Detailed Description

See also Qt QML.

Property Documentation

isKey : bool

Defines whether this is a key role. Key roles are used 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" ?>
<catalog>
    <book type="Online" wanted="true">
        <title>Qt 5 Cadaques</title>
        <year>2014</year>
        <author>Juergen Bocklage-Ryannel</author>
        <author>Johan Thelin</author>
    </book>
    <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>
 </catalog>

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

XmlListModel {
    id: model
    ...
    // XmlRole queries will be made on <book> elements
    query: "/catalog/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()" }

    // query the wanted attribute as a boolean
    XmlRole { name: "wanted"; query: "boolean(@wanted)" }
}

Accessing the model data for the above roles from a delegate:

ListView {
    width: 300; height: 200
    model: model
    delegate: Column {
        Text { text: title + " (" + type + ")"; font.bold: wanted }
        Text { text: first_author }
        Text { text: year }
    }
