NavigationPane not found

Hello guys.


I want to control a NavigationPane with C++ yet findChild can't find it. Thoughts?

C++: http://pastebin.com/5LPf4L5T


I've tried quite a couple things with this, yet navPane is always pointing to 0.

Re: NavigationPane not found

The object of AbstractPane in your code (i.e. root) itself is what you are looking for. You need not find navigation pane in side this root. root is the navigation pane. If you want to cast it to NavigationPane just use below shown code:


navPane = qobject_cast<NavigationPane *>(root);
