I'm using GoupDataModel to show data in ListView.
Now I need to find record(s) in the list, can any body help me to loop throgh the datamodel to get the indexPath? I've tried to use datamodel.find(), but it doesn't work.
Thanks in advanced.

indexPath is a simple JS array, where first element have a index.
var indexPath = new Array(); indexPath = 0; // get first element of DataModel var item = dataModel.data(indexPath);

So how I can search an indexpath which content is alike a keyword in groupdatamodel.
Example: I have a listview contains all of the name of country in the world. How do i get the indexPath of Singapore and make the listview scroll to Singapore.

DataModel has childCount method so just iterate elements from 0 to childCount - 1.
You can create indexPath for each element then request data using .data method.
Once you know indexPath of required element, use ListView's scrollToItem method.
Another approach is to filter the data based on search string then repopulate the DataModel, so only relevant entries are shown.
You can also create another DataModel which will expose only a subset of original DataModel:

1) Add a function to your DataModel class that returns an index path of a data item. Since the internals of DataModel are fully customizable, you can create any logic you want for defining index paths, just as long as the function uses logic that complements the data() function.
2) Expanding on Zmey's point, iterate through the DataModel children recursively until you find the object you are looking for. Keep track of the path while you search.
Get the DataModel from your ListView using dataModel(). Get the data qvariant from your ListItem using ListItem.data(). In the DataModel there are the childCount() and data() methods that you can use to iterate through all the objects in your data model. Check to see if the data() returns the same value of your ListItem.data(). If it does, you know you have the right indexPath - if not you have to try another indexPath.
There might be better, more direct ways but these should work. Option #1 is the most efficient but option #2 might be necessary if you can't change your DataModel definition.
