Invokation framework. Problem sharing simple text



I would like to have an option to share simple text on my application. For this I'm using this code in my .QML file:


ActionItem {
     attachedObjects: [
          Invocation {
               id: invoke
               query: InvokeQuery {
                    id: invokeQuery
                    mimeType: "text/plain"
                    data: "This is a text text"
     title: qsTr("Share")
     imageSource: "asset:///images/share.png"
     ActionBar.placement: ActionBarPlacement.OnBar
     onTriggered: {

 With the text above I can see the hardcoded text appear in all the applications I can share it to (the bold line), however, if I use the following line to change the text dynamically for the current element of the List instead I get nothing. No text is shared at all:


data: ListItemData.description

 Did anybody was able to successfully share a plain dynamic text?

Re: Invokation framework. Problem sharing simple text

Well, I managed to get a solution, but I had to use C++ instead of QML. Here you have it, just in case any of you have the same problem:


void MyApp::share(QString name, QString surname, QString age)
     printf("Share invoked");

     m_pInvocation = Invocation::create(
	       .data(name.toUtf8() + surname.toUtf8() + age.toUtf8()));
	  QObject::connect(m_pInvocation, SIGNAL(armed()),
	    this, SLOT(onArmed()));
	  QObject::connect(m_pInvocation, SIGNAL(finished()),
	    m_pInvocation, SLOT(deleteLater()));

// Declare the following method as SLOT on your .hpp file
void MyApp::onArmed() {
