ListView checkBox

[ Edited ]



So  I have a ListView with a ListItemComponent that has a custom row.

Inside that custom row I have a  checkbox   that I can click without  triggering the row selection.

How can I find out what row has been clicked (or the information that is there on the row)

Can this be done with qml?


   Container {
        ListView {
            id: List
            layout: StackListLayout {
                headerMode: ListHeaderMode.Sticky

            dataModel: dataModel
            listItemComponents: [
                ListItemComponent {
                    type: "item"
                    CustomItem {

                           //a custom item with a check box that can be checked on/off





thanks guys Smiley Wink

Re: ListView checkBox

Hi! It should be possible.


- Create CheckBox and make sure onCheckedChanged is called.


CheckBox {
  id: checkboxId
  text: "Checkbox title"
  onCheckedChanged: {
    console.log("onCheckedChanged called");



- In onCheckedChanged handler get the row number from ListItem.indexPath. ListItem is available only on the root element of ListItemComponent. See this page for details on accessing the root from child elements:

Re: ListView checkBox

The best way is to add the checked Value directly in your model. Otherwise, you will lost you checked during ListView refresh. So, if you are using an ArrayDataModel with a "checked" key property  : 


So in your CheckBox {


onChecked : ListItemData.checked = false;

Re: ListView checkBox

how do you add key values in a model ? and then be able to acces them with  ListItemData.checked (or something like this ?


Could you do something like this


  dataModel:ArrayDataModel {
                id: arrayModel
                property bool checked;              <-------------------------------key value





PS:I know that you add the keys when you insert the data in the model,but is there another way?
