Use GroupDataModel

// If your data is in the list, then you need just this in QML
var json = JSON.parse(jsonData)
for (var item in json){

// Or just model.insertList(json)

 Hope it helps

Re: Create a dynamic list

Hi babakar,


Our Cascades-Samples repo on Github contains a few very useful sample apps that demo the use of json data in your app. You could checkout the following samples that I personally found very useful for explaing how to work with and parse json data:






There is also the bucketlist, the rssnews, the stampcollector and the weatherguesser sample apps that you could checkout for working with json data in your app.
