C++ injection to QML NavigationPane

Hey everyone, this is my first post so go easy on me


I'm looking at src of Kakel, Weatherguesser and the website for C++ QML integration. Pretty much understand how it's working and managed to replicate the work...


Problem  - I can only get it working when using main.qml and not on a navigation pane page


If I have "playAreaContainer" anywhere on the actual tabbed qml file (main.qml) injecting a component works.

BUT when "playAreaContainer" is on one of the NavigationPane stack injecting fails.


The weatherguesser does something similar but uses datamodels and I wanted a simpler example


Any help?

        mQmlDocument = QmlDocument::create("asset:///main.qml");
	mQmlDocument->setContextProperty("wordsPlus", this);

	if (!mQmlDocument->hasErrors()) {

		// The application navigationPane is created from QML.
		TabbedPane *tabs = mQmlDocument->createRootObject<TabbedPane>();
		mRootContainer = tabs->findChild<Container*>("playAreaContainer");

		if (tabs) {
			// Set the main application scene to NavigationPane.


void WordsPlus::injectContainer()
	qDebug() << "Inside injectContainer - C++";
