Invalid scaling method

We extended ImageView in C++. It doesn't let us set the scaling method to none. We always get the log message "Invalid scaling method"


Either if we set it to none in C++ it does not work.



 Or if we set it to none in QML it does not work.

scalingMethod: ScalingMethod.None

 All the other scaling methods work fine.


How do we make the ImageView not to scale the image?


The only solution we see is to implement the ImageView in QML which is not our preferred solution.

Re: Invalid scaling method

Okay, I found a really dirty workaround.


Assume we have a QByteArray containing the image data:


QImage qImage = QImage::fromData(imageData);
