I believe it does.

 

Have you checked this sample out?

I think what the OP is referring to here is like Qt support of urls for image views.

example in Qt QML if you have

ImageView{
src:"http://..../image.png"
}

during rendering the system will automatically download,scale and render the image.

While this has been voted a lot of times in different threads, i still dont see it in the roadmap on the site.

Re: Will ImageView, ImageTracker support web URLs?

I cannot understand why this isn't supported since it already exists on Qt!

Can someone vote this up to RIM as a request by developers? I also just assumed that it was supported :smileysad:

Re: Will ImageView, ImageTracker support web URLs?

I'm comming from the world of Symbian QtQuick, and I was very surpised when I saw that this feature doesn't exist in Cascades...

 

Hope it will be in a future release.

Re: Will ImageView, ImageTracker support web URLs?

In View of Cascade reinvent the wheel by creating a new QML, it would be greate if they makes same features than the original QML. Particullary the data source system which can load local or web data. 

In fact, with the original QML , I was able to create a RSS reader with 10 lines of codes. Now with the bb QML, I reach 100 more..

Re: Will ImageView, ImageTracker support web URLs?

I agree.
dridk, did you find a good way to bind data, from a webservice with images urls, to a listview ?
