JIRA Issue Required ?

Consider these three QML files from three projects:


(1) cascadescookbookqml : RecipeItem.qml


(2) ListViewBulkLoad     : ListItem.qml

(3) ListViewPagedLoad : ListItem.qml


(These are the two "ScrollableLists" project variants.)


Each of the QML files contains either or both of these handlers:


    ListItem.onSelectedChanged : {

    ListItem.onActiveChanged : {        

First,  AFAIK, there is no documentation for these (and other?) handlers. Should a JIRA issue be created to this effect?


Second, by adding console.log(...) statements (to the first of the handlers listed in the code, above), I see that not only does ListItem.onSelectedChanged get called when a list item is selected, but (after editing the handler name to onSelectionChanged) "onSelectionChanged" works just as well. So what exactly is going on here?

Re: JIRA Issue Required ?

Hi there,


I see this thread has been left unattended. Are you still having issues?


If documentation is missing, I would strongly encourage a JIRA for that;

In your message you refer to 'onActiveChanged'. Is this getting hit as well when you change selection?
