ListView {
            dataModel: XmlDataModel {
                source: "xmlfile.xml"
            listItemComponents: [
                ListItemComponent {
                    type: "sample"
                    Container {
                        Label {
                            text: ListItemData.name            
                ListItemComponent {
                    type: "description"  
                    Container {                
                        Label {
                            text: ListItemData.text



Take a look at the cascades cookbook qml main.qml file (and the recipeitem.qml file) this will give you a good understanding of the listview and using xml documents.
