Use QObject as property in UI element

I am attempting to store an instance of QObject in a UI element for later use. My attempt to use a QtObject type failed as follows:


var model = retrieveModel() // Retrieves QObject instance from Q_INVOKABLE C++ method

containerInstance.model = model


Container {

  id: containerInstance

  property QtObject model // <-- Attempt to store the QObject here


    text: model.name

    onXYZ: {

      // Use QObject model here




But apparently QtObject differs from QObject:


asset:///Test.qml:51: Error: Cannot assign QObject* to bb::cascades::QmlQObject*


Does anyone have an idea to store a QObject as a property of a UI element? My other option is to store the model QObject instance as a global variable in "Qt.<name>" but that is not a nice solution.

Re: Use QObject as property in UI element

You need to expose the object you want to use in C++ to QML.


Read this to understand how that is done...
