Startup Tab

Hello everyone!


I'm looking for a way to make the user choose the tab on which the app starts.

Re: Startup Tab

How about just using Qsettings to record the last one they were on?

If you've been helped click on Like Button, if you've been saved buy the app. Smiley Happy

Re: Startup Tab

In your main.qml


TabbedPane {
    id: root_tab

    activeTab: activeTab()
    function activeTab() {
        var default_tab = settings.getvalueFor("default_tab", "some_tab");
        switch (default_tab) {
            case "some_tab": return some_tab
            case "second_tab": return second_tab
            case "third_tab": return third_tab
            case "fourth_tab": return fourth_tab


In my case I have a qml->setContextProperty for 'settings' in application constructor

Hope you know/figure out how to use QSettings.
