontalCenter: parent.horizontalCenter
            text: user_settings.show_box ? "hide" : "show"
            onClicked: {
              user_settings.show_box = !user_settings.show_box

    Would this be a solution for you?




    The problem is the page where I set user_settings.show_box is on a different page (so, as far as I know, I can’t access the properties on the page with the red box). When I go to the page where the show_box setting is changed, change it, and return to the page with the red box, it doesn’t seem to run the Component.onCompleted {} code again, which would update the show_box setting. How can I force it to run the Component.onCompleted {} code every time I navigate to the page? Currently it only runs Component.onCompleted{} the first time the page is navigated to after the app was closed and restarted. Or is there something other than Component.onCompleted {} that I should be using?


    If onCompeted{} is only run the first time the app loads, is there something that can effectively ‘unload’ a specific page?


    Thank you for your time,

    Hi Eric,

    pages have pushed and popped signals that you can use. These are fired when using a NavigationStack. The NavigationStack itself also has those signal, as well as properties like currentPage, so you can listen to onCurrentPageChanged to determine if you need to reload your page. If you navigating with Tabs/Drawer of the Navigation instead, you can use its properties to determine whenever a page changed and which one is currently active.

    There is no generic signal that is fired when a page becomes visible, as this very specific to how you navigate within your app.

    Hope I could point you in the right direction.




    Thank you for your replies, Alex. Here is what I did:

    I wasn’t thinking too well and realized that all I need to do is place the show_box property initialization in the App {} section so I can access it from anywhere so if I change it on one page, it’s changed for all pages. This is the obvious answer and I’m sorry you had to spend your time with such a silly question.
