Not supporting CustomControl

Hi friends,

     I want to custom some controls. So I have refer this site: https://developer.blackberry.com/native/reference/cascades/bb__cascades__customcontrol.html. But when I add "import custom.control.lib 1.0" this line in my QML file, it is not supported and shows "Unknown library custom.control.lib" this popup. I am using Momentics IDE 2.0 which is downloaded from Blackberry's official web site for developers. So what is the problem that I can not find out. Do you have any idea? Please help me.

Re: Not supporting CustomControl

you write custom controls in c++, then use them in qml.
you can't just import a lib

Re: Not supporting CustomControl

Just to back up Gonish a little the documentation actually defines QML files that contain a control rather than a page as custom controls in QML as well so it is easy to get confused.  For QML custom controls just define the control in a different QML file no library inclusion is neccesary.


However Simon is right and for CustomControl you will need to work in C++.
