Re: XmlDataModel could not open the file

check if your model.xml is in assets/qml folder in files system. I keep xml's in xml folder. 


ListView {
  dataModel: XmlDataModel {
  source: "xml/model.xml"

Re: XmlDataModel could not open the file

How are you setting the dataModel?  It looks like you have an extra "/" in your path:




It should be set in the form:


source: "models/stamps.xml"


Could you be setting it as:


source: "/models/stamps.xml"?
